i slip beneath the surface
it’s calm and quiet down there
where i can dissolve all the poison of worthlessness
escape until i come up for air

so i can breathe again
it’s over now the panic has passed
but i will have to leave you soon
i don’t know how long this solace can last

responsibility suffocates
i got differences i can’t reconcile
i’ve had enough, grab my boots, hit the concrete
i gotta get outta my skin for awhile

so i can breathe again
it’s over now the panic has passed
but i will have to leave you soon
i don’t know how long this solace can last

last night i left my sweetness somewhere
the morning was bitter to taste
i spent all day dredging for it
but what a waste
hey you gotta swallow it down
you gotta swallow it down

so i can breathe again
it’s over now the panic has passed
but i will have to leave you soon
i don’t know how long this solace can last
