it’s not because i’d like to forget you
or bury your memory deep inside
i used to die a little everyday
but in the end it’s just the will to survive
what else can i do?

cause when the walls come tumbling down
and the waters rush in all around
i gotta get myself to higher ground
lest i drown

late at night that’s when i miss you most
your image is branded behind my eyes
in translucent dreams you drift through like a ghost
i can’t let you in and god knows i can’t ignore
your hold over me

cause when the walls come tumbling down
and the waters rush in all around
i gotta get myself to higher ground
lest i drown

but no one tells you that it’s gonna hurt this long
so go ahead and build your shell
to hide inside when the waters start to rise
but you may as well

cause when the walls come tumbling down
and the waters rush in all around
you gotta get yourself to higher ground
lest you drown
