"I run to the river and dive straight in, I pray that the water will drown out the din, but as the water fills my mouth it couldn’t wash the echoes out..
Oh the river, oh the river, it’s running free. And oh the joy, oh the joy it brings to me. But I know it’ll have to drown me, Before I can breathe easy..
Your songs remind me of swimming, which I forgot when I started to sink. Dragged further away from the shore, and deeper into the drink. Take a deep breath, suck the water in my chest, cross my fingers and hope for the best..
I was a heavy heart to carry, my feet dragged across the ground and he took me to the river, where he slowly let me drown..
So lay me down, let the only sound, be the overflow. Pockets full of stones..
Looking up from underneath fractured moonlight on the sea. Reflections still look the same to me as before I went under. And it’s peaceful in the deep cathedral where you cannot breathe. No need to pray, no need to speak. Now I am under all. And it’s breaking over me, a thousand miles down to the sea bed, found the place to rest my head. And it’s over and I’m going under. But I’m not giving up, I’m just giving in, I’m slipping underneath so cold and so sweet..”
