"Drowning" as written by Alan Robert Goldstein and Joey Zampella....
Stand up
You know you have the right too
Speak up
For the things that you believe
And we lift off
They will stab you
In the back over again
Take your integrity

[Chorus]
How long will you let this go on
They're drowning you in fear

Speak up
Your voice should stand in breaking through
It's time now
It's gone on way too long
As we lift off
They will tear you into little pieces
I think there is something wrong

[Chorus]

You're letting your hopes
Go straight to hell
And I know the end is near
Is near

The time will come
The time will come
The time will come
You will be sorry for what you've done
The time will come

[Chorus]

You're letting your hopes
Go straight to hell
And I know the end is near
Is near
You say you're sorry
For what it's worth

    General CommentWell as far as the meaning goes its pretty clear but the way i see it is that this song is about standing up for yourself and about how the things you hear on the news and from the goverment a.ka. "Them" scare some people into completly losing their sense of indepence almost. Amazing song i have to say, definitely one of the gems on their first cd.

    General CommentGREAT SONG! But it's actually called Drowning You In Fear.
    "As we lift off"???
    --If you let them, they will stab you in the back over again.

    General Commentthese are the correct lyrics for this awesome song!


    Stand up
    You know you have the right to
    Speak out
    For the things that you believe
    If you let them
    They will stab you in the back over again
    Take your integrity

    How long will you let this go on?
    They're drowning you in fear

    Speak up
    Your voice just isn't breaking through
    It's time now
    It's gone on way too long
    If you let them
    They will tear you into little pieces
    I think there's something wrong

    How long will you let this go on?
    They're drowning you in fear
    You're letting your hopes go straight to hell
    and I know the end is near

    The time will come
    The time will come
    The time will come
    You will be sorry for what you've done
    The time will come

    How long will you let this go on?
    They're drowning you in fear
    You're letting your hopes go straight to hell
    And I know the end is near, is near

    You say you're sorry for what it's worth

    General Commentthis song amaze's me. i love how scary kids doesnt just sing about breakups and sunshine and how much you love your boyfriend or whatever. they actually talk about the world and stuff..i like it =)

    i have no idea what this song is referring to but my interpretation is the news and radio and tv that talk about all these horrible things going on in the world, there "drowning you in fear", and how you lose your own personal opinions and whatnot. and that you need to remember to stand up for your self and be an individual and live life to the fullest no matter what the public says. :]
