"Sink or Swim" as written by Christian Robert Crippin, Jacob William Hoggard, Thomas Walter Macdonald, Dave Rosin and David Robert Madison Genn....
I've heard this all before,
Don't waste my time,
Don't break my balls,
Get out my door.
Though you won't see me caving in
Let's sell my stuff
And show you what's makin' me spin.

So if you, peel away the skin
If you find that some survive
But they can't always win
I stand out, in the shallow end

You won't see me drown, when I sink or swim

Sink or swim

Don't spell this out in tears,
Don't play those games, or say these names,
And let your fears.
I told you no means no.
You got your chance, you broke my heart,
It's time to go.

So if you, peel away the skin
You'll find that some survive
But they can't always win

And I stand up, in the shallow end
You won't see me down when I sink or swim

You won't see me drown when I sink or swim

It's all better, it's all better

So if you, you peel away the skin,
You'll find that some survive
But they can't always win
Just stand up, to the shallow end
You won't see me drown, if I sink or swim

And my love's come to a bitter end

I hope you drown when you sink or swim
I hope you drown when you sink or swim

Sink or swim.
You sink or swim

    I've heard this all before
    Don't waste my time, don't break my balls, get out my door.
    You wont see me caving in
    It's time I stand and show you what's making me spin

    So if you, peel away the skin
    You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
    I'll stand up, to the shallow end
    You won't see me drown when I sink or swim

    Don't spell this out in tears
    Don't play those games or say these names and live your fears
    I told you no means no
    You had your chance, you broke my heart, its time to go

    So if you, peel away the skin
    You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
    I'll stand up, to the shallow end
    You won't see me drown when I sink or swim
    You won't see me drown when I sink or swim

    So if you, peel away the skin
    You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
    I'll stand up, to the shallow end
    You won't see me drown when I sink or swim
    Our loves come to a bitter end
    I hope you drown when you sink or swim
    I hope you drown when you sink or swim
    Sink or swim
    You sink or swim
