I've got a drownin sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here
With every time I feel this
I fight to not reveal this
I hide the hand that shakes in fear

Heavy in this ocean all around
Tired of swimming in this sickness I have found

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again

I've got a drownin sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here
I'd try to verbalize this
If I could realize this
So many things I can't see clear

Heavy in this ocean all around
Tired of swimming in this sickness I have found

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again
Wake me when I drown
Shed my skin
I'm born again

I've got a drownin sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this

I've got a drownin sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again
Wake me when I drown
Shed my skin
I'm born again

    General Commentthis song rules.
    and so does the band,
    im upset that so few people even know about them though
    very dissapointing for such a good band.

    General CommentAmazing song, dark and inspiring in its own way.

    If this was on mainstream radio it would MUCH more popular. I love this group and their work.
