Trying not to hold my breath
But my lungs are filled inside this chest
I've been helpless and I couldn't have cared less
Of anything that could or has been said
In the future, past or present tense

Been my own best friend, clouds over my head
Been on this sinking ship, decided that it's sink or swim
The water's coming in, foundation's wearing thin
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be missed
Swim with the ship again

Trying not to hold my breath
But my lungs are filled inside this chest
I've been helpless and I couldn't have cared less
Of anything that could or has been said
And what those words mean or what they meant
In the future, past or present tense

Been my own best friend, clouds over my head
Been on this sinking ship, decided that it's sink or swim
The water's coming in, foundation's wearing thin
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be missed
Swim with the ship
Giving up inch by inch

In twenty words or less I'll describe this mess
I drank to forget
Holding hopelessness, never cared what they said
Now I'm on this ledge in crisis and I couldn't care less

Been my own best friend, clouds over my head
Been on this sinking ship, decided that it's sink or swim
The water's coming in, foundation's wearing thin
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be missed again

Been my own best friend, clouds over my head
Been on this sinking ship, decided that it's sink or swim
The water's coming in, foundation's wearing thin
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be missed
Swim with the ship
Giving up inch by inch
And I've lost my own best friend
