Bad news! Bad news! I tripped the alarm, and now I hear the sounds of rushing water! (This is no time to panic! I'll get you out!) How could you be so calm at a time like this? This just happens to be life or death for me. (I'll think of something... our target approaches.)

Remember, just keep breathing. Remember, save your strength. And above all, remember to keep calm. (Right this way, sir. Well worth the wait, sir. I mean no harm, sir. I mean no harm, sir. I...)

Up to my neck and I can figure it out! Just sing me to sleep. "Don't speak, you need the air for breathing". (Don't speak, you need the air.)

I feel my chest collapsing. My lungs will swell and burst. (Don't fade! Don't fade! Don't lose hope! Just stay afloat.) Oh, I can't believe it! You dont seem to care at all! (Thieves like you are a dime a dozen, and skills like yours are easily replaced.)

Don't say these words. You know you don't mean them! Don't say these words. You know you don't. (Nothing personal, nothing serious but your easily replaced.)

(I'm obliged to make your aquaintance.) Up to my neck and I can't figure it out. Just sing me to sleep. "Don't speak, you need the air for breathing." (Don't speak, you need the air.)

Up to my eyes and (and I cant feel alive) I'm just seconds away. Don't speak, you need the air for breathing. (Don't speak, you need the air.) Up to my eyes and (and it's good I dont feel alive) I'm just seconds away. Don't speak, you need the air for breathing. (Don't speak, you need the air.)

(Rooftop to the entrance, it's all all according to plan. Stairwell to the basement, it's all to perfect and all too beautiful. Everything was planned and executed perfectly. I'll see you in hell. Over and out. Over and out.) I feel my chest collapsing. My lungs will swell and burst and you don't seem to care at all. This underlying suspicion, I'm concerned could all be true, is haunting my thoughts as we speak. Assure me that you'll do what you can considering I risked my life for you. Your voice is fading out. I can't make out your last words. Don't leave me in here! Don't leave me in here.

Come back! Come back here! I'm still trapped! Come back! Come back here! I'll see you in hell. (You're on your own! You're on your own! I'm finished with you! You're own your own! You're on your own!)
