Hold on
Hold on
Looking for a reason to go on
Alone again
On my own again
Now everything has turned
From right to wrong

Oh, trying to keep afloat
I'm on a sinking boat
Trying to keep afloat

Begining to find
I'm low on time
Floating on the ocean in a storm
The shore is gone
And the end has drowned
But hope only shines
The brighter in the night

Oh, fighting to keep afloat
The world's a sinking boat
Fighting to keep afloat

Oh I'm watching it pass me by
It's flashing before my eyes
I'd die for another try
But the world is sinking
Let it all go
Let it go

    General CommentYeah pretty much it does mean that the person is trying to get through their troubles...especially the part "Hope only shines brighter in the night", which I think means, now that his life is going through all these bad circumstances, hope and good looks even better than before..but yeah, 'tis a radical song!
