Drowning in black
Drowning in white
Gray is the only thing in sight
My lungs are filled with disease
Dark cloud hangs over me
Think clumps of dust make it hard to breathe
There is a better place
I know
Because I saw you go
And you came back shining so bright
Next to you I look so white
But still I'd rather not leave
I'd rather not go
Because then I'd be drowning in you
Drowning in light
Drowning in Paradise

There is no place
I'd rather not see
Than the place you came from for me
Maybe it's beautiful
Maybe it's bright
After all it's Paradise
But things will still burn
Things will still fall
Bad things will still happen in a perfect little world

But still I'd rather not leave
I'd rather not go
Because then I'd be drowning in you
Drowning in light
Drowning in Paradise

Drowning in black
Drowning in white
Gray is the only thing in sight

But still I'd rather not leave
I'd rather not go
Because then I'd be drowning in you
Drowning in light
Drowning in a good place
That's the worst way to die by
Drowning in Paradise
Drowning in Paradise
Drowning in Paradise
Who'd want to drown in Paradise?
