If only you were here to hold my head above bloody waters
We could make it through
You turned your back on me and now I do the same to you
You made me feel so hollow
How can the man that you looked up to turn around and say three words that hurt more than you'll ever know
You don't know what it feels like to be in my shoes
You turned your back on me as I stood there and fell to the floor
This time there's no reason for me to turn around and scream for help
But if only you were here to hold my head above all those things you said to tie me down
I'm looking for forgiveness for something that I didn't even do
How can you call yourself and idol, a person to trust?
How can I look so high up when you're always holding me down?

    General CommentThis song seems to be aimed at perhaps a parent or other support figure in his life that seemed to tell him he was never good enough, and never really supported him. He felt guilty about it for a while ("I'm looking for forgiveness for something I didn't even do) then realized he never did anything wrong, and so now he realizes they were holding him down and is turning away from them.
