"Swimmer King" as written by and Jacob Rolleston Patrick Damphier....
like going swimming out in a trash heap
you try your best not to swallow the water
you try your best to not go under
we sit unmoving, eyes on the swimmer king
for what it's worth, they're drowning all the same
life in the circus, outside the water tank
he hit his mark, they're drowning all the same
like reading books in a different language
you try your best not to lose any interest
you try your best to not go further
we sit unmoving, eyes on the swimmer king
for what it's worth, they're drowning all the same
life in the circus, outside the water tank
he hit his mark, but they're drowning all the same
come up now
with ears underwater, you only hear yourself
come up now
with ears underwater, you only hear yourself
we sit unmoving, eyes on the swimmer king
for what it's worth, they're drowning all the same
life in the circus, outside the water tank
he hit his mark, they're drowning all the same

    General CommentI like the upbeat background in this song. And the voice of Paper Rival's vocalist is very smooth and perfect for this song. It all ties together.
