Give me some religion
Pass the wine
'cause this time I can't hold it in like I always did
Give me some more tv, make it loud, make believe
I'm in desperate need for some company
Attention this is not a test
help me get this moving target off my chest
from my closest friends
Save me from this hopelessness
Talk some sense into this head
Help stop this endless SOS

Treading water with weights around my neck
Shipwreck of reckless accidents
Overboard and I'm about to quit
Head first I dive in this deep end
Abandon ship 'cause it's sinking way to quick

Give me some forgiveness and I'll try
'cause this time if I pull the pin out, we'll blow to bits.
Give me some more music I'll sit and read the lyrics like a bible, a gospel, a sing-a-long
Attention this is not a test
Swim to shore before unconciousness my hands feel like they're made of bricks
Save me from my recklessness
Talk some sense into this head
Help stop this endless SOS

Treading water with weights around my neck
Shipwreck of reckless accidents
Overboard and I'm about to quit
Head first I dive in this deep end
Abandon ship 'cause it's sinking way to quick

Can't listen to all the reasons
I just need one more thing to believe in
The one thing that will keep me breathing
I've things to do when I hit dry land

Treading water with weights around my neck
Shipwreck of reckless accidents
Overboard and I'm about to quit
Head first I dive in this deep end
Abandon ship 'cause it's sinking way to quick

    General CommentI think this song is about needing a reason to keep going on after life has just put you down time after time.


    "Give me some religion"

    "Give me some more tv, make it loud, make believe
    I'm in desperate need for some company"

    "Give me some forgiveness and I'll try"

    "Give me some more music I'll sit and read the lyrics like a bible, a gospel, a sing-a-long"
    ^One of my favorite lines ever. It's so resoundingly true.^


    When you hit rock bottom, you ask yourself "why bother?", but you know you have to keep trying, so you have to look for some reason to keep you going and pushing on.

    I hope you can find your reason when you get there.
