Now I will tell you what I've done for you
Fifty thousand tears I've cried
Screaming deceiving and bleeding for you
And you still won't hear me

Don't want your hand this time I'll save myself
Maybe I'll wake up for once
Not tormented daily defeated by you
Just when i thought i'd reached the bottom
I...die again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowing in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through
(I'm) I'm going under

Blurring and stirring the truth and the lies
So I don't know what's real
(so I don't know what's real)
(so I don't know what's real) and what's not
Always confusing the thoughts in my head
So I can't trust myself anymore

I... die again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowing in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through
(I'm) I'm

So go on and scream
Scream at me I'm so far away
I won't be broken again
I've got to breathe
I can't keep going under

(Instrumental)

I...die again

I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowing in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through
(I'm) I'm going under

Going under
I'm going under

    My Interpretationthis song is about a woman feeling lost in her relationship. She is with an abusive partner, who makes her believe all her thoughts and feelings are wrong. He is secretive and when she tries to bring problems up, he will yell at her and make her question herself. Making it impossible to trust herself and stay strong enough on her own, that's why she has to break through an endless cycle of mental torture and captivity. She has to save herself and stop leaning on him, for he's the reason she is where she is. She has to escape from the shadows of him to regain herself.
