You've taken all my will to
(Exploit my face behind these hands)
And you're far too shallow to
Drown me in your follies
(You won't make it far
This is bigger than who we are)

How could you get this far
With such a bitter plan
Building all these scars?

Just go ahead
Pull us out to sea
Relapse to what you were

Such a commodity for you and me to be lost at sea
You drug me out here but honestly
I can sleep and preach much better now
In the clear, you are not too keen
On your current positions

You're too far out
To swim your way in
You're too far out
To swim your way (x2)

Now that I'm back to where I started
Drifting out against the ocean's speed
These waves will take you farther
Into the deep

And I said that this is the end, the end
(Let's both be honest, this is the end)
Pause, fold, contort, all your friends
They fell short and sold you out

You're too far out
To swim your way in
You're too far out
To swim your way (x2)

When all is said and done
We face the problems we thought would never come
These treacheries, will claim you

I feel your hands inside of me

    General CommentThese guys are awesome, not only on stage but in person.
    Im so glad theyre movin on up, however brief it may end up being,they deserve it.

    This is my favorite song other than the ones with Johnny Craig.
    I can relate to this in so many ways, the last few lines especially.
    Kinda sounds like a friend is going down the wrong path, but is too stubborn or gone to see it even though the friend doing everything they can to help but gets caught up in it just the same and realizes that people make their own decisions and theres nothing you can do but try.
    like he says, in the end we have no choice but to face the problems we thought would never come.
