"Drown in You" as written by and Marti Frederickson Christopher A. Daughtry....
There's a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn
Lay it down and lose it all
It's taken me so far beyond the point of no return
Gave all that I had
When hope is gone
(Hope is gone)

Is this real?
Or is it just another crazy dream?
Someday soon will fade away
Feels just like I'm under water and can barely breathe
Dying in the bed that I have made

I don't wanna drown in you
I'm sinking, then I'm torn in two
So when you see me come up for air
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
Don't let me drown in you
(Don't let me drown in you)

City pulls me in closer than I've ever been
There ain't no way I can escape
Without a doubt you know that I would tread the deepest end
Thousand years forever in a day
But I don't wanna drown in you
I'm sinking, then I'm torn in two
So when you see me come up for air
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
(Just save me now)
Don't let me drown in you

Did I bring this on myself?
Can I get out alive?
Yeah, I've given you the best of me
Now you want the rest of me
What's it gonna take to survive?
Yeah

There's a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn...

I don't wanna drown in you
(Drown in you)
I'm sinking, then I'm starting to
(I'm starting to)
So when you see me, come up the river
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
(Just save me now)
Don't let me drown in you
Don't let me drown in you
(Drown in you)
(Just save me now)
Don't let me drown in you
(Drown in you)

    General Commentalrighty seeing as this is a batman arkham city soundtrack song, i believe the song is through batman's eyes

    There�s a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn
    Lay it down and lose it all
    It�s taken me so far beyond the point of no return
    Gave all that I had when hope was gone - this is saying in Gotham you can give everything your all for the place and possible lose your life for it, saving the city has worn batman down and even after he stopped believing he could do it and wanted to give up, he kept fighting.

    Is this real or is it just another crazy dream
    That someday soon we�ll fade away?
    Feels just like I�m under water and can barely breathe
    Dying in the bed that I have made - batman feels things are getting out of hand in Gotham, he doesn't wanna believe what is happening but it has finally happened, he wants to blink and have it just be a dream. Batman is over whelmed and doesn't know what to do but he only has his self to blame he caused all this whether it was letting it get as bad as it is or all starting with him being batman in the first place he is losing control of the fire he started (becoming batman brought out the villians) in his town of gotham.

    I don�t want to drown in you
    I�m sinking and I�m sawed in two
    So when you see me come back around
    Don�t try to hold me down and save me now
    Don�t let me drown in you -batman is telling the city he doesn't wanna lose it all like this, not the way it is heading with all the villians but he is slowly losing everything and he is broken so he has no idea where to go or what to do , he can't find a way to stop this but when the city andthe people) finally see he has found a way good or bad they shouldn't stop him or try to arrest him, don't take him out let him save the city and make up for the mess he has made but also don't let him lose, have the city at his back so he can save it he doesn't wanna lose this fight.

    The city pulls me in closer than I�ve ever been
    There ain�t no way I can escape
    Without a doubt you know that I would tread the deepest dead
    A thousand years, forever and a day - in gotham there is no escape for him it has trapped him , it pulls him in closer becuase he has made a bigger mess than ever and he can't turn his back on gotham so there is no escape he has to make things right. everyone knows that batman will not stop and he is saying he will not rest as long as he is alive until he saves the city from the disaster he caused.

    Did I bring this on myself?
    Can I get out alive?
    Yeah, I�ve given you the best of me
    Now you want the rest of me
    What�s it gonna take to survive? - batman is question himself asking did he do this and can he make it all better or will he die trying. Then he says ive given my all to this city from every time i have saved it, he has put his all into it and it is taken all he has to protect it but the city is now asking for more since every villan in arkham has escaped and taken over the city, its gonna take more than he has ever given.And he is asking what is it gonna take to make it through all this and save the place he onced called home.

    There�s a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn - and again there is a place meaning there is always somewhere and somehow where you can do something great and watch it all turn to ash right before your eyes.
