I broke my neck to keep my chin up
There's an open wound and no grounding
Days like these will make me fed up
It all feels like a senseless affliction

And you say you'll be there
But you're separated by a barrier
Your words get drowned out
Your mouth makes hollow sounds
There's no truth behind your means

Upon my shoulders
I will place a weight too heavy to bear
It's an item no one else can consider
Can even consider to wear
In proving my strongest
I lost my endurance
In proving my strongest
I lost it

And you say you'll be there
But you're separated by a barrier
Your words get drowned out
Your mouth makes hollow sounds
There's no truth behind your means
And you say, "I'm there"
Say, "I'm as close as your prayers"
But you can't let me in
Even though you see I'm sinking
I guess I'll keep my chin up to slow the drowning
I'm just slowly drowning

And you say you'll be there
Go be a lifesaver
Don't the salt blind you
If you can hold out
Fill your lungs up to shout
I'm not drowning
