You hold your every breath
but life is for the living,
in the water

You feel that you should run,
but where are you to hide
in the water.

Against the tide we struggle
with the skin we're in,
the skin we're in

Against the tide we struggle
to keep our heads above the deep
and our hearts above the lie.

You vow your life and blood
but this is not our home
in the water

Our hope here's never found
just try and keep your way
in the water.

With who we are today
could never make amends for what we've done
tainted blood

His eyes are full of love
forgive them
release them.

    General CommentI discovered this song while playing The Walking Dead S2 video game. What a gem of a song. If you play the game you will see how the lyrics reflect the storyline of the game. After killing zombies in a bloodbath for an hour it was a nice to discover this mellow tune.
