I woke up in a strangers bed
With pins and needles in my head
And the clock ticking off the wall
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah

I don't even know myself
I wish I could be someone else
But I don't have a clue at all
Oh, yeah

I'm sinking
You're wading
I'm thinking something's gotta give

Oh!
Wake me up
Say enough is enough
I'm dying to live
Something's gotta give

Oh!
Pull me out
Of this sinking town
I'm dying to live
Something's gotta give

Maybe I'm a fucking waste
Filling up the empty space
I've been here way too long
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah

I'm feeling like a nervous wreck
Living on my last paycheck
I'm a cliché in a song
And everybody's singing along

I'm sinking
You're wading
I'm thinking something's gotta give

Oh!
Wake me up
Say enough is enough
I'm dying to live
Something's gotta give

Oh!
Pull me out
Of this sinking town
I'm dying to live
Something's gotta give

Someone please come pull me out
From the shadow of my doubt
Wake me up
I'm falling

Oh!
Wake me up
Say enough is enough
I'm dying to live
Something's gotta give

Oh!
Pull me out
Of this sinking town
I'm dying to live (dying to live)
Something's gotta give

I'm sinking (I'm sinking)
You're wading (you're wading)
I'm thinking something's gotta give

Oh!
Pull me out
Of this sinking town
I'm dying to live
(dying to live)
Something's gotta give

    General CommentThis song is about Alex's anxiety problems. He's realizing that he's sinking and everything is falling apart because of his anxiety and is asking for someone to "pull him out" of it. The term 'somethings gotta give' means that after several similar events are happening, a different outcome is bound to happen sooner or later. So in a way, he's saying after struggling so many times with his anxiety, something good is going to happen at some point.
