Late last night I could have sworn you were all of my exes lying next to me
It was my moment to give back the pain I had resurrected joyously
Could I be that spiteful, could I bear the weight of rage holy reborn
For a fictional victory seeing all of you drowning in a world of scorn

Could I, could I
Could I hold your head underwater, It wouldn't be tough
Turn my back and ignore you, just enough
With one hand down and one hand waved
My next night of conquest that day

I've been biting my tongue for years and the blood no longer bothers me
Secretly holding my joy prisoner but I'd rather call it watching TV

Locked in a cage of my own creation lined with haunting imagery
It's not my job to convince you the illusions are real enough to me

Could I, could I
Could I hold myself underwater, it wouldn't be tough
Turn my back and ignore my joy, just enough
With one hand down and one hand waved
My next perfect distraction that day

But I've got to learn to let go
Save myself, free my soul
I've got to learn to let go
Sometimes the rage has such a hold over me
I can hardly breathe

Multitasking masters suppressing every hope
While wishing them to be set free
(Could I, could I, could I, could I)
Running their race backwards
Complaining over the only view they let themselves see
(It wouldn't be that tough)
Illness and anger is all around us
But we're taught early to acknowledge and then ignore
To acknowledge and then ignore
We wonder why history repeats itself
When we're obsessed with staring at the floor
Obsessed with staring at the floor

We can hold our lives underwater, it's not that tough
Turn our back and ignore our purpose just enough
With one hand down and one hand waves
Framing the illusion of life lived another day
Framing the illusion of life lived another day

But I've got to learn to let go
Save myself, free my soul
I've got to learn to let go
Sometimes the word has such a hold over me
That I can hardly, hardly be

(Learn to let go)
But I've got to learn to let go
(Learn to let go [x4])
