Open water
Where’s the shore gone?
How’d I falter?
Open water

Height of the sea
Will bury me
And all I see is
Open water

Open Water

Open water
Where’s the shore gone?
How’d I falter?
Open water

Plight of poor me
No use for screaming here
I’ll drown in
Open water

Open Water

Open water
Where’s the shore gone?
How’d I falter?
Open water

The sea is all
That I can see
I’ll die alone in
Open water

Open water

I know something is lurking in
The depths of murky water
There are ripples and bubbles appearing
Over by the sunken ship

...and bells are ringing in my head
I think I’m done; I think I’m dead
As something pulls my paddling leg under…

Asphyxiate
It’s more than I can take
This briny, salty water in my lungs

...and deeper darker bluish dread
The pressure squeezing on my head
The Kraken’s got the best of me this time

I know something is lurking in
The depths of murky water
There are ripples and bubbles appearing
Over by the sunken ship

...and bells are ringing in my head
I think I’m done; I think I’m dead
As something pulls my paddling leg under…

Asphyxiate
It’s more than I can take
This briny, salty water in my lungs

...and deeper darker bluish dread
The pressure squeezing on my head
The Kraken’s got the best of me this time

Open water
Where’s the shore gone?
How’d I falter?
Open water
