Here
Nights are foggy and weird
Everyone I trusted disappears
Breathing life into my deepest fears

Take
Now there's nothing to take
Now you're haunted by your worst mistakes
Watch me sinking underneath the waves

I don't wanna drink about it
(Stare it down)
Drowning out at 3 AM
(No way out)
Water's cold, my mind is clouded
(And then I woke up choking)
How did I get here again?
(Too much, too much to take)

Days
I've been like this for days
Hiding underneath the darkest waves
I've been praying for the tide to change

Head
Is this all in my head?
Running over every word I said
When they finally found my note, it read

If you need me
I'll be lying here at the bottom of the ocean
If you need me
I'll be right here

Air
Leave it up in the air
'Cause the people on the ground don't care
They don't notice, but it's everywhere

Chase
Now there's nothing to chase
Every day I feel so out of place
Let me wash away without a trace

I don't wanna drink about it
(Stare it down)
Drowning out at 3 AM
(No way out)
Water's cold, my mind is clouded
(And then I woke up choking)
How did I get here again?
(Too much, too much to take)

Days
I've been like this for days
Hiding underneath the darkest waves
I've been praying for the tide to change

Head
Is this all in my head?
Running over every word I said
When they finally found my note, it read

If you need me
I'll be lying here at the bottom of the ocean
If you need me
I'll be right here

I'm out here in the deep end
I'm lower than I've ever been
(I burn it down, it turns to smoke)
And when I see the morning
It's colder than it's ever been
(My bloodshot eyes see through the smoke)

Days
I've been like this for days
Hiding underneath the darkest waves
I've been praying for the tide to change

Head
Is this all in my head?
Running over every word I said
When they finally found my note, it read

If you need me
I'll be lying here at the bottom of the ocean
If you need me
I'll be right here
