"Sinking" as written by Dan Haseltine, Charlie Lowell, Stephen Daniel Mason and Matt Odmark....
It's not my problem anymore
You see it never really was
So you can stop caring as you call it
And I'll be fine right here

You see that I can play
A pretty convincing role
So I don't need you
I don't think I need you

[Chorus]
But you see through my forever lies
And you are not believing
And I see in your forever eyes
And you are forever healing

You can't hear what I'm not saying
And I can hold out long enough
Treading water I keep from sinking
I'm not one for reaching

You see that I can play
A pretty convincing role
So I don't need you
I don't think I need you

[Chorus]

You see that I can play
A pretty convincing role
So I don't need you
I don't think I need you

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentVery simple meaning...we constantly go astray, Jesus constantly calls us back...

    The bridge before the piano solo...

    Deny myself, deny my heart
    Deny your hand, deny your help
    and you offer me eternity
    but why should I buy that?

    That's the entire key to the song right there...classic stuff
