I am a sorry man
trapped between who I am
and who I could be
The man you want to see
The man within your dreams
But I am not your fantasy

There's a secret I hold secure
and it's getting darker by the hour
And now there's not enough man left in me
to fulfill any of your dreams

I'm breaking down
My mind crumbles to the ground
in pieces too small to see
that you did this to me
I don't want you to see what I am
I am a drowning man

I don't feel human
My soul's been shattered
and I'm feeling battered
Because deep in my heart
there is a place that bleeds
where your name is engraved
and only you can see

All reality drains out
and I blink back into place
Just now realizing
exactly what this means

I'm breaking down
My soul shattered on the ground
in pieces too small to see
that you did this to me
I don't want you to know what I am
I am a drowning man

I need to wash my hands
I'm going to feel your pain
I hear your siren call
I see your eyes staring back at me

I'm breaking down
My life lies dead on the ground
in pieces too small to see
that you did this to me
I don't want you to become what I am
I am a drowning man
