I can see the me
that everyone can see.
They see the me that
I will never be.
I'm not so strong,
or willing to be weak.
I feel misplaced and sometimes obsolete.

I can't swim,
but I won't drown.
Won't drown.
Won't drown.

I'm standing in the pouring rain.
But I am dry,
and without shame.
I'm soaked in something never found...
well I guess I still could drown.

I don't like the mirror
that they put in my room.
I stand, and stare,
but all I see is you
in silent space.
I hear what they won't speak.
I give so much that he may never see.

I can't swim,
but I won't drown.
Won't drown.
Won't drown.

I'm standing in the pouring rain,
but I am dry,
and without shame.
I'm soaked in something never found...
well I guess I still could drown.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who isn't very happy with the person they are. they put on a facade for everyone else and pretend to be someone they aren't, and yet they can't live up to everyone's expectations.
