(lit) ocean

lyrics

if i was lost in the ocean, would you know where to find me?
lifeless
sent floating
fell short of ship.

the undertow
swept
drowning in choices that i make.
yet i see your reflection
still hiding behind my face.

the sun went down
started dreaming of dark things
and i woke up just to lie in bed
and i lie to myself

i lie to myself.

well, i've been biting my tongue in my sleep, and i can tell by the cuts when i wake up. i bled out the words that i lack the courage to say, though i keep telling myself, there's no need to be afraid.
and i've been scratching my face in my sleep, and i can tell by the cuts when i wake up. i claw off the mask(s) that i like to wear day-to-day to show you and everyone else that, "i'm not afraid"
but, it's not my fault
i didn't ask to be here. and neither did you, just like the rest of us. so, before we move on any further,
can we please forgive each other?

we're all lost in the ocean.

well, if i was lost in the ocean, then you've already saved me.
drowning with my arm stretched out
patiently waiting..

yeah, i've been lost in the ocean, but
you've already saved me.
drowning with my arm stretched out
patiently waiting..
