You were drowning in the saline sea;
pugnacious you, kicking with all your might.
But even you knew, you’d never be free.

Your corrupted mind, covered in debris.
Your ambivalent heart; out of your sight.
You were drowning in the saline sea;

Capsized self-respect you could not foresee.
Tangled in lies, you tried to find the light,
but even you knew, you’d never be free.

The moon climbs high, like branches of a tree;
your deepest sorrows fester in the night—
you were drowning in the saline sea;

A life of deceit, free of any glee.
So you threw up your fists, ready to fight,
but even you knew, you’d never be free.

Broken from guilt, you decided to flee,
and while whispering her one last goodnight,
you were drowning in the saline sea;
but even you knew, you’d never be free.
