I'm drowning but I'll try to

Keep my head above the water

Just a little longer

I can't breathe but I can do this-

I need to

The currents drag me down, the tides swallow me whole

The sirens laugh at my demise

Keep my head above the water

Keep from going under

...it only ever is a little bit longer.
