TREADING WATER

I see the way you look at me
Shines off your teeth with every grin
I’m a man with feet buried into the sand 
From ankles down I can’t stomach defeat

I’m onto you, baby you’re onto me
This’ll go on for as far as I see
I’m trapped in my own highs and lies
I still can’t seem to say goodbye 

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

Crawling on your knees
Fighting for your sleep
You can’t blind the master thief
Loving me’s like treading water, so try a little bit harder

Even the world cannot feed my disease 
Well It’s never enough, it’s never enough, enough for me
So why must we plead?

I don’t really wanna live this way 
You may think that I’m insane
Smile through all the pain I put you through

Just pretend I’m your wildest dream come true

I’m onto you, baby you’re onto me
Loving me’s a lobotomy
Depression, aggression, and user discretion
It’ll be your tears that are gonna be raining 
Down your cheeks
You need me
Soon you’ll be

Crawling on your knees
Fighting for your sleep
You can’t blind the master thief
Loving me’s like treading water, so try a little bit harder

Even the world cannot feed my disease 
Well It’s never enough, it’s never enough, enough for me
So why must we plead?

I’m the thief, oh!

Swallow your pride
And I’ll swallow mine
Swallow your pride
Swallow your pride


And I will swallow mine
And I will swallow mine
