All the trouble

All the death

All the heartbreak

Comes crashing down on my now

With hard crushing waves

Again and again

They pound down

They pound down

How much longer can I stay afloat?

How much pain can one person take?

If I could take the pain of the world I would

Just to keep you from feeling it

I would let the waves carry me away

But I can't

I can't

Does everyone feel like this?

Constantly bruised and battered

It all came crashing down at once

I didn't see it coming

All the harsh cruel reality

All the pain

I am drowning

Who will pull me out?

Who will save me?

They are crushing me

Pulling and sucking me down

Down into the depths of darkness

Cold dead darkness

I want to be free

I don't want to be hurt anymore

I don't want to crushed

Crushed by all the pain

All the sadness

All the heartbreak

If it would do any good I would rip my heart out

I would throw it to the sea

But I can't

I can't

If I could learn how to swim with the waves

To become part of them

To save myself from being crushed

Beaten

To swim with them

To be them

But I can't

I can't

If I could only close my eyes

Go somewhere else

Somewhere without waves

Somewhere far away

Somewhere happy

Away from it all

All the pain

All the death

All the heartbreak

All the darkness

If I could only close my eyes

But I can't

I can't
