Verse 1

Surrender, surrender,

Fade away from my mind,

Don't you dare leave behind

That bright smile on my face

That gives way to darkness.

I see you everywhere, it drives me insane.

But I won't let you do this to me again.

Verse 2

Surrender, surrender,

It's time to say goodbye,

Let go of all your lies

That haunt me in my sleep,

That destroy my firm grip

On myself and let all the emotions in.

I can't breathe, you're carboxyhaemoglobin.

Chorus

We've been over

Since the dawn of time,

You were never mine,

And I will not keep drowning in the desert you built for me!

Verse 3

Surrender, surrender,

I'm done with self-pity,

Faced my reality,

And I'm bleeding new hope

Through the noose on your rope.

The ruthless strangulation found me my voice.

And now I can hear it above your shrill noise.

Chorus

We've been over

Since the dawn of time,

You were never mine,

Now I know it was all make believe,

Give or take, turns out I had to give,

And I will not keep drowning in the desert

Bridge

Where my soul is locked inside a mirage and

I've chased it and led myself into enemy land.

Surrender? Never!

Why would you ever

Think I will keep drowning in the desert you built for me?

Chorus

We've been over

Since the dawn of time,

You were never mine,

And I will not keep drowning in the desert,

I know it in my heart

That we've been over

Since the dawn of time,

You were never mine,

Now I know it was all make believe,

Give or take, turns out I had to give,

And I will not keep drowning in the desert you built for me!
