Here comes the water.
All i knew and all i believed
Are crumbling images
That no longer comfort me.
I scramble to reach higher ground
Some order and sanity
Or something to comfort me.
So i take what is mine and hold what is mine
Suffocate what is mine and bury what's mine.
Soon the water will come
And claim what is mine.
I must leave it behind
And climb to a new place now.
This ground is not the rock i thought it to be.
Thought i was high, and free.
I thought i was there
I was wrong.
This changes everything.
The water is rising up on me.
Thought the sun would come deliver me,
But the truth has come to punish me instead.
The ground is breaking down right under me.
Cleanse and purge me
In the water.
