Breathing Underwater

It’s the silence makes you crazy
Find the action, mine the thrill
I know you will
Amusing smiles, familiar faces
The perfect fiction the easy pill
I know you will, ‘cause I know you;

Each tick of your heartbeat takes you further from the point
You make it easy on yourself

Life could be so wonderful like loving in the everafter,
Breathing underwater
Life should be so wonderful
Like moving in the up and outward,
Breathing underwater

And you live your time as strangers
To yourselves, your aching souls,
The empty holes
Drink to forget you just remember
You have debts no honest man could ever get
