Do you ever feel like you're drowning
In the water no one can see?
(Slowly rising up)
Choking on my own thoughts,
They're killing me. 
 
I can't swim and I can't fight,
I can't run away and hide. 
The memories slip between my fingers 
But the feelings linger on. 
My brain is attacking me with nothingness,
And I don't want to leave this peaceful calm. 
 
Do you ever feel like you're drowning
In the water no one can see?
(Slowly rising up)
Choking on my own thoughts,
They're killing me. 
 
I can laugh and I can cry but
Beneath it all I still want to die 
Sometimes I try to fight, 
I squirm and shriek and batter my fists
Then I crash and burn, rest my head
On my knees and disappear. 
 
Do you ever feel like you're drowning
In the water no one can see?
(Slowly rising up)
Choking on my own thoughts,
They're killing me. 
 
My chest tightens, my eyes prickle with unshed tears,
I take a deep breath and the mask is back. 
I giggle and grin
And no one knows. 
I toss out a few jokes while my heart screams "Die!"
 
Do you ever feel like you're drowning
In the water no one can see?
(Slowly rising up)
Choking on my own thoughts,
They're killing me. 
 
Do you ever feel trapped
In a body you can't change;
Chained to a person you're not?
They drag you down to the bottom of a lake and leave you there
Hiding from all until even you don't know who you are anymore. 
 
[whispered]
(That's me. I died a long time ago but my heart's still beating while I'm drowning....drowning....gone.)
