I'm losing myself in the waters that made me.

Please just tell me that I’m real

Because I’m starting to forget the taste of this home

Everything feels like a half-remembered dream

Where the faces all blur and everyone speaks in foreign tongues

And I’m the only one who doesn’t understand

I can feel my lungs moving in a foolish impersonation of breathing

But my blood is still crying for oxygen

I’m longing for answers, for some kind of clue

But every time I open my mouth to ask

I seem to forget the question

The truth is, I think I forgot how to breathe a long time ago

But I’ve been pretending for too many years that it’s become a habit

Someone once told me that it takes twenty-seven days to break a habit

But I don’t know if I have that much time left in me

Am I fading away or just waking up?

If you ever think of looking for me

Find me in flowing, shuddering shades of blue

I’m trying to become the water that I’ve always dreamed of drowning in

So that I might find some sort of life stirring inside me
