Don't worry, it's not literally about drowning. More of the feeling i'm sure some of you have had when life got too overwhelming....no, not suicidal or anything like that. Originally called drowning, but someone already had that title.........grrr.

Buried in the silence; submissed in all the rage
Doubt and fear have twisted and locked me in this cage
The questions in my dreams are haunting me
Clouding my vision 'till Ino longer see
I look into the distance to see the smallest shimmer
I thought it was salvation, but the light is growing dimmer
Alone in the dark; my body feeding on its own decay
All signs of life are slipping away
I don't know who I am anymore; I can't think for myself
I am the glass doll staring at you from the shelf
And I can't save myself or be strong for you
I don't even know how I'm going to pull through
So stop patronizing me because I'm tired of listening
I don't believe you and I'm tired of pretending
Dreams are diminishing and hope is fleeing
So tell me, what good is believing
I tried too hard; I tried too long
Now all that's left is this empty song
My heavy soul with my mind weaves
Waiting to die like the autumn leaves
It's getting harder to breath now
Trying to escape with no idea how
A few whispered words into the unreleanting sea
I no longer want you to rescue me
