Something got a hold over him.
Drowning in quicksand he reaches

out for a limb
As he fades away....
 
He's going under and he can not swim!
I see him struggling again and again.
And his chances are getting slim,
As he fades away....
 
Dark clouds are looming; it's looking grim.
Don't you question why?  Heaving with a sigh....
I know he didn't get here on a whim,
As he fades away....
 
What happens when you fill up to the brim?
You grow a little cynical trying to reach the pinnacle.
He can't see; his eyes are covered and it's dim
As he fades away....
