Looking around I never thought I’d see the world like this

Had to re-ask myself where life begins and ends

The waves beneath me roll they never stay the same

Try to swim to shore but it’s drowning me


The days all melt away

The sun rays cease to shine

This journey has left me in a blur


I’m left to trust the winds

Their course is never clear

When will I get to live again


The water’s clear at times to see ohhh

The life down on the ocean floor


The days as black as coal

And I can’t swim no more
