Drown, drown, drown in pain
As it floats out of my own soul;
Deep, deep, deep down into the earth it goes
As it pours out my mouth as overflows.
Deep, deep, deep my fingers dig the ground
As I try burying the hurt;
Choke, choke, choke with the dirt, myself can’t breathe
As too deep down I go, I go, I go.
