Better Than Sinking

Better Than Sinking

Verse One, Part One
I've had the taste of salty ocean spray in my mouth for far too long
When will this end
For ages, I've been listening with "repeat one" to the exact same song
When will this end 

Verse One, Part Two
I've been caught inside myself
I've been trapped in the same rut
But I'm not giving up

Chorus
Somedays are days fighting for what you've got
Instead of gaining new ground
Somedays are defending your heart's healing
Instead of new emotions being found
Somedays are days of battling the same old lies
Instead of developing new thinking
Somedays are of only keeping your head above the waves
'Cause treading water is better than sinking

Verse Two, Part One
The same old demons are coming back to me, once more
When will this end
Nothing new's been earned, nothing's been added to my score
When will this end

Verse Two, Part Two
Though  I've been caught inside myself
And though I've been trapped in the same rut
I'm not giving up

Chorus
Somedays are days fighting for what you've got
Instead of gaining new ground
Somedays are defending your heart's healing
Instead of new emotions being found
Somedays are days of battling the same old lies
Instead of developing new thinking
Somedays are of only keeping your head above the waves
'Cause treading water is better than sinking

The End
