sink or swim

i'm restless as sin
sink me in lead restless as sin
i'm covered in sand
untie my hands sinking or swim

i'm stripped to the waist
caught in the wake
my watery grave
i'm up to my neck
out of my depth
sinking or swim

i'm losing my grip
let myself slip sucked to the bottom
the buoyancy's great
swallow the bait
carry my weight back to the surface
i'm aching to swim

my foundation 's sand
built on dry land
sucked to the bottom
the buoyancy's great
carry my weight
swallow the bait back to the surface
i'm aching to swim

i'm restless as sin
sink me in lead restless as sin
i'm out of my head
risking nothing sinking or swim

i'm losing my grip
let myself slip sucked to the bottom
the buoyancy's great
swallow the bait
carry my weight back to the surface
i'm aching to swim

sinking to swim
sinking to swim
