"Drowning"

DROWNING Lyrics by Only Crime
I know this time is real.
Fashion what I feel.
I've seen this face before, and now it all comes back.
Too cynical to watch it fall.
Dismiss it all as logical.
Can't find a way to wash it down.
Are we too frail to see our vague transparencies?
Keep it all alive, one more strike upon this life.
Just let the sun shine away.
Sincerity betrays the final apathy.

Blind to vacancies that bring us to our knees.
Fail to find respect but this is what we get.
Defined by effigies, familiar tendencies to wash the honesty away.
Are we too frail to see our vague transparencies?
Keep it all alive, one more strike upon this life.
Just let the sun shine away.
Sincerity betrays the final apathy.

See it unfold, lies bought an sold.
These wear the old ways down.
Staggered in fate, drowning too late.
Left for the cold days now.
Liars in chains, debts we've arranged, circling behind these walls.
Patience we hide, still burning inside, tired and betrayed once more.
Stark open eyes, desperate lies, counting their failed ways home.
Lost, without time, reason declines.
Swallowed by fear once more.
