in silent seas we drown lyrics – silverstein

i’m running just like the wind, a moving current. feel it pushing faster, it’s pushing faster. i’m hiding you like a sin, a lonely liar. see you taking after, taking after me. i’ve come so far against these odds. been on my back for way too long. but now i realize it’s not one problem. there’s countless ways i won’t try to solve them. i’m caving in like a mine, i’m under pressure. feel it taking over, it’s taking over. i’m living life like a lie, i’m losing judgement. shoulders growing colder, i’m growing colder. and i’ve broken down so many walls i never thought i’d have to climb them now. it used to be so fun, i used to dream in light. but now i work in dark i feel so worn and trite. i’m telling all my friends i love the highs and lows. but the truth is that i’d rather stay home alone. i’m making sure there’s a path to make it harder for me. and make it harder to quit, make it impossible. you won’t believe what i’m capable of. buried bodies, this labor of my love. i silenced everyone. i’ve silenced all my critics, silenced them all except myself. i silenced everyone, silenced the all except myself. because i’ve come this far, i won’t back down. i’ve struck a chord inside myself and found that there’s no one else who can solve my problems. i can’t admit to you that i regret them. and when i’m heading home, i wonder where to go because i’m honestly afraid i might die alone. i’m making sure there’s a path to make it harder for me. and to make it harder to quit, make it impossible. you won’t believe what i’m capable of.
