sinking lyrics – jars of clay

it’s not my problem anymore
you see it never really was
so you can stop ‘caring’ as you call it
and i’ll be fine right here

you see that i can play a pretty convincing role
so i don’t need you, i don’t think i need you

[chorus:]

but you see through my forever lies
and you are not believing
and i see in your forever eyes
that you are forever healing

you can’t hear what i’m not saying
and i can hold out long enough
treading water i keep from sinking
i’m not one for reaching

you see that i can play a pretty convincing role
so i don’t need you, i don’t think i need you

[chorus]

deny myself, deny my heart
deny your hand, deny your help
and you offer me eternity
but why should i buy that?

you see that i can play a pretty convincing role
so i don’t need you, i don’t think i need you

[chorus x2]
