lyrics

Stepping into the cold waves
Feeling them lap at your feet
Numb to the rising tide
You don't even know what it means

Inching your way from the shore
Dead set on something beyond your reach
Pushing against common sense
As the water is rising

You feel nothing and hear only what you want you hear
You fear nothing beyond the idea that you will fail

(Step off) the pedestal you made of anger
(Lay down) the hatchet that you bear there's no-one here
(To fight) for dominance or your survival
(Beware) this force that drags you in, deep underneath your skin

The line you cross is never drawn in the sand
But the one deep inside
A sheet of glass that shatters by your own hand
Leaving the scars of regret

So this is the path that you crave
Your pale behemoth to conquer
Your limbs to lose, your vessel to sink

A creature you built with the flesh
And bones you stole from hallowed ground
A monster to bleed for your fear and greed

The water is up to your chest
Swirling around your limbs
You're pushing against the weight
Not understanding why it pushes back

So fight on soldier
Until the surface is over your head
Will you kick your feet and gasp for breath
For the river runs deep

So this is the path that you crave
Your pale behemoth to conquer

(Step off) the pedestal you made of anger
(Lay down) the hatchet that you bear there's no-one here
(To fight) for dominance or your survival
(Beware) this force that drags you in, deep underneath

(Step off) the pedestal you made of anger
(Lay down) the hatchet that you bear there's no-one here
(To fight) for dominance or your survival
(Beware) this force that drags you in, deep underneath your skin
