You can't keep your head buried in the sand forever
Even the sun can't reach you there
You're going to have to be human eventually
And feel more than your own despair

You take everything in your life for granted
Even the air you breathe
You'd rather cloud your mind with all these distractions
Fictional dreams of what you'll someday be

You're going to sink like a stone
If you can't swim on your own
Keeping your head above the water won't last long

These lies they burn my throat, the voice isn't mine
Telling them is like a slow poison
You swallow these addictions like a pill
What you don't have to feel

Your mother taught you how to run away
And your father showed you how to live for today
The consequences won't show until
The party's over

You're going to sink like a stone
If you can't swim on your own
Keeping your head above the water won't last long

I thought I could believe you
But I don't
I thought I could trust you
But the evidence says no
You should know better
You should know better by now

Take a breath
Like it may be you last
And pray that someday all of this will pass
