If I could stop from thinking
Then I might be safe from sinking into this
And if I could stop the doubting
Then I might not be put out by what I miss

Cause there’s always something holding,
Always keeping me from going anywhere
And I am so delirious
And the hope I need’s too furious to care

And I can’t swim this sea
I get pulled under by the waves
That first caught my stubborn gaze
And nothing’s holding me
Keeping me from going down
All I know is I can’t drown

All this over-analyzing,
Oh it’s always patronizing me
I read into every word and pull to pieces what I’ve heard
Until it murders me

And it’s not a pleasant death
To be burdened by the stress of the unknown
And it’s everything I dread, and yet
It’s all inside my head, I ought to let it go
Let it go

Cause I can’t breathe these lies
They’re poison to my hope
Tainting everything I know
And I refuse to die
Like a lamb who’s led astray
I won’t be deceptions prey tonight
