A song with about a bazillion different versions.

lyrics

I intended just to wade into the puddle
But my head went ten feet down
No chance of any oxygen
So i just sat there and drowned
Nobody's giving up their life support system
I guess I'll just play to my own tune
Seven hundred particles in my atmosphere
Another time the sun eclipsed the moon

Needless to say I have it under control if I ever need to let it go
And I guess I can brave my way through the rain. Sleet. And snow
Harmless yet harmful to an infant if it were to drink
And yet ever faster do I begin to sink

As the water seeps in through orifices
The choking motions in my throat
Trying to cough up the liquid
Attempts to pull out of the moat
Flailing up and flailing down;; nobody cares
They'd rather just sit there and watch
My hands grasping towards the sky
Can't find in the wall a notch

Needless to say I have no body control so I guess I'll just let it go
And I guess it's not so scary when you know what's in store
Harming my organs but vital to life
The ocean floor is beautiful until you open your eyes.....
