I will float like fishes upside down
I will float like children when they're trying not to drown
I will sink with rocks tied to my legs
I will sink down to the bottom 'til I'm pulled away

And I won't come back
No, I won't come back

I will make a run out into the dark
I will make a run for it until I'm out of breath
I've been having trouble opening up
I've been having trouble and I can't say I'm doing everything I can

No, I won't come back
And I won't come back
No, I won't come back
Yeah, I can't come back

I need to address my habits, I guess
I owe it to you to explain them
I don't have a face I can face people with
And I don't want people to hear me
I do my best to hide in assumptions
I crouch down so they can't see me
I don't know how to be myself
I guess I should be content with this

Oh, I know I'm not alone
I know that's just the busy tone
I'm gonna hang up the phone
I'm gonna hang up there, I'm gonna hang from way up there
Oh-ooh-oh, oh-ooh-oh
From way up there
