about

Life is a confusing and vast place.
You can navigate it if you have some semblance of common sense.
Some people simply drown.
Sometimes things come to some of us to sustain us without putting in any effort while others constantly struggle.
It's a crapshoot.

lyrics

The waves come crashing down on me.
It's overwhelming how it should be.
All my control washed out to sea.
And all that's left is a shell of me.

It feels like drowning all alone.
But you're all with me, our minds are blown.
Under current, hypnotic drone.
Lost in the ocean and left to roam.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.

Ever feel like you're the only one.
Who knows just what we have become.
Sometimes we're better off leaving.
Than pandering to the deceiving.

The gods are clashing because of me.
All those bad things they come three.
Having to end it just to be free.
Makes the masters all slaves to me.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.

Ever feel like you're the only one.
Who knows just what we have become.
Sometimes we're better off leaving.
Than pandering to the deceiving.

The waves come crashing down on me.
It's overwhelming how it should be.
All my control washed out to sea.
And all that's left is a shell of me.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.
