lyrics

I heard the Hudson River screaming
When I finally hit the ground
I count the beats of my own heart
Because no one else will make a sound
I got to get out of here
It turns out I can’t stand it after all
While you’re trying to tear me down
And lift yourself above me as I fall

Don’t say hold steady now
The act is tired, my patience’s growing old
But here comes that wave again
The one that sweeps right through
And swallows me whole
Go speak mind and call me a loner
Just know someday you’ll say I showed you
Capsized, I’m turning over
I’ll find my great escape

I’d try to run but it’s not worth it
So I just tread and hold this in
How hard it is to keep my temper
And water underneath my chin
You’ll swear it’s obvious
Why people cut my throat and I should see
Then I’m sure I’ll figure out the reasons
For all these holes you’ve cut in me

And here comes that wave again
To sweep right through
And swallow me whole
Go speak mind and call me a loner
Just know someday you’ll say I showed you
Capsized, I’m turning over
I’ll find my great escape

I can’t help feel that I’m still sinking
Though I should feel worlds apart
It’s no surrender ‘til the end
Or when this wave comes in
And swallows me whole
Go speak mind and call me a loner
Just know someday you’ll say I showed you
Capsized, I’m turning over
I’ll find my great escape
