Feat. Erika Sorenson

lyrics

I'm slowly sinking

I'm falling down into a pit of stagnation
I'm a glutton for damnation
and it's getting hard to stay
around where I grew up
it doesn't seem like it's enough
to pull me out of bed each morning
and get me through the day

My conversations resonate in my head
I can't escape from first impressions
or what I should've said
It's hard for me to let it go
when I could've done so well
Instead I'm where I started
Feeling sorry for myself

Am I still sleeping
Am I awake
Am I just dreaming
Or have I changed?

I'm starting to see what I've been told
My whole life and it's making me feel so cold
This place I've grown to call home is just that
and it won't keep its promises
or keep your life on track

I'm slowly sinking

I'm such a flake deciding who to become
am I the one who's got the story
or the one who gets things done
when I look into the mirror I see questions staring back
do I keep pursuing ghosts or is it time now to turn back

Am I still sleeping
Am I awake
Am I just dreaming
Or have I changed?

I'm starting to see what I've been told
My whole life and it's making me feel so cold
This place I've grown to call home is just that
and it won't keep its promises
or keep your life on track

This ocean's swallowing me whole
I can't tread water anymore
I'm ready to get out now
If only I knew how

Am I still sleeping
am I awake
am I just dreaming
or have I changed

I'm starting to see what I've been told
My whole life and it's making me feel so cold
This place I've grown to call home is just that
and it won't keep its promises
it won't keep its promises
