Let the Ocean Take Me Lyrics

Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Pittsburgh
I've been searching for an exit, but I'm lost inside my head;
Where I spend every waking moment wishing I was dead.
For a few minutes get me away from here,
For a few minutes (wipe away) wipe away my tears.
For I am lost right now as the ocean deep;
I am low my friend and how my heart does sink.
Yeah I am lost right now as the ocean deep;
I am low my friend and how my heart does sink.

It's like there's cancer in my blood,
It's like there's water in my lungs,
And I can't take another step,
Please tell me I am not undone.
It's like there's fire in my skin
And I'm drowning from within -
I can't take another breath,
Please tell me I am not undone.

I've been searching for an exit but I'm lost inside my head;
Where I spend every waking moment wishing this would end.
I can't take another step, I cannot live inside my mind,
I can't face another day, I am so fucking tired.
For I am lost right now as the ocean deep,
I am low my friend and how my heart does sink.
Yeah I am lost right now as the ocean deep,
I am low my friend and how my heart does sink.

It's like there's cancer in my blood,
It's like there's water in my lungs
And I can't take another step -
Please tell me I am not undone.
It's like there's fire in my skin
And I'm drowning from within.
I can't take another breath -
Please tell me I am not undone.

I've been searching for an exit but I'm lost inside my head;
Where I spend every waking moment, wishing I was dead.
I'll take another step for you -
I'll shed my tears until I drown, or until I am underground.
I'll take another breath for you...
Will you still be there when I'm home, out from the great unknown?

[2x]
It's like there's cancer in my blood,
It's like there's water in my lungs,
And I can't take another step -
Please tell me I am not undone.
It's like there's fire in my skin
And I'm drowning from within.
I can't take another breath -
Please tell me I am not undone.
2. Lost & Fading
So young, heartbroken, daydreaming, lost focus.
Weaker than you've ever been,
Counting on a fading dream.
The ocean gleaming emerald green,
The saddest thing you've ever seen.
Your feet stuck in the sinking sand,
Your mind is reeling,shaky hands.
Tears are streaming, sorrow calls,
With no one there to break your fall.

I'm lost and fading, life ain't great.
My heart is breaking and life won't wait.
There's no one there, no one around,
There's not a soul and not a sound.

So fucking young, heartbroken, daydreaming, lost focus.
A weary soul, no truth to find,
They were so lost where was your goodbye?
Your feet stuck in the sinking sand,
Your mind is reeling, shaky hands.
Tears are streaming, sorrow calls,
With no one there to break your fall.

I'm lost and fading, life ain't great.
My heart is breaking and life won't wait.
There's no one there, no one around,
There's not a soul and not a sound.

You've searched your soul for far too long,
Your friend was lost, you carry on.
You bear the burden of sorrow's past,
But you were built, you were built to fucking last.
You were built to last.
I'm fading fast, out in the cold unknown,
All sorrow here, so far from home.
So far from home.

I'm lost and fading, life ain't great.
My heart is breaking and life won't wait.
There's no one there, no one around,
There's not a soul and not a sound.
No one around and not a sound.
3. Don't Lean On Me
Let the ocean take me...

You've gotta know kid that it ain't easy.
To take on all of your grieving, yeah you gotta believe me.

[Chorus:]
Well don't lean on me 'cause I am falling, please don't fall with me.
I really need you here, yeah I need you so don't leave.
And don't count on me 'cause I am drowning, please don't drown with me.
Just hold me in your heart, let the ocean take me.

And you think I don't read every message that you send?
You think I turn a blind eye, you think I'm just like them?
It breaks my heart, all these stories, brings me to tears all this grief;
And I feel so fucking helpless when I can't be your relief.

[Chorus:]
Well don't lean on me 'cause I am falling, please don't fall with me.
I really need you here, yeah I need you so don't leave.
And don't count on me 'cause I am drowning, please don't drown with me.
Just hold me in your heart, let the ocean take me.

There is hope in my eyes, there is hope in these words.
And there are far too many reasons for you to stay here on this earth. Stay with me.

[Chorus:]
Well don't lean on me 'cause I am falling, please don't fall with me.
I really need you here, yeah I need you so don't leave.
And don't count on me 'cause I am drowning,
Please don't drown with me. Just hold me in your heart,
Let the ocean take me. (oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh) Yeah.
Let the ocean take me. (oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh) Yeah.
Let the ocean take me
4. The Weigh Down
Weigh down
Weigh down on the way down

I've lived behind a mask
So long so few know who I am
They know other sides of me
That hide behind a haunted man

Though my hands are made of stone
And I break everything I see
They save me from myself
And they stand by me

Weighed down on the way down
I need someone to take my hand
It feels like I can't breathe
And I might drown on the way down
I'm sick of all the come downs
Don't tell me that there's nothing wrong
I'm weighed down, weighed down

I'll fight fatigue, I'll fight for you
For everything that we've been through
I'll take your hand, I'll carry on
I've been weighed down for far too long

Though my hands are made of stone
And I break everything I see
They save me from myself
And they stand by me, stand by me

Weighed down on the way down
I need someone to take my hand
It feels like I can't breathe
And I might drown on the way down
I'm sick of all the come downs
Don't tell me that there's nothing wrong
I'm weighed down, weighed down

I won't be weighed down
There's too much resting on this
Never be weighed down
I'll fucking stand here instead

Weigh down on the way down
I need someone to take my hand
It feels like I can't breathe
And I might drown on the way down
I'm sick of all the come downs
Don't tell me that there's nothing wrong

I weigh down on the way down
I need someone to take my hand
It feels like I can't breathe
And I might drown on the way down
I'm sick of all the come downs
Don't tell me that there's nothing wrong
I'm weighed down, weighed down
5. Never Alone
We struggle to our feet
We all yearn to be free
We fight and we're weak
We all come out and grieve

This goddamn life is our disease
But we can't always fucking win
We can always turn the tide
We can all stand up and sing 'never alone'

We fight together, not alone
No matter where our bodies roam
This place is now what we call home

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts

Listen, always...
We'll be drowning in our grave
Are we can't stand for ourselves
We have to stay afloat
(We struggle to breathe)

With the word that we try to believe
When I lost my home and find my way home
We can always turn the tide
And we get lost and not be blind, never alone

We fight together, not alone
No matter where our bodies roam
(This place is not away from home)
We are never, ever alone

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts

We are not lost here together
We are not lost anymore
We'll turn the tide, we'll calm the storm
We are ready for war [3x]
We are not lost here together
We are not lost anymore

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts

Never alone, never apart
We found each other in the dark
Shed our tears and fight our fears
We are one, the lonely hearts
6. Death's Hand
I held death's hand this evening

Can't keep my heart from beating
Can't keep my throat from screaming
There has to be another way for me to keep on living

I held death's hand this evening
Closed my eyes now I'm dreaming
I promise I won't leave here
Don't let me die I'm fucking screaming

'Cause I've got more life left to live (got some promises to keep)
To all the hearts that carried me (up from the ocean deep)
I've had to do some searching to understand our reasons
For every selfish feeling (I held death's hand this evening)

Now my lungs are failing
And my heart is fading
My mind is taking me
So far away I'm dreaming
For every selfish reason
I kept the bottles rolling
I poured my heart out
To stop you from leaving

I held death's hand this evening
Closed my eyes now I'm dreaming
I promise I won't leave here
Don't let me die I'm fucking screaming

'Cause I've got more life left to live (got some promises to keep)
To all the hearts that carried me (up from the ocean deep)
I've had to do some searching to understand our reasons
For every selfish feeling (I held death's hand this evening)

[2x]
You're the ones that kept me going
I owe you this much
You gave me the strength to say,
"Hey, Death, get fucked!"

Now my lungs are failing
And my heart is fading
My mind is taking me
So far away I'm dreaming
Now my lungs are failing
And my heart is fading
My mind is taking me...
7. FML
There are parts of me that have been lost at sea, I feel like I'm sinking into eternity.
Walk with my head hung low, in calamity, with my arms outstretched, for someone to save me.

I am a sinking ship, I am the anchors deep, set to the ocean floor in an eternal sleep.
My heart is heavy stone, my body brittle bones, my mind an endless storm out in the cold unknown.
Cause I've got to find my light again, my heart is beating fast when will this ever end?
Can I find my way back home again?
This road I travel on, it never seems to end.

I ain't a hollow shell no more, I've left the ocean floor - I've left the ocean floor.
My heart's a heavy hitter now.
My lungs they're screaming out, my heart's a heavy hitter now.

I am a sinking ship, I am the anchors deep, set to the ocean floor in an eternal sleep.
My heart is heavy stone, my body brittle bones.
My mind an endless storm in the cold unknown.
'Cause I've got to find my light again, my heart is beating fast when will this ever end?
Can I find my way back home again?
This road I travel on it never seems to end.

And once again you came back, and you rescued me, and I promise you that, I promise that I'm out.
I promise you that I'm out.
My heart's a heavy hitter now.
My fists are firmly clenched again and this is thanks to you my friend...

'Cause I've got to find my light again, my heart is beating fast when will this ever end?
Can I find my way back home again?
This road I travel on it never seems to end.
8. My Father's Son
I am my father's son
I am my father's mistakes
I'm easily undone
And I'm no stranger to rage
I am no stranger to rage

I am no stranger to rage

I felt the power of the bottles.
Killed myself just to escape
I am my father's son
I am my father's mistakes

And I'm ashamed of myself
I just want out of this place
This fucking hell I've created
I can't seem to escape

I have to learn from myself
The fastest way to my death
So I could follow his footsteps
To my hospital bed

All my life I have been trying to understand myself
It seems like my own reflection is just somebody else
It's taken years to know my father courses through my veins
And though I never knew him, it turns out we're the same

I am no stranger to rage

I am my father's son
I make my father's mistakes
I've been through shadows alone
And found my home on the streets

I've felt the cold glare of strangers,
As they passed over me.
I never figured I'd turn out to be such a disgrace,
But I'm my father's son,
The sum of all his mistakes.

I have to learn from myself
The fastest way to my death
So I could follow his footsteps
To my hospital bed

All my life I have been trying to understand myself
It seems like my own reflection is just somebody else
It's taken years to know my father courses through my veins
And though I never knew him, it turns out we're the same

I am no stranger to rage

[4x]
I never knew him
It turns out we're the same

I am my father's son [3x]
I made my father's mistakes

I am my father's son [4x]
9. Forest Fire
I'm standing by the riverside
Dreaming, hope come save me now
I'm feeling like I can't escape
Screaming, love come pull me out

All this darkness inside me
Well, I'm the creator
All this loneliness I feel, I'm the creator
The earth heaves inside of me
And there's a forest set to light
So this passion can burn!

Burn like a forest fire!
It burns, burns like a forest fire
Lost in a winter's storm like wolves,
With no stars to use as guides

We're still breathing and we're the lucky ones
The weeping willows on the banks
Where the rivers used to run
So, still sway with the breeze
But don't fall down to your knees
(Hope come save me now)

I'm standing by the riverside
And I'm dreaming, hope come save me now
I'm feeling like I can't escape
And I'm screaming, love come pull me out

We have lived in the shadows now
For far too fucking long
Pull the wool from your eyes
Tear the darkness away
We won't exist underground
For the rest of our days

But we're still breathing and we're the lucky ones
The weeping willows on the banks
Where the rivers used to run
So still sway with the breeze
But don't fall down to your knees
(Hope come save me now)

I'm standing by the riverside
And I'm dreaming, hope come save me now
I'm feeling like I can't escape
And I'm screaming, love come pull me out

I'm standing by the riverside
And I'm dreaming, hope come save me now
I'm feeling like I can't escape
And I'm screaming, love come pull me out

All this darkness inside me
Well, I'm the creator
All this loneliness I feel, I'm the creator
The earth heaves inside of me
And there's a forest set to light
So this passion can burn

Burn like a forest fire
It burns, burns like a forest fire

Burn like a forest fire
It burns, burns like a forest fire
10. Give It All
Just take it all, my heart, my mind, my every word from out of my lungs.
My every breath and every thought, and every word I've ever sung.
And though I'm glad to help you out, and get your feet back on the ground,
please understand I'm just a man - you understand? I'm just a man.

And I feel helpless when I stumble, and my anxiety escapes;
I lose all hope and I'm afraid that once again I've lost my place.

I give it all, and when I fall, I get up and give some more.
Until there's nothing left of me - just some bones stacked on the floor.

But every song's a two way street, I give to you, you give to me.
And as long as that remains I will still haul my heavy feet.
Because you're all worth every word, and yeah you're all here in my heart.
And I know we can sing together to avoid falling apart.

I give it all, and when I fall, I get up and give some more.
Until there's nothing left of me - just some bones stacked on the floor.

At the end of everything, this is for you, this is for me.
Your fight to overcome defeat has set the skies alight for me.

I give it all, and when I fall, I get up and give some more.
Until there's nothing left of me - just some bones stacked on the floor.
