lyrics

I'll take you at night
To a swamp made out of mud
All the lines are blurry

You'll see there's victims here
You'll see the rotting in their skulls
Who ever knew we would be?

Now playing mind control
With all the pieces sitting in front of me
Don't imagine you're alive
Just know you're knee-deep
And sinking!

Grab the rope I just want out
Toss the rope and grab me out
I can feel the mud it's smothering me
Nothing left but sudden death
All I've got here is my strength
I just want to get out, get out now!

So back inside the swamp
Our hero's end, it won't be long
Until another number

Ends up sinking all the way
Too deep you'd never find a way
To even scratch the surface

Just look inside of me
I can't get free, I'm looking for anything
All that we've got left is our hope
Anxiety is past it's quota
And still we're sinking!

Grab the rope I just want out
Toss the rope and grab me out
I can feel the mud it's smothering me
Nothing left but sudden death
All I've got here is my strength
I just want to get out, get out now!

Aimless, shameless
Not to be outdone
I saw the light on
And it wasn't inside of me
It came from somewhere deep inside the mud
Still urging me to stay
I'd say, no way!
