lyrics

I'm so full of empty.
I've spent my whole life confused.

Looking for love in the wrong places.
(I've made mistakes in the past)
So many faces and all the traces....
(I don't want to wake up)

If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.
If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.

And the sky is black!
(like everything I feel)
With the holes punched in.
And she comes in....

But I'm not special.
I've been kicked down, knocked out and taken out!
(I've made mistakes in the past)
So many faces and all the traces....
(I don't have the strength to get up)

If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.
If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.

So I'll play the sacrifice. Are you real? I wanted more from you!
This whole system is a whore. So you prey on the weak? The ones getting back on their feet?
It's bittersweet, one day we'll become obsolete.

If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.
If oceans can lie, sing me a lullaby!
Tell me I'll be alright when I drown.

Lie to me, lie to me, lie to me (act like you care!)
Cause when I drown...You better tread in safer waters!
When I drown I don't want to be found (be a rebound).
Don't save me when I drown, when I drown!
