about

Written, performed and produced by Robert LaSalle

lyrics

i wrote them off
i drove straight into the river
everyone's gone
'cause of something i couldn't give 'em

the waters too deep
i can't lay low
i can't touch the bottom
'cause they won't see me as i go

i want it my way
i see it their way
we can't settle our indifferences
the same old way

i know i'm not what they wanted me to be
everyone wants me to be something i can't be
i'm at the bottom and i can't see
diggin' a hole i can't live that deep

i can bleed like tomorrow
when i can't see today
i can't see anything
in this old place

a perfect smile
in their perfect world
it's all getting too thick
i don't want to be there because i know

i'm not what they want me to be
everyone wants me to be something i can't be
i'm at the bottom and i can't see
diggin' a hole i can't live that deep

they dropped the anchor
it's heavier than them
the current is taking us
to new waters

drown out the sensations
that i once had
i know i'm never gonna see the end like i wanted
i know i'm never gonna see the end like i wanted
