Compromise around the corner
Can you hear the accountants call?
Could you refuse another dollar?
Could you stop yourself from falling?

So in between the sleepless nights
You dream that you are winning fights
But then it happens, dreadful thing
A wave appears too big to swim
You're drowning, you're drowning.

Buy a beach before next summer?
How do you feel in the morning?
If the light's an awful bother
I could always close the curtains.
Just close your eyes and count to ten
See if you still remember when
Your life seemed easy, you had friends
But that was different than that was then
You're drowning, you're drowning
Round and round and round
You're drowning
In a frenzy now
You're drowning

You want fe go in a de ocean, a so me say
I saw you drowning in slow motion, and now me learn
Far too late to make a commotion
Too late for you to show easy motion
A say you go down to the bottom
Say you can't reach the top
Get stuck on the bottom

Say you can't reach the top
Two days later say they find you 'pon the rocks
Say ha ha ha ha ha bad luck!
Eh so

Tell yourself until you're certain
Can you hear the accountants call?
You'll buy a beach before next summer
Swim away and leave it all.

So underwater deaf and blind
Under such pressures you might find
A secret right before the end
That makes you want to breathe again
You're drowning, you're drowning
Round and round and round
You're drowning
Inner frenzy now you're drowning
Round and round and round and round
You're drowning, drowning
