My life's a mess
I've tried everything
but nothing works
all is beyond me
I'm useless, washed up
a total failure

Another defeat i'm sinking fast
any lower and I will drown
thick black water's
closing in on me
dragging me down
if only i could succeed

I've failed , its quite simple really
there's no other way to say it
I can't take it anymore
disappointment surrounds me
pulling at me, ******* me
into the abyss

You hold out your hand
It's like a lifeline
I grasp it quickly
maybe I can win
get another chance
to hold on to you
and finally prevail
