I get this feeling way too often
Flushed away and forgotten
Or never really thought of like
The reason the sky is blue or
The reason why you think it's okay to repeat the same actions over
Or the reason why I do—
You stay on your mountain while I'm down here drowning
In water that's not even deep but I just can't surface
The crazy thing is I always thought I was a good swimmer
From the lessons I had,
Seeing others experiences I thought I would never drown
