Ten Foot Pole — Riptide lyrics

I couldve lied
The truth a needle in your eye

The wound a band-aid wont heal
But I persist

And try to tell it
Like it is

What's the point if were not real?

[Chorus:]

Riptide sweeps me out to drown
Flailing arms and aching chest the more

I struggle, the more it wears me down

How long can I hold my breath?

Another test

You used to say I was the best so
Proud to walk by my side

Now you see everything that's wrong with me

Can you accept it

Will you try?

[Chorus:]

Rolling
Choking

Still I'm kicking

Driftig farther out to sea
I wont let go of

My dim hopes somehow

Youll make it out to me
