Take hold, the hand that leads
A mouth that feeds
Lips breathe lies
A story written for you

And call my name
And reach for the surface

Shapes shift, a light fades
Sink where no one can see you
Flooded lungs, and heavy feet

And take a step and let yourself drown
And call my name, reach for the surface

We let go, of a burden graced with heavy hands
Feet tired of running away from chance
As we hit the bottom, only our bodies remain

We let go, of a burden graced with heavy hands
Feet stumble, to the crawl of a child
Only our bodies remain
