Drowning Pool

I take my boat and row down the river to a place called Sorrow’s Grave

The Drowning Pool will set me free

Drifting down trapped in a memory of a girl I couldn’t save

She still burns inside of me

 

Going to sink my boat – going to free my soul

And suffocate this screaming pain

Once you’re in the Drowning Pool

There’s no way out again

 

Lean my boat into the cold water going down for one last time

To drown that haunted burning scene

Water churns, the boat starts a turning and I slowly sink inside

The whirlpool’s taking a hold of me

 

Under turning waves, waters wash away

The memory and burning pain

Once you’re in the Drowning Pool

There’s no way out again

 

I watch my sorrow sinking down, down, down then the pool’s surrounded by a light

I feel the water spinning ‘round, ‘round, ‘round, turning to the sounds of the night

 

Washed up on the bank of the river am I dead or still alive?

Someone whispers in the breeze

“Take my hand we’ll walk on the water ‘til we reach the other side”

I feel their presence lifting me

 

“Going to take you home – Going to rest your bones

And leave behind this world of pain”

Once you’re in the Drowning Pool

There’s no way out again

Once you’re in the Drowning Pool

There’s no way out again
