Compromise around the corner
Can you hear the accountant's call?
Could you refuse another dollar?
Could you stop yourself from falling?

So in between the sleepless nights
You dream that you are winning fights
But then it happens, dreadful thing
A wave appears too big to swim

You're drowning, you're drowning
You're drowning, you're drowning

Buy a beach before next summer
How do you feel in the morning?
If the light's an awful bother
I could always close the curtains

Just close your eyes and count to ten
See if you still remember when
Your life seemed easy, you had friends
But that was different, that that was then

You're drowning, you're drowning
(Round and round and round)
You're drowning, you're drowning
(In a frenzy now)

You want fe go in a de ocean
(A so me say)
I saw you drowning in slow motion
(And now me learn)
Far too late to make a commotion
Too late for you to show easy motion

That's why you go down to the bottom, say you can't reach the top
Get stuck on the bottom, say you can't reach the top
A two days later say they find you 'pon the rocks
Say ha ha ha ha ha, bad luck, eh, so

Tell yourself until you're certain
When you hear the accountants call
You'll buy a beach before next summer
Swim away and leave it all

So underwater, deaf and blind
Under such pressures you might find
A secret right before the end
That makes you want to breathe again

You're drowning, you're drowning
(Round and round and round)
You're drowning, you're drowning
(In a frenzy now)

You're drowning, you're drowning
(Round and round and round)
You're drowning, you're drowning
(Round and round and round)
