I'm just a normal boy
That sank when I fell overboard
My ship would leave the country
But I'd rather swim ashore

Without a life vest I'd be stuck again
Wish I was much more masculine
Maybe then I could learn to swim
Like 'fourteen miles away

Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I'm sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just run out
I'm cold as cold as cold as can be
Be

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm fallin in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now, come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam junk will do just fine
The jetsam sunk, I'm left behind
I'm treading for my life believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing)

Not knowing how to think
I scream aloud, begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I'm reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm fallin in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now, come down
Let the rain come down

Now waking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow, yeah
Just to prove I knew how, yeah
It's midnight's late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
Sat front-row in my need to fall

Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean... end it all

[Zayra]
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now, come down
Let the rain come down

Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
(In to space)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
I thought of just your face

(Into the ocean end it all Into the ocean end it all)

    to add onto Kayjee's :
    "Without a life vest I'd be stuck again
    Wish I was much more masculine
    Maybe then I could learn to swim
    Like fourteen miles away"
    She was his savior and he can't function while drowning without her. He wishes he could do this himself... the masculine thing... 'no directions'.. but maybe the best way to forget her is to leave.

    Why do you people think he wants to kill himself? I think he is in a fight w/ his wife and he really loves her, hence the reserved seat. But his wife didn't show or died and he is comparing everything to being caught in a storm in the ocean.

    I think this song is about how he loves a girl but she could never love him back?she hates him so he wants to commit suicide but he also wants to live... Or is afraid to die... Pull that last part from personal experience.

    I think this song is about having second thoughts about life, but no matter what your current situation (unless it's so utterly horrible/hopeless) you shouldn't think about ending your own life, and just try to live on, and hope for a better future. Like hoping for a way out of the ocean.
