What if the devil was a lie?
What if God did not exist?
So, with all due respect
Tell me, what is death?
If life is just a bitch

I see the evil in their eyes
I hear the lies behind their grin
They wander in the dark
They do not have a heart
Don't let them take you in


Brace for impact!

You will pay the price
For betraying me
You will pay the price
You will pay the price
For betraying me
You will pay the price

So save yourself!
Because the tide is rising high

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
What will you pick?
So take some action (take some action)
Don't let the undertow grab hold

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
Man overboard!
Man overboard!

Do you believe in ghosts?
Conducting from the grave
We are nothing but pawns
So move to where they want
Cause life is just a game

I wrapped my hands around your throat
With a smile upon my face
Squeeze untill you choke
I will not let go until I feel okay

You will pay the price
For betraying me
You will pay the price
For betray

So save yourself
Because the tide is rising high

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
What will you pick?
So take some action
Don't let the undertow grab hold

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
Man overboard!
Man overboard!

I bid farewell,
To you fairweather friend
I know someday you'll get what you deserve (you deserve)
And after all, (and after all)
The bridges you have burned
I've forgiven you for things that you have done!

I bid farewell,
To you, fairweather friend
I know someday you'll get what you deserve
And after all, (And after all)
The bridges you have burned
I forgive you for the things that you have done! (You have done)

So save yourself
Because the tide is rising high

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
What will you pick?
So take some action
Don't let the undertow grab hold

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
Man overboard!

Man overboard! (man overboard! )
Man overboard! (man overboard! )

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
What will you pick?

Man overboard! (man overboard! )
Man overboard! (man overboard! )

It's sink or swim
It's hit or miss
What will you pick?
Man overboard!

    I think its about etf kicking him out to "better themselves" because with craig they were able to tour everywhere. The tide was rising and they could have stuck with ronnie, but they saved themselves
