[Repeat: x2]
Helpless, I am so helpless
(Helpless to you)
Stays this way with time

There's a rising tide
I feel my luck this time's changing
I could hold the sky
If my feet weren't chained to the ground

Words won't stop the blood
From working up a storm
The fix won't keep the fool
From coming back for more

The sea won't stop returning
Action precious gold
As it over powers
Pulls you to the ocean floor

[Repeat: x2]
Helpless, I am so helpless
(Helpless to you)
Stays this way with time

I reach out for the sun
Cold water feels my lungs slowly
I dream I changed your mind
Clutching deep inside of you

Words won't stop the blood
From working up a storm
The fix won't keep the fool
From coming back for more

The sea won't stop returning
Action precious gold
As it over powers
Pulls you to the ocean floor

[Repeat: x4]
Helpless, I am so helpless
(Helpless to you)
Stays this way with time

[Repeat: x3]
Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless to you

    Helpless,
    I'm so helpless,
    Helpless to you
    Stays this way, i'm done (x2)

    With the rising tide,
    I feel my luck this time is changing,
    I could hold the sky,
    If my feet weren't chain stirring

    Words won't stop the blood from working up a storm,
    The fix won't keep the fool from coming back for more,
    The sea won't stop returning at your precious call,
    As it overpowers, pulls you to the ocean floor

    Helpless,
    I'm so helpless,
    Helpless to you,
    Stays this way, i'm done (x2)

    I'm reaching for the sun,
    Cold water fills my lungs slowly,
    I dream i changed your mind,
    Clutching deep inside of you

    Words won't stop the blood from working up a storm,
    The fix won't keep the fool from coming back for more,
    The sea won't stop returning at you precious call,
    As it overpowers, pulls you to the ocean floor

    Helpless,
    I'm so helpless,
    Helpless to you,
    Stays this way, i'm done (x4)

    Helpless, .. Helpless to you (x4)
