I've heard this all before
Don't waste my time, don't break my balls, get out my door.
You wont see me caving in
It's time I stand and show you what's making me spin

So if you, peel away the skin
You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
I'll stand up, to the shallow end
You won't see me drown when I sink or swim

Don't spell this out in tears
Don't play those games or say these names and live your fears
I told you no means no
You had your chance, you broke my heart, it's time to go

So if you, peel away the skin
You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
I'll stand up, to the shallow end
You won't see me drown when I sink or swim
You won't see me drown when I sink or swim

So if you, peel away the skin
You'll find the strong survivor but they can't always win
I'll stand up, to the shallow end
You won't see me drown when I sink or swim
Our loves come to a bitter end
I hope you drown when you sink or swim
I hope you drown when you sink or swim
Sink or swim
You sink or swim
