The Faint – Ballad Of A Paralysed Citizen lyrics

I'm paralysed and things could change for you as well
You're not so bad off now, you can move anything you need.
I'm not this way because of an emergency I caused
At seventeen a guard perched above the chlorine floor
When I saw a hand raise up from just beneath the air,
A frantic move for help, I made an instant judgment call.
Dive- I arced my feet to dive, I broke the elemental line
To save a child. Dive- into the shallow floor
The bottom scraped my palms and compressed my spine.
Now I'm paralysed while they just hope to make amends
The family and the kid who faked the drowning incident,
I've felt the hand of god and that's the last thing that I felt
At all below my back, I've lost the faith I thought I had
Dive- I arced my feet to dive, I broke the elemental line
To save a child. Dive- into the shallow floor
The bottom scraped my palms and compressed my spine.
