[Verse 1]
I let the alcohol flow, down my throat
Like a river of regret in which I float
On a raft, not a boat, cause i crafted, what I know
All the actions, that I chose, it provoked

The rapids and waterfalls we endured
It’s as if it was backwards cause I was sure
It felt like I was going against the current and never turned
The weather furnished my pain, worsened, I let it pour

But you swam to shore, and called it quits
In the midst of calm waters, you wanted to stir up arguments
Regarding shit upstream that we had past
I see at last why you wanted to leave, you believed I had

Hidden intent, to ditch you when we had hit against
A boulder, then push you off my shoulder to go and swim again
Use it as an excuse to leave but it was you and me
Until we hit the ocean but emotions caused new debree

[Chorus]
Now I’m driftin’
Yeah I’m driftin’
Get high by myself, drunk by myself
Cause really there’s nothing else, cause nothing helps

Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Killin’ me softly, yeah I guess that it cost me
I just wanted to come and say I’m sorry

[Verse 2]
We cycle back, despite the fact that it’s lightning fast
Only time could tell, but time without you is hell
Let’s try it over again and maybe this time prevail
Set sail to an island to grow old and pale

Sienarra to yesterday for the better days of tomorrow
Honor your every wish like Calypso and it’s no bother
Infinite ‘mounts of wishes, no hidden intent for karma
I repent all your sins and dispense them inside the lava

Boilin’ up from the love, oh boy this is like a drug
Let’s pop some oxycodone, stop being stones in the mud
A feelin as if you’re free, euphoric immortally
But when you start coming down, pain rushes in horribly

Reality sets in, we’re back to stressin again
You can’t allude from your doom by using hallucinogens
So screw with the mess and pressure, this weather is gettin’ heavier
Wrote a shit load of letters, gotta get it to the messenger

[Chorus]
Before I drowned
Shit I’m going down (shit)
Get high by myself, drunk by myself
Cause really there’s nothing else, cause nothing helps

Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Killin’ me softly, yeah I guess that it cost me
I just wanted to come and say I’m sorry

[Verse 3]
I have no defense against the waters, fuck it
Now I’m scooping buckets to cut it from flooding
I’m caught up and stuck in this predicament, I’m thinkin’ something caused it
But how could a woman so flawless be the cause of all this

Shit, I’m tossing and turnin’, I think I’m sinkin
I’m blacking out, I really don’t know what the fuck I’m drinkin’
I’m gasping now, I can’t seem to grasp air, my lungs fill with liquid
I choke on my own vomit from the sea sickness

You’ll see me at the shipwreck
On the couch, hungover, look like a big mess
Washed up on the river banks
Not even knowing how much shit I drank

[Chorus]
I was driftin’
Yeah I was driftin’ (yeah)
Get high by myself, drunk by myself
Cause really there’s nothing else, cause nothing helps

Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Yeah bitch, you’re killin me
Killin’ me softly, yeah I guess that it cost me
I just wanted to come and say I’m sorry

[Outro]
Say that I’m sorry, for all the shit I’ve done (2x)
