I knew this would be hell,
But this is not living.

Push them down and exhale water
Push them down and exhale blood. x2

Breathe.

You wanted this
And if we can't even trust ourselves
How can we trust anyone else.

It's not safe to swim today
It's not safe to swim today
It's not safe to swim today,
It's not safe...

I don't think I can be saved. x2
This shallow water is my grave.
I don't think I can be saved.

Breathe.

Exhale blood
Push them down and exhale water
Push them down and exhale blood.

    That it is amazing. Marc okubo has major talent he wrote most of the music and hearing them play this live was insane! Amazing lyrics the meaning to me is that they are trapped in shallow water with no escape so it will become their grave. Exhale water and blood

    I'm sure it'd mean more than just battle in shallow water, I do agree on the society one though. Push them down (put them down, with words etc. And they just keep doing it). "its not safe to swim today" (in my opinion is its not safe to go into society without being put down or judged by someone.) and the society will be his grave because he can't be saved from all the hate.
