Velcra – Water Is Getting High lyrics

I hear their laugh through the door
The little orphan in the hall
The figures dance on the floor
She's peeking in the corridor
Did everything I could
Poor little poor girl
I always played by the rules
Covered up in dirt
Truth or dare?
Are you scared yet?
I'll hold on to this little strand of hope
And know
One day I'll have a home to go
But now the water is getting high
I'm wading in my own demise
Ten feet to the sunshine
No other way out
The only way to save me
Is to do as they say, please
I've got to find it
I've got to find it
Fumbling in the dark
I can hear nothing but my heart
Beating in my mouth
Thumping in my ears
I wish I wasn't away
Blood rushing out of my ears
Tiny little gems
Light up the cave
I'm saved
Many promises were told
What made you think it's so?
The roads paved with gold
Your defence won't hold
I tried to be bold
Boo-hoo boo-hoo
The story unfolds
Who lied, who died?
All alone
Down in the hole I go
I'll hold on to this little strand of hope
And know
One day I'll have a home to go
Save me
