​Solid Ground

This song is by Autophobia and appears on the album Stay Awake (2005).

Woke up in the water
With nothing behind me
And nothing ahead
But a mist in the sky
Floating alone
Down a current of trouble
Where people are nothing
But logs floating by
I dig my feet in
And it pushes me forward
(Time waits for no one
And never slows down)
There is no control
And the only true hope:
Stay awake and I'll find solid ground

Cannot sink too deep
Cannot run to shore
Cannot fall asleep
There is something more

There's a place at the end of the stream
I have seen it before in my dreams
While the world may seem a mess
There's a place worth every breath
Where the river is going,
It never stops flowing
And leading me closer to death

The water is deep
And so friendly and tempting
And life is for living
(We know this is true)
But explore too deep
And you'll sink in the mud
Stay out of the black
And into the blue
While the shore is an exit
For those who are desperate
To always avoid feeling
Desperate or drowned
They'll sink in the sand
When they step onto land
I'm waiting for my solid ground

Cannot sink too deep
Cannot run to shore
Cannot fall asleep
I am waiting for

The place at the end of the stream
I have seen it before in my dreams
While the world may be a mess
I continue to take breath
For the river is going,
It never stops flowing
And leading me closer to death
