Original video
You are right
I'll move on
But my lungs feel so small
I couldn't breathe if I tried

I lay my head on the floor
My beating heart wanted more
But I'll keep it in, and keep you out

I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
I'm drownin', I'm drownin'

And for the longest time, I knew
There was nothin' left for us to do
But I tried, oh I tried
And in this quiet company
There is nothin' starin' back at me
I'm in need of a sound

Hungry for the kill
But this hunger, it isn't you
Voices disappear
When you are speaking in sombre tunes
I will be the wolf
And when you're starving, you'll need it too
Hungry for the kill
But this hunger, it isn't you

It isn't you, it isn't

I grew tall to fill the void
Let me go, 'cause you are just a shade
Of what I am, not what I'll be
But in this quiet company
I forget sometimes just how to breathe
Fill my lungs with a sound

Hungry for the kill
But this hunger, it isn't you
Voices disappear
When you are speaking in sombre tunes
I will be the wolf
And when you're starving, you'll need it too
Hungry for the kill
But this hunger, it isn't you

It isn't you, it isn't

I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
I'm drownin', I'm drownin'
