Water fills my lungs,
as I watch the surface disappear.

I'm falling into the darkness,
Horrified of where I'm going.
I’ll vanquish this life of mine & learn to sink or swim.

I can't let this ship go down without a fight;
I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Raise the sails,
Set your sight on the horizon to take on this maelstrom.
Pray this night won't be our last.

Let's brace against the dark flood,
and make our final stance.
Consumed with fear I know that I am not alone.

A struggle of colossal proportion, within ourselves.
So take the wheel and make this life yours.

I am the captain of my own fate.
