Unheard Sirens Inc. – Sink or Swim

LYRIC
Sink or Swim

Feat. ThoughtBomb

Verse 1, ThoughtBomb

Gotta find my place again
Can’t waste a day
Or I’ll waste away
For a slave’s wage again
It’s a losers’ game, but I play to win
Someone just cut my lifeline
I’m the oil spill from the pipeline
Just couldn’t keep my mind confined
Guess I’m not designed for the grind
Look around and all I see are slaves
Asking to be swallowed by the waves
Swim all day then take the pain away
Swim in alcohol and drown in rage
Gotta go, change my flow
Break the code, on my own
Save my soul, take the road
To the sea, down below
But am I ready
To bite thе hand that’s fed me?
To spit on the pеople that bled me?
Take control of the reigns and hold steady
And find my place again
Close my eyes, take the plunge
Swim my own pace again
Now the sharks are closing in

Chorus, Juliet & ThoughtBomb

Here I go
Time to sink or swim
Go free
Only one on my side
To defy is suicide
Rather die than comply
Swim ‘til I reach the sky
Here I go
Time to sink or swim
Go free
Only one on my side
To defy is suicide
Rather die than comply
Swim ‘til I reach the sky
Here I go
Time to sink or swim
Go free
Only one on my side
To defy is suicide
Rather die than comply
Swim ‘til I reach the sky

Verse 2, ThoughtBomb

I’m punished, when I’m not greedy enough
I’m punished, when I’m not needy enough
I’m punished, when I don’t bend the knee enough
I’m punished, when I don’t bow and kiss feet enough
Feels like I’m locked in a cell
Continue to buy and sell
Stay productive and you’ll do well
Must be the product, cuz I’m on the shelf
With no wealth, got a thirst and an empty well
You bled me dry to keep me in motion
Now my blood can fill an ocean
Gotta find my place again
Close my eyes, take a chance
Spit in your face again
I’m the grenade, you just pulled the pin

Chorus, Juliet & ThoughtBomb

Here I go
Time to sink or swim
Go free
Only one on my side
To defy is suicide
Rather die than comply
Swim ‘til I reach the sky
Here I go
Time to sink or swim
Go free
Only one on my side
To defy is suicide
Rather die than comply
Swim ‘til I reach the sky

Bridge, Juliet

I’m choking, can’t breathe
Help me
No one else will save me
Time to save myself
Swim free
Here I go, here I go
Will I surface?
Will I form gills to swim in these waters?
Can I glide and stay here, so free?

Verse 3, Juliet

Go free, go free
It’s time to sink or swim now
It’s time to sink or swim
It’s time to sink or swim now
Swim deep, form gills
Take away the moon
It’s a dream with a lot of room
This new life has slick skin
I knocked and the universe let me in
Swim deep, form gills
Not a moment too soon
I was dying there, I was crying there
But now I glide
I’ve found my pride
Must stay free, can’t chain me
I’ve gone too far now
It don’t matter how
I swim free

Outro, Juliet

This is me
Go free
Here I go, here I go
It’s time to sink or swim now
It’s time to sink or swim
It’s time to sink or swim now
So free
So free
