Sinkin (feat. Musashi Xero & Linus)

from Live The Life by Philo Reitzel



Please reach out a hand for help before you sink to the bottom.


How does it feel to sink to the bottom give up and stop tryin
My options are all exhausted I’m tired of constantly fightin
I’m sinkin, afloat in the ocean without a beacon
And my lifeboat is leakin and I don’t think I’ll be reachin
I’m sinkin, deeper down I can’t see the surface now
Can’t see the purpose how will I reverse this
I self medicate, tryin to fix the problems inside and
I think I’m over prescribing to hide from the skin that I’m in
Sinkin, I climb the ladder on my fire escape
But that can’t even break the water’s surface
This lake makes me nervous, I’m wondering if I can touch the bottom
And live to tell the tale before I exhale all my oxygen
I’m Sinkin, hard to swim with your eyes open
some friends stopped blinkin preferred to permanently close em
sinkin, it seems as if the top has frozen over
the temperature’s droppin, getting colder
I scream for help, no one hears me through the chunk of ice
Fuck my life, all it was ever worth was nothing nice
I based it more on rolls of dice than solid plans
The vultures in the night are not your mans
Love is not measured in grams but it feels like it
Makes sense feel type a ways when cake comes and weighs in
Real psychic I can predict my next
Move until they run out when there’s no time left
