From the album Wandering

Lyrics

On my chest
I bear a weight that will not bend
To the shape of my future
And in my hands I hold the past
And my mistakes
Feel like bricks in the water
Oh these eyes stay open
When I’m trying to sleep
Unwelcome thoughts that never leave
My heart beats slow
So I can save my energy
For those bricks in the water

Bricks in the water
Like bricks in the water
It feels like bricks in the water
They been dragging me down
When I never learned how to swim
Those bricks in the water
Like bricks in the water
It feels like bricks in the water
I think I’m going under again

Beneath the surface
Of this ocean that I tread
Are my faults and my failures
Heavy and porous
The bricks absorb euphoric wings
And once again I am drowning

Bricks in the water
Like bricks in the water
It feels like bricks in the water
They been dragging me down
When I never learned how to swim
Those bricks in the water
Like bricks in the water
It feels like bricks in the water
No, I’m not going under again

I’ll gather all the strength
That I have left
Propel my body
From the darkest depth

Bricks in the water
Like bricks in the water
It feels like bricks in the water
They been dragging me down
When I never learned how to swim
Those bricks in the water
Bricks in the water
It feels like bricks
Yeah, dragging me down
When I never learned how to swim
Those bricks, oh
Bricks in the water
In the water
