As I Lay Dying – Undertow

Undertow

[Intro: Tim Lambesis]
The life that I sought was already like a jail
Long before I was ever bound

[Verse 1: Tim Lambesis]
Wrapped up in chains
One had built the bonds
Use to hold me captive
I had locked away myself in a captain-less ship
Destined to destroy ashore
Destruction was my savior
Crushing collapse
Crashing from the impact

[Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
I can't escape the undertow that's pulling me
But I keep fighting to get away
The undertow that's pulling me, pulling me

[Post-Chorus: Tim Lambesis]
My control disappeared
'Cause it was never real

[Verse 2: Tim Lambesis]
Aboard a ship with nowhere to go
Guided by lifelessness, a skeleton without a soul
Crushing collapse, looming ahead
Crashing is imminent from the impact

[Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
I can't escape the undertow that's pulling me
But I keep fighting to get away
The undertow that's pulling me, pulling me
I can't escape the undertow that's pulling me, pulling me

[Bridge: Tim Lambesis]
Though I found freedom when
I stopped fighting everyone else
And loosened up the anchor
That I had tied around myself
I let go of the chains, chains
Just let go of the chains
I let go of the chains used to hold me in
My addictions killing me from within

[Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
I can't escape the undertow that's pulling me
But I keep fighting to get away
The undertow that's pulling me, pulling me
I can't escape the undertow that's pulling me
But I keep fighting to get away
The undertow that's pulling me, pulling me

[Outro: Tim Lambesis]
Just let go of the chains, chains
I let go of the chains used to hold me in my addiction
