lyrics

I went to the boat docks because the walls were bothering me
I needed answers and the walls refused to talk to me
I went to the boat docks but I couldn't see a thing
I had to jump into the water because I couldn't be cleansed by rain

What if I can't swim? What if I've forgotten how to tread?
I guess I'll find out, I guess I'll find out
When the water rushes up to meet my head

I think I left the boat dock, but I can't remember when
I didn't shed my clothes so I don't know how I left
I didn't take off my shoes, I did not remove my pants
I didn't empty out my pockets
No, the water emptied them

What if I can't swim? What if I've forgotten how to tread?
I guess I'll find out, I guess I'll find out
When the water rushes up to meet my head

I never learned to float, my body is not a boat
But it's a vehicle when it meets the undertow

If I go to the boat dock, I'm never coming back
It isn't up to me, so I've gotta watch my back
If I go to the boat dock, at least I left you this
I'll be checking up on you because I'd like to think that I'm missed

What if I can't swim? What if I've forgotten how to tread?
I guess I'll find out, I guess I'll find out
When the water rushes up to meet my head
