Lyrics:

Drown

Well, he earned his reputation
As a man who can't be saved
Every new addiction's
One step closer to his grave
And I wish we could have helped him
Instead of watch him spiral down
But you just can't throw a lifeline
To a man who wants to drown

He drags his best friends with him
He wrecks his family
He makes promise after promise
We all know he'll never keep
He abandons his convictions
At Joey's bar in Harbortowne
And you just can't throw a lifeline
To a man who wants to drown

He'll pull you in
He'll pull you in
He used to be your friend
But he'll pull you in

He tried a 12 step program
He tripped on number four
He couldn't face the mirror
So he closed another door
The friend we all remember
Isn't really in him now
And you just can't throw a lifeline
To a man who wants to drown
You just can't throw a lifeline
To a man who wants to drown
