    Let me drown in an ocean full of :heart:'s.
    Let them surround my body and pull me under....
    Making way for their different types of affection...
    Emotions shaped and designed to its own perfection.

    Showing me hate in all forces that it can come...
    Placing me on its list at number one...

    Show me love to the highest degree...
    And love me unconditionally...

    Show me tears...that would flood the ocean...
    As i drown drinking its potions....

    Show me joy through all the madness....
    As another presents me wit sadness....

    Let me drown in and ocean full of :heart:'s...
    Let me soak in its essence...
    As i spill out in confession
    As if i was at the alter...
    Praying for repentence of my sins...
    As i drink in the potion of my drowning :heart:'s

    I see the different types of healing...
    I see the different types of feeling...
    I see what many aren't sharing...
    I see what was presented as daring...
    Flashing before my eyes...
    I see death...
    Yet hear the cries of hearts bleeding
    Feeding off one another....
    As they drown in sorrow...
    Forgetting about tomorrow...

    And i sink...
    deeper into the ocean....
    lungs filled with their potion...
    I sink....
    Looking up at those who stayed behind...
    Those who wanted to give it one more try...
    And i hold onto those that gave themself to me...
    Those who aloud me to feed...
    As I sink to the bottom of the ocean....
