lyrics

How cold you became
And how hard I foolishly held on
How you called me your best friend
The day you wanted me gone

There is nothing left
No kiss, no smile, no empty sex
Nothing but a cold, dark room
And a mind full of countless regrets

Sinking to a new low
(you still have my things, but you don't care)
Drowning in you
(you still wear my ring, but you don't care)
Caught in your undertow
(when will I come up for air?)
I'm sinking to a new low

Come on, baby
Let's fuck one more time
For old time's sake.
I don't even care if you fake it.
Something about how I disgust you
Really turns me on.
Something about how you can't stand me
Really lights my fire.
There's something about the glare you gave me
When I told you I wanted you.
Something about that pitiful stare.
The bitterness in the summer air.

Sinking to a new low
(you still have my things, but you don't care)
Drowning in you
(you still wear my ring, but you don't care)
Held under by the flow
(when will I come up for air?)
I'm sinking to a new low

I can't justify what I'm craving
And I can't deny the breath I could be saving
You just don't hear a word I'm saying
You just don't hear my system failing

Like an anchor to the bottom of the ocean
Like a planet to the heart of its dying sun
I'm sinking to a new low.
How far down will I go?
I don't know.
