Sleater-Kinney – Surface Envy Lyrics

Throw me a rope, give me a leg1
I haven’t seen daylight in what must be days2
I took the long way down, lost track of myself3
Confidence fell down the steepest of slopes4
I’ll row you an ocean, I could do more
I feel so much stronger, now that you’re here5
We’ve got so much to do, let me make that clear6

We win, we lose, only together do we break the rules
We win, we lose, only together do we make the rules7

I’m breaking the surface, tasting the air
I’m reaching for things like never before8
The anchor is heavy, I can’t hold the weight
The guilt holds me down, won’t let me be myself9
Suck it all in, suck it all up
Let go of thoughts holding me back10
I’ll push twice as hard towards it you see
And the past falls away to the bottom of the deep11

When we leave say goodbye to your old way of life
I can breathe way up high now it’s our turn to fly12
