Sleater-Kinney Surface Envy Lyrics

Throw me a rope, give me a leg

I haven’t seen daylight in what must be day

I took the long way down, lost track of myself

Confidence fell down the steepest of slopes

I’ll row you an ocean, I could do more

I feel so much stronger, now that you’re here

We’ve got so much to do, let me make that clear

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

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

I’m breaking the surface, tasting the air

I’m reaching for things like never before

The anchor is heavy, I can’t hold the weight

The guilt holds me down, won’t let me be myself

Suck it all in, suck it all up

Let go of thoughts holding me back

I’ll push twice as hard towards it you see

And the past falls away to the bottom of the deep

When we leave say goodbye to your old way of life

I can breathe way up high now it’s our turn to fly
