Chris Guzman This song. Oh this song. We go back, all the way to preschool. I was hanging with my main man Obama (or Barry as I like to call him) and I told him "Ay yo Barry, one day imma write the best song in the world".

Here it is.

lyrics

And my regrets are all just lies
that anchor me down and keep me awake with these thoughts
the night will get me through my shame
It helps me almost forget my crime

Time moves so slowly but the years pass
to build oneself upon one’s cracks is a profound ability
But what have I accomplished?

So cast me to the sea
It’s where I want to be
A distant memory
just like your greatest dream
I’ll sink way down deep
where no one can see
and then I’ll find my peace

(And can it be traced back to a boy with the world in his hands?)

sat in the cold wishing I'd understand the unknown
What compels one to leave behind all that they've known?
and can it be traced back to a boy with the world in his hands?

Questions were all I had left
in my possession I clutch to my chest
just like indecision
I'm longing for a sense of direction


You cast me out
Each word you said was tidal wave
That just helped me drown

(Please just cast me out)

I wonder now
Whatever it is you're doing
And if you think about
The weight of your choices

(You can watch me drown)

You cast me out
Years spent asking myself questions
Trying to figure out there were no answers

(Please just cast me out)

So ask me now
If I remember you
And if I learned to tell myself that it's okay

(You can watch me drown)

That you cast me out
You never turned your head
You never saw me drown

You cast me out
I kept on choking on bubbles that I called my self doubts

You cast me out
You never turned your head
You never saw me drown

You cast me out
I kept on choking on bubbles
That I call myself doubts
Cause you were never around

You cast me out
