Well I can't stand to look at you now
This revelation's out of my hands
Still I can't bear the thought of you now
This complication's leaving me scared

Stay when you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me
Trying to get through
Blame all your weakness on me
Shame that I'm so contrite
Hey keep your fingers off me
Why can't I get through?

You think you have the best of intentions
I cannot shake the taste of blood in my mouth

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) All done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's,
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You got me thinking that the party's all over

Well I can't stand to be with myself
This liberation's seemingly rare
And I can't stand the taste of your mouth
This sublimation's out of my hands

You stay 'cause you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me
I'm trying to get through
Shame you could take this from me
Bane on an empty mind
Hey keep your fingers off me
Why can't I get through?

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) All done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You got me thinking that the party's all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because I'm trying to get through

Say what you want but you're not gonna win this time
Take what you want but just leave me alive
[repeat]

(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) All done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me, save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's,
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
Still you believe that we can start it all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because the party's all over

Lay down
Just stay down
Lay down because I'm trying to get through

Song facts

According to frontman Shaun Morgan, the track's title "got its name from the swampy verse riff". On the band's official message board, Morgan explained the track's background, saying "in some ways I guess I was dealing with growing up and having to make better life choices. It's definitely not country, but we recorded the album in Nashville, and felt like it was a small homage to such a wonderful city."
