Drown Me Out

Reviews: "Drown Me Out" single and video - press roundup
  1. Drown Me Out

Watch the “Drown Me Out” video here.

“Drown Me Out” is led by swaggering rhythms and gigantic, almost symphonic percussion. Over the top of this grand bedrock is a layer of needly riffs and gossamer-light vocals – this track is as dark and emotional as you’d expect from She Makes War, but there’s a greater weight behind it that delivers a knockout blow.

~ Laurence Day, The Line Of Best Fit.

“Drown Me Out”, her latest single, is a storm front and an anthem, stirring the air as it passes with a strange and magnetic energy while hounds and winds howl. It is stunning.

Drown Me Out

We’re not safe here now, I have burned the lighthouse down
You’re not good for me

Diving dreams to sea, but the rocks have stopped me
They’re not friendly

Would you fall asleep so I can’t reach you?
Would you turn away so I can’t touch you?

Forfeit myself - drown me, drown me out
Sick of silence - drown me, drown me out
I’m not sorry - drown me, drown me out
Kisses smother me - drown me out

Darkness take me soon
Water suck me under - it’s my escape from you

Would you fall asleep so I can’t reach you
Would you turn away so I can’t touch you

Forfeit myself - drown me, drown me out
Sick of silence - drown me, drown me out
I’m not sorry - drown me, drown me out
Kisses smother me

So you’re throwing a rope
Cos your victim is overboard
But I’m looking for something wonderful
To keep me in this lifeboat

Would you fall asleep so I can’t reach you
Would you turn away so I can’t touch you

Forfeit myself - drown me, drown me out
I’m not sorry - drown me, drown me out
Sadness suffocate - drown me, drown me out
Sick of silence, sick of myself
Drown me out
