Against The Bottom
Grieves Lyrics


Tell me with your back against the bottom,
There's somethin' 'bout these days that got you caught up
Toss another empty bottle to the bay
What did you say, what did you do
When life came crashing down on you?

I should have seen it when you broke down,
Stop and listen, and stop acting like you don't have a position
'Cause I could see it from the jump when I kissed you
And feel it through the walls that you constantly put your fist through
You're pissed, but you ain't gotta fight like this
Life isn't worth a dime with a knife-sliced wrist
Spent a whole bunch of time trying to write your list
But the (last thing's allowed?) to make you bite your... lip
Little girl, little love, little hold my head to the ground in the mud
Little I'm not comin' back up 'til the whole sky falls down on me
And breaks my trust
Now run, and think about it all
Think about the last chance given and the first round fall
And if that can't get you back to where you start
Just call, and meet me in the place where we always are

Tell me with your back against the bottom,
There's somethin' 'bout these days that got you caught up
Toss another empty bottle to the bay
What did you say, what did you do
When life came crashing down on you?

I should have seen it when I came back, yup,
I shoulda
'Cause you don't see the things that I really wish that you would've
No you don't make the effort I really
Thought that you could've
To unlock the cage where you put us
And take another stab at it
Fly fishin' for the catch
With my heart tied onto the only line that you cast
And if I don't sink this raft right now
I'mma float down the river 'til my
Last breaths, gasp
Yeah, little lock, little key, little drop my boxes of thoughts into the sea
No, I'm not comin' back out
'til the whole world stops in its tracks and admits its defeat
For good
Back to the shackles, back to the comfort of the things that
Attack you
And make you cold
I'm over tryin' to make this home, so just go
And leave me in the place that we'll always no

Tell me with your back against the bottom,
There's somethin' 'bout these days that got you caught up
Toss another empty bottle to the bay
What did you say, what did you do
When life came crashing down on you?

Andrew Lee

I'm suprised I haven't heard this song yet. Paused it to type this message.

Wulfyre

this song is like beer-warm in the feeling, but a depressant when you look at the lyrics- its definitely worth more than alcohol tho

Lays Chip

Ah yes, the song that starred it all (for me.)

I went and saw him yesterday, I met him, I got his autograph, he was the most energetic, wholehearted, genuine person I've ever met.

And the only reason I met him is because I realized it was worth it to stay alive, all because of this song.

Nick Ammer

I fucking love Grieves heard him when first came out and was hooked ever since!!

Burn Bridge Motor Company

I love that songs like this are loved, but not mainstream. Beautiful song by a proper artist, unspoiled by major labels. Perfect
