"Swallow" is about being trapped in an unhealthy situation or relationship and needing to escape.


I can't imagine any other way I'd want this to go
Doing and redoing with the same outcome
I should have known
But hey, that's what it's all about
Insanity, they say it goes
Repeat your execution and expect different results
I've gone loco

So now you wag your finger like a teacher
To make me think I'm alone
Well don't give me too much hope
'Cause I just may get the wrong idea,
I know you know
I'm in time out, disregard your heart, I need to be taught
Oh how I'd love to cut the tension straight out the room

If you sever your ties, you will find that it's alright
If you swallow your pride, you will find that it's alright
