Opiate for the Masses

Opiate for the Masses was a post-hardcore band from Arizona. They formed in Phoenix in 1999 by Ron Underwood, Elias Mallin, Dustin Lyon and Jim Kaufman. The meaning of their name comes from the Karl Marx quote that says the organized religion is an opiate for oppressed countries and cultures. In June 2009, they posted on their MySpace page that they had broken up and gone their separate ways. Ron is currently singing for 9 Electric. more »

 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

I've got a drownin' sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here
With every time I feel this
I fight to not reveal this
I hide the hand that shakes in fear

Heavy in this ocean all around
Tired of swimming in this sickness I have found

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again

I've got a drownin' sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here
I'd try to verbalize this
If I could realize this
So many things I can't see clear

Heavy in this ocean all around
Tired of swimming in this sickness I have found

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again
Wake me when I drown
Shed my skin
I'm born again

I've got a drownin' sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this

I've got a drownin' sickness
I gotta breathe and fix this
I gotta get me outta here

Wake me when I drown
Breathe it in to sleep again
Wake me when I drown
Shed my skin
I'm born again
