What does this quote/saying mean?
So I recently heard a new song from my favorite artist (Lil Peep) it goes
“Cut my ties & take a breath, let the tide do all the rest.” So to me it meant let go of what u can’t control & I really liked that & wanted it tattooed but then I found out it’s
“Cut my ties & hold my breath, let the tide do all the rest.” & I feel like saying hold my breath means more so wait instead of let go, so what do u think the actual saying means?

"Cut my ties" expresses "letting go." "Hold my breath" expresses enduring. Instead of struggling against the tide, let the tide bring you to where you can take a breath again. It's a metaphor for not struggling against life, but when it gets hard, unbind yourself, take a breath and hold it, and then go with the flow until you can come back up for air, having faith that you'll be delivered.
