Literalmente sería "hundirse o nadar", su significado es fracasar o salir victorioso gracias a los esfuerzos de uno. Podría analogarse en cierto sentido a los modismos "A todo o nada" o "Lograrlo o morir en el intento".

I break building blocks of pessimism and optimism alternately and be hurt each time when I look back.

Will I win or lose? Can I stand up? Can I start afresh? Will I live or die?

Wait until they sink or swim

In the apple store
Sink or swim, who fucking cares
Cut the birth cords

in our shattered glass
where one loves, sink or swim

I know, love's always been sink or swim so I won't

I watched the ice get thin
Now, does she sink or swim?
