Oxygen Thief (2021)

I know that they said that life isn’t fair

But honestly, sometimes I really don’t care

I just want to feel like I may be enough

When I cry and the whole world looks at me says, “tough”

When I try and I try and I still can’t succeed

Whether money or love or the home that I need

When the mirror I’d rather shatter than look

When I can’t close my eyes and I can’t read a book

Cause my brain is insane and commits foul play

Every night, every thought, every word, every day

And the escape that I knew is now falling through

And my world along with it is crumbling too


How do I let go

I fall and still I know

That I will not fall beneath

What my parents built for me

I won’t fall far from this ol’ family tree

And we carry on like the story’s old

Continue as if the story’s told

Climbing higher and higher still

Hoping someday that I will

Be more than just me

Be more than just

An oxygen thief


They say to look forward don’t stare at the past

But how do I look through the fire and ash

When the people around me are silencing still

And society thrives on the thrill of the kill

When my future I thought was laid out in stone

But the cat and the hatter are all overthrown

When Alice is falling with nowhere to go

When the lion and scarecrow become mortal foes

Are you blind, do you see?

Turn the lock, twist the key, brand new fate, silent scream (7/12)

Try it now, you’ll agree

Break the cage, set it free, broken glass, broken wings

Can you tell? The debris?

We’re the end

you and me


How do I let go

I fall and still, I know

That I will not fall beneath

What my parents built for me

I won’t fall far from this ol’ family tree

And we carry on like the story’s old

Continue as if the story’s told

Climbing higher and higher still

Hoping someday that I will

Be more than just me

Be more than just

An oxygen thief


They say sticks and stones, but words destroy homes

When the paper and pen come back once again

With a glint in its eye and head to the sky

You’re down on your luck what an unfortunate sight

Cause the house of cards falls all too well

When the builder and friend are both sent to hell

Try quick, turn the page

a new dawn, a new cage, a new sun, a new age, a new life, a new rage

But lift up the blindfold overcome with grief

We were never much more than an oxygen thief

(we were never much more than an oxygen thief)
