Oxygen

Imagewhen the lies begin to bleed to my head
its like my heart’s redundant lament
i feel it coming like the storms of the sea
over and over again

keep hanging on to the pain
its what they’ve always wanted anyway
keep you crying, trying to escape
like it don’t matter how long you’re staked
fist less fighting, give up they say

when the lies begin to bleed to my head
its like my heart’s redundant lament
i feel it coming like the storms of the sea
over and over again

then there’s the storm, the crashing sea
the water runs over, its swallowing me
i begin sinking, shore is drifting away
and i can’t remember the start of the pain
I can’t remember the start of the pain

In my despair, I feel you there
your arms reach in for me
its right in the times, when I’m finding the lie
at the bottom of the sea, you’re right there with me
giving me oxygen to breathe.

Speaking soft, tender words to me
your love is the air that I need
speak those soft tender words to me
God of wonder, you never leave me
a child so helpless, so sore

In my despair, I feel you there
your arms reach in for me
its right in the times, when I’m finding the lie
at the bottom of the sea, you’re right there with me
giving me oxygen to breathe.
