Oxygen - Lyrics

Shut off my oxygen

God I'm broken in
Hear my voice, you win
She pulled my veins like the strings of a marionette
And now I'm caught, stuck in her web

And with my last dying breath
I would ask her to stay forever
Been here before, life-support
But I need her more

I'm stuck in my head, tied to this hospital bed
And I wish I wasn't dead
So I could've turned to you and said

Shut off my oxygen
Our love was only carbon-based
Just like the world, it's all gone to waste
So please tell me, is this what you expected?
In a season like cyanide, you killed me
You took away the mask that gave me life
Put flowers on my grave
And pray that life's the same when I'm gone
Now I'm gone

I'm gonna carry myself to the shallows in my mind
I'd rather cut the strings I tied
And never find the time to find piece of mind
I'd rather drown myself than be left behind
Be left behind

It always hurt to be careful
It always hurt to stand still
You pushed me to the point
Where I felt I didn't have a choice
Just to end it all, and

Shut off my oxygen
Our love was only carbon-based
Just like the world, it's all gone to waste
So please tell me, is this what you expected?
In a season like cyanide, you killed me
You took away the mask that gave me life
Put flowers on my grave
And pray that life's the same when I'm gone
Now I'm gone

And all along the way
We're trying to place the blame
Now you'll see, this was never meant to be
(We're screaming out)

What did you steal from me?
What did you take from all the days we spent running?
I guess we pushed too hard
We wanted what couldn't be done in such little time
We pushed blood through these pages and let our greed pave the way
All the way, all the way
All the way
