"Oxygen" as written by Dane Anthony Deviller, Sean Syed Hosein and Brian John Howes....
I can't sit back and watch
You jump in the deep end
With him as your oxygen
Cause it's a long way to fall
When you sink to the bottom
Hoping he'll change again

You're drowning in tears
And how can you breathe
Underwater
Believe those lies much longer
He cheats you, deceives you
With heavy hands he holds you
So cold, with a heart of fool's gold
Caught in the undertow

You'll always be the one
To say there's no black and white
I must be color blind
Cause it's a long way to fall
When you sink to the bottom
Leaving it all behind

You're drowning in tears
And how can you breathe
Underwater
Believe those lies much longer
He cheats you, deceives you
With heavy hands he holds you
So cold, with a heart of fool's gold
Caught in the undertow

And I know it's hard
To see through it now
Cause he says he'll change
As he's pulling you down

Underwater
Believe those lies much longer
He cheats you, deceives you
With heavy hands he holds you
So cold, with a heart of fool's gold
Caught in the undertow
He cheats you, deceives you
Caught in the undertow
He cheats you, deceives you
Caught in the undertow
He cheats you, deceives you

I can't sit back and watch
You jump in the deep end
With him as your oxygen

    General CommentI can't believe nobody comments this band! They have so much talent.

    This song is about seeing the person you love with someone else who is abusive. And by abusive, it might not just mean physically or emotionally abusive, but possibly substance-abusive and has bad habits such as alcohol dependance, etc. The girl tries to convince herself that her boyfriend will change, but the person (singing) hates to see her with someone who doesn't appreciate or deserve her.
