"Murder Mitten" as written by and Devin Oliver....
You won't see my die here
You always say I need to get as far as I can
While I've got time to play with and any risk
I'll take it
Or fade away in this suburban wasteland
And watch all your plans sink right under your feet
Sink right under your feet

Watch all your plans sink right under your feet
Under your feet is the ground to break
You only take what you got
So don't just sit and watch the atrophy of it

I have stood back for way too long
You are broken
You are so broken
I can see that we may be running out of time
The curtain's falling in slow motion
I can feel that the sense has left your mind
The curtain's falling in slow motion
Why did you go
I can't watch
So quiet and peaceful
Where did I go wrong
Say you can stay
I can't look away

You won't see me die here
You won't see me die here

Now now
Do you hear me now?
Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
Now now
Do you hear me now?
Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
Why? Why?
Ask me why?
Go ahead and act like you don't know why
Why? Why?
Ask me why?
I'll scream
You blow me away
You blow me away
You blow me away
Well can you give me my breath back?
Can you give me my breath back?
Can you give me my breath back?
Can you give me my breath back?

Do you hear me now?
Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
Do you hear me now?
Screaming at the top of my lungs all night
Do you hear me now?

    My InterpretationFor me, its a song about the relationship between the parent and his/her child in the perspective of the child. Music video makes it quite evident

    "You won't see my die here" - Control seems too far and exaggeration used to say how they have to let him/her go

    "You always say I need to get as far as I can" - The parents have expectations for the child to become a successful person in their own terms

    "While I've got time to play with and any risk I'll take it" - the protection they provide leaves them doing things that seem contuary to what parent wants them to do for success

    "Or fade away in this suburban wasteland" - This can either show the parent's perspective on the child's hobby as he persues or the child's perspective on what he believes life would be like not doing what he loves

    "And watch all your plans sink right under your feet
    Sink right under your feet" - Zach states how the child doing what he loves fully just ruined the parent's plans for the kid's success


    "Under your feet is the ground to break
    You only take what you got
    So don't just sit and watch the atrophy of it" - interesting enough, the parent's world is crashing as she believes the child isn't making the right choies, and yet the child is disappointed as the parent is letting him go

    "I have stood back for way too long
    You are broken
    You are so broken"- shows how hypocritical the situation is for the child as the child believes the parent is giving up, whilst the parent let the child go, letting go what they believe is best for the child in tern letting the child do what he/she loves.

    "I can see that we may be running out of time
    The curtain's falling in slow motion
    I can feel that the sense has left your mind" - the parent might have seem completely given up as they handle their own problems other than the child

    "Why did you go
    I can't watch
    So quiet and peaceful
    Where did I go wrong
    Say you can stay
    I can't look away" - parent may still have pain for letting the child go and finds peace away. The child only feels confusion and anger due to it as they don't understand how much the parent values the child and hence can't watch the child go against the plan whilst finding ease not seeing but knowing that the child is doing what he/she loves.

    "Ask me why?
    Go ahead and act like you don't know why" - The Child feels hatred towards the parents as he/she feels as if the parents gave up on them. The parent are equally blind towards the reasons why

    "Well can you give me my breath back?" - the control felt suffocating and now the confusion feels the same

    This song is relateable to me but overlooking it, the inevitability of pain is the only thing that this alongside with probably +90% of all good rock songs are trying to deliver.

    you can concentrate on the pain on the lyrics or the beauty of the creativity of the band, its your choice.
    Things are how you preceive it (hence reality)
    Ugly things won't disappear once you see it in something,
    its your choice then on to concentrate on the beauty or the uglyness

    My InterpretationI like to think of it as this man is having a hard time through a situation. And this other person is trying to "help him" but the main man with the situation knows that he doesn't care. But trying to get him to see his problem
    "Can You hear me Now?" Screaming at the top of my lungs.."
    Basically a nobody understands me song.
