We all ferment
A face can change
But souls stay young
We're all connected
So take a journey with someone
Learn to be as one

Still living, sinking, falling, twisting,
But I'm breathing you in, breathing you in
Oxygen, Oxygen

We all ferment
A taste can change
From days so young
You feel rejected
Just hold your head up to the sun
Learn to be as one

Still living, sinking, falling, we're still living, drifting
I'm breathing you in, breathing you in
Still living, sinking, feeding, twisting, I'm living
I'm breathing you in, breathing you in

Oxygen, Oxygen, Oxygen

Still living, sinking, falling, twisting
We're still living, I'm breathing you in, breathing you in
Still living, sinking, falling, drifting
We're living, I'm breathing you in, breathing you in
I'm breathing you in, breathing you

    This looks to be about living life to the fullest, never to go stale, to always try something new. We'd die without oxygen but we shouldn't take it for granted.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
