Oxygen Lyrics

Oxygen - Willy Mason

Written by:Willy Mason

 

I wanna be

 

Better than oxygen

So you can breathe

When you're drowning and weak in the knees

I wanna speak

Louder than Ritalin

 

For all the children

Who think that they've got a disease

I wanna be

Cooler than TV

For all the kids

That are wondering what they are going to be

We can be

Stronger than bombs

If you're singing along

And you know that you really believe

We can be

Richer than industry

As long as we know that

There's things we don't really need

We can speak

Louder than ignorance

 

'Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet

 

On and on

And on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

 

Until I'm dizzy

Time to breathe

So close my eyes and start again a new

 

I wanna see through all the lies of society

To the reality

Happiness is at stake

I wanna hold up my head with dignity

Proud of a life

Where to give means more than to take

I want to live beyond the modern mentality

Where paper is all

That you're really taught to create

Do you remember the forgotten America

Justice equality

Freedom to every race

Just need to get past all the lies and hypocrisy

Make up an hear to the truth

Behind every face

That look around to all the people you see

 

How many of them are happy

And free

I know

It sounds like a dream

But it's the only thing that

Can get me to sleep at night

I know

It's hard to believe

But it's easy to see that

Something here isn't right

I know

The future looks dark

But it's there that

The kids of today must carry the light

 

On and on

And on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

 

Until I'm dizzy

Time to breathe

So close my eyes and start again a new

 

If I'm afraid to catch a dream

 

I weave your baskets

And I'll float them down the river stream

 

Each one I weave with words

I speak

 

To carry love to your relief

 

I wanna be

 

Better than oxygen

So you can breathe

When you're drowning and weak in the knees

I wanna speak

Louder than Ritalin

For all the children who think

That they've got a disease

I wanna be

Cooler than TV

For all the kids that are wondering

What they are going to be

We can be

Stronger than bombs

If you're singing along

And you know that you really believe

We can be

 

Richer than industry

As long as we know that

There's things we don't really need

We can speak

Louder than ignorance

'Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet

 

On and on

And on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

 

Until I'm dizzy

Time to breathe

 

So close my eyes and start again a new
