about

'Oxide' is about how fear and uncertainty try to undermine your efforts to change. Those who can’t accept change often threaten to destroy everything. But you’ll never create a better future by wistfully looking at the past.

lyrics

New fears try to push you under
Draining you of all you seem
Old doubts try snuffing out
The spark that turns a thought into a dream

Can’t always resist feeling
The fear that uncertainty brings
But you’ve got to fight to stop
The rust that tries to tarnish everything

Show the world you’re still individual
Strong on the inside
Taking it in stride
Reaching for a life more unusual
Facing the outside
Free of this oxide layer

It’s easy to get caught up
Wishing how things could be
But looking into that broken mirror
Just distorts every single thing you see

Show the world you’re still individual
Strong on the inside
Taking it in stride
Reaching for a life more unusual
Facing the outside
Free of this oxide layer

You won’t get what you want with threats
To burn the whole house down
You won’t get what you want with violence
To raze everything to the ground
Maybe you don’t want to admit
You were lied to from first to last
Fire cleanses but fire lays waste
To everything in its path

There was a kind of corrosion
Acting inside and out
A rot trying to eat away
And contaminate throughout

There was a fear of the future
Repeating mistakes of the past
A set of chains that holds us back
From making a brand new start

There was a path through all of the madness
So the pain won’t last forever
A decision to stop looking over my shoulder
Taking each new step to make life better

Show the world you’re still individual
Strong on the inside
Taking it in stride
Reaching for a life more unusual
Facing the outside
Free of this oxide layer
