"This Air We Breathe" it's about a relationship that doesn't work out. You want to run away from that person, but your inconditional love to them makes it hard for you to run away. I hope you all can relate to it.

I could say that everything’s perfect

But I’d be lying to myself

I could say that I’m completely happy

But I’d be fooling myself

What does it take to be good enough for you?

What do you want in order to be proud?

What can I do to keep you happy for at least one day?

 

These walls we’ve built

How can I tear them down?

This air we breathe

How can I make it pure again?

 

I’ve searched for answers

Never been found

I’ve searched for solutions

But they don't exist.

 

I’m tired of pretending something we’re not

I’m sick of these appearances surrounding us

Sick of you, sick of your judgments, sick of your carelessness

 

This air we breathe

Is contaminated with your hollow words

And it’s intoxicating my feelings

It’s damaging my pride

It’s killing my hope

 

This air we breathe

Might be too late to be purified

As it already killed with its toxic gas

Everything we ever had, everything we ever wanted.
