lyrics

"Oxygen Mask”
words and music by Chris Knudson

INTRO

VERSE
Are we descending?
Seems like something’s gone terribly wrong
Long ago we gave up our celestial birthright
Trading wings in for our songs.

PRE-CHORUS
Should the cabin have a sudden pressure loss
Stay calm and listen for instructions from the crew
Pull the mask securely down first upon your face
So you can then assist the ones who need you.

VERSE
You said you felt like we were cruising
Safe and secure in our puddle-jumping interludes
But my dream was pushing body past its old designs
Beyond the fuel addiction moods

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS
BREATHE DEEP, YOU ARE RECEIVING
ALL THE LOVE THE UNIVERSE HAS GOT TO GIVE
HEART BEATS TO THE FEELING
OF WALKING LIGHTLY WHERE YOU LIVE

SOLO

VERSE
In the infinite hereafter
There is only present love
But in these moments when we fear we’ve lost control
Pull the mask down from above (from within).

REPEAT CHORUS (2x)

Kanude Austin, Texas

Kanude is the artist name for singer/songwriter Chris Knudson (who pronounces the "K" in his last name) primarily from the mid-2000s to the present, while based in Texas, California, Oregon and Virginia. File under: rock, americana, plant medicine, americronica. It has nothing to do with a small boat with paddles, but entirely something to do with an old Scandinavian English king... perhaps. ... more
