lyrics

WHY CAN’T WE TRY AND GET THE PRESSURE OFF
BEFORE I GO AND MAKE ANOTHER
SCENE I CANNOT HANDLE THIS TODAY

I AM A MAN WHO WAKES DELERIOUS
IMMEDIATELY FURIOUS
WITH EVERY THING I SEEM TO SEE AND READ.

AND I CAN’T BREATHE, NO I CAN’T BREATHE.
SO MY HANDS ARE SHAKING. I KNOW ASPIRATION’S WHAT I NEED.

WITH ALL THE VARIABLES OF TIRED SHOWS AND ANGRY WRINKLED FURROWED BROWS.
COMPETE TO HAVE THEIR NAMES ALL ETCHED IN STONE.
I AM ALONE IN THIS INFERIOR,
REALITY’S MUCH DREARIER
THAN EVERYTHING WE LIVE TO DAY TO DAY.

AND I CAN’T BREATHE, NO ICAN’T BREATHE.
OH MY HANDS ARE SHAKING. I KNOW ASPIRATION’S WHAT I NEED.

AND WHEN I’M WORN. WHEN I’M WORN DOWN.
OH MY LOVE, CAN’T WE CALM DOWN.
TWO PLUS FOUR, MAKE A SIX GUN.
SO I’M TOLD
IT’S A LONG SHOT
A LONG SHOT
BETTER LOOK OUT FOR WHAT YOU GOT.
CAUSE THINGS CAN REALLY GO DOWNHILL FAST.

SO CAN’T WE MAKE UP ALL OUR MINDS ABOUT IT.
MAYBE SPEND SOME TIME WITH OUT A PURPOSE, POINT, KARMA, OR A CREED.
JUST TWO LOST SOULS WITH NOTHING MORE TO DO THAN CONJURE UP SOME ANCIENT GOD.
AND WRITE DOWN OUR OWN MYTHIC HISTORY.

THEN WE CAN BREATHE YEAH WE CAN BREATHE.
EVERYONE IS SHAKIN’
BUT I GOT SOME ASPRATION
I’M BREATHING WHAT YOU’RE MAKING.
FEELING INSPIRATED ASPIREE.
