DAN BERN


Breathe Lyrics

Now a couple years ago
I told everybody
That I was the Messiah come to save them
They started lining up with babies to be blessed
The sick and the lame, blocking the pavement
I walked on water and OK sank
Turned wine into whisky and drank, drank, drank

Now with just a couple Snickers and some corn meal mush
I fed six thousand at a time
I spoke in St. Louie, ya gotta play St. Louie
St. Louie, it's a rule of some kind
The blind came to me and I made 'em see
Got the deaf diggin' hi-fidelity
Card tricks, I could do card tricks you wouldn't
believe

There's nothing innocent about a newborn babe
That a few years here can't cure
And it's not so much that you burn out
Baby but you finally just endure

Now to tell you the truth, lately even I
Start to get a little overwhelmed
Wars and pain and poverty
Those have been around a long time
But the oceans rise and the fresh water dies
And the hate sticks harder to your insides
And the cars get bigger and the smoke churns out
And your idols fall and you lie a little better

And the train gets further and further off the track
And with each day passing it's harder to turn back
They call Mother Earth "Mother" for a reason
She will revolt

Stop...
Stop what you're doing...
Stop what you're doing and breathe
Stop what you're doing and breathe

Eatin' hamburgers, corporate mergers
Speakin' in tongues, burnin' your lungs
Drinkin' a Coke, repeating some joke
Kissin' the ring, Buffalo wings
Honkin' your horn, internet porn
Takin' the pill, writing your will

Stop what you're doing and breathe
Stop what you're doing and breathe
Stop what you're doing and breathe...
