Lyrics:

Breathe

Breathe and take it slow

"What's up with that" became
The Nations mood and motto
Mental escape is sold
In pills, sex, and bottles

You want a blast of bliss
A belly full and a tender kiss
I've heard from those who know
We've got to breathe and take it slow

Crazy rush rush - miss the bus, crash the plane
Sink the lifeboat, kill the trees, it's all insane
It's a private Armageddon, a personal revelation
I see a mass hypnosis of narcissistic psychosis

How does the rose bloom
With petals soft and thorns of pain
Where will we find the room
For all the souls who came
The pilot has lost the stars
He's blind and flying low
Let's put our wings together
Breathe and take it slow

Back up data - we remember and aspire
We've seen the rocks from space
Make craters smoke and fire
The Devils in the Holy Land
He parties long and strong
He loves a big show, baby
And our crap about right and wrong

Glory halleluiah
Praise the high and raise the low
I hear the story of this school, yeah
Is Breathe and take it slow
You want a blast of bliss
A belly full and a tender kiss
I've heard from those who know
We've got to breathe and take it slow
