Just Let Me Breathe Lyrics

Open your eyes

And turn off your mind

Step right up folks and you will find

 

Agrowing trend

 

An epidemic

 

Spread with zen

 

And hypodermics

 

Just close your mind

You can find all you need with your eyes

 

The big machines take care of

You until you kill yourself

And then the sales go through the roof

Calculated formulated

Feed my head with simple thoughts

And let me breathe instead of being taught

All bottled up and tearing at the seams

I'm bored

Just let me breathe

 

A daily dose of eMpTyV

 

Will flush your mind right down the drain

 

Shannon Hoon and Kurt Cobain

 

Make yourself a household name

 

Just close your mind

You can find all you need with your eyes

 

The big machines take care of you

Until you kill yourself

And then the sales go through the roof

Calculated formulated

Feed my head with simple thoughts

And let me breathe instead of being taught

All bottled up and tearing at the seams

I'm bored

Just let me breathe

 

Strike up your best angst ridden posture

 

Manufactured anger

 

Let's not forget my legacy

 

All my heroes have failed me

 

Now they're dead and buried

 

Just close your mind

You can find all you need with your eyes

 

The big machines will take care of you

Until the fashion fades

And the checks go through

My bank roll's red and my face is blue

And still they'll turn their backs on you for

Someone new

 

Feed my head

With some real thoughts

And let me think instead

Of being taught

 

I'll say things

 

You won't believe

 

Just stand back

 

Just let me breathe
