Lyric "Breathing"

Outside
Gets inside
Through her skin
I've been out before
But this time it's much safer in

Last night in the sky
Such a bright light
My radar send me danger
But my instincts tell me to keep

Breathing
("Out, in, out, in, out, in")
Breathing
Breathing my mother in
Breathing my beloved in
Breathing
Breathing her nicotine
Breathing
Breathing the fall-out in
Out in, out in, out in, out in

We've lost our chance
We're the first and the last, ooh
After the blast
Chips of Plutonium
Are twinkling in every lung

I love my
Beloved, ooh
All and everywhere
Only the fools blew it
You and me
Knew life itself is

Breathing
("Out, in, out, in, out")
Breathing
Breathing my mother in
Breathing my beloved in
Breathing
Breathing her nicotine
Breathing
Breathing the fall-out in
Out in, out in, out in, out in
Out in, out in, out in, out...
("Out!")

"In point of fact it is possible to tell the
("Out!") difference between a small nuclear explosion and
A large one by a very simple method
The calling card of a nuclear bomb is the blinding flash that
Is far more dazzling than any light on earth--brighter
Even than the sun itself--and it is by the duration
Of this flash that we are able to determine the size
("What are we going to do without?") of the weapon
After the flash a fireball can be seen to rise
Sucking up under it the debris, dust
And living things around the area of the explosion
And as this ascends, it soon becomes recognizable
As the familiar "mushroom cloud". As a demonstration
Of the flash duration test let's try and count the
Number of seconds for the flash emitted by a very
Small bomb; then a more substantial, medium-sized
Bomb; and finally, one of our very powerful
"high-yield" bombs

"What are we going to do without?"
Ooh please!
"What are we going to do without?"
Let me breathe!
"What are we going to do without?"
Ooh, Quick!
"We are all going to die without!"
Breathe in deep!
"What are we going to die without?"
Leave me something to breathe!
"We are all going to die without!"
Oh, leave me something to breathe!
"What are we going to do without?"
Oh, God, please leave us something to breathe!"
"We are all going to die without
Oh, life is--Breathing
