"The Faster I Breathe the Further I Go" as written by and Harvey,polly Jean....
I'm walking outside and
Your headlights are blindin'
I'm walking on Bleaker
The street of no cheer
Yellow cabs drivin'
I'm taking a ride in
The panic, the laughter
The stink of disaster, disaster, disaster

The faster
The faster I'm breathing
The further I'm sinking
My head aches
My mouth dry
It feels like it's wartime

The heat and the traffic
There's hell on this planet
It's spinning much faster
Disaster disaster

Disaster disaster
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
Let's walk down on sideroads
Let's walk in the shadows
There's lovers
They're kissing
I see something missing
He's waiting to take her
I don't even rate her
Loving and loving
I hear the flies buzzing

Faster faster faster faster faster faster faster faster
I'm berathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
(Keep walking)
I'm breathing
(Keep walking)
I'm breathing

    General CommentOne of Polly's best b-sides. I have a fond memory of listening to this song while walking home one summer night.
