"My Breathing" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
Assassination of the voice of God
I don't know if I can do it
I've found the problem and the problem's you
I'm here to pick up the pieces.


You won't remember me but I do you
I told you that I would come back
Everything will be decided here
They can read it in the papers.


Your breathing haunts me
My breathing?
The sleeproom still waits for me.


Join the army you can see the world
I remember this one patrol
Been liberating river towns
And we picked up the sex skin crawl.


We would sing the new leader's song
Everyone invented stories
The connection was a fragile thing
Far too many distractions.


I've been listening to the new 'DJ'
What's all this 'original' con?
We all live in the same museum
We all rearrange the same old song.


Assassination by the radio
I don't know if they can do it
I've found the problem and the problem's 'One'
I'm here to pick up the pieces.

    General CommentI tend not to like the songs Numan wrote about the press hating him, but this one's a little different. The arabic sounding music and the lyrics that actually have some depth to them make a pleasant difference to the rest of the Strange Charm album.

    General CommentNuman singing about being famous again. Great sounding song. He should have done a entire album featuring exotic music like this, instead of the same old electro funk he was doing at that time...and long afterwards.
