Let's start
Let's start with the lungs that won't work
That won't breathe while the acid climbs
Burning its way up
Still breathing fire, I'm still breathing flames
Don't seem to be changing

What can you find when there's nothing to see through?
How can sing when there's nothing to speak through?
How can you breathe when your body's working against you?

Move on
Move on to the heart that won't beat in rhythm
It shakes and stutters, losing its pace
And I'm still breathing fire
I'm still breathing flames
When will it be changing?

What can you find when there's nothing to see through?
How can sing when there's nothing to speak through?
How can you breathe when your body's working against you?
What can you find when there's nothing to see through?
How can sing when there's nothing to speak through?
How can you breathe when your body's working against you?

Against you
Against you
Your eyes are burning
There's a smokescreen to see through
Don't be content to wait till they save you
You just breathe
Close those eyes and take a deep breath
And know you'll make it if you just let yourself
You can breathe

What can you find when there's nothing to see through?
How can sing when there's nothing to speak through?
How can you breathe when your body's working against you?
What can you find when there's nothing to see through?
How can sing when there's nothing to speak through?
How can you breathe when your body's working against you?

Life is hard enough without these complications
Don't let them wear away the core of your ambition
Your hopeful spirit
