For millions of years, in millions of homes
A man loved a woman, a child it was born
It learned how to hurt and it learned how to cry
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Dishes in the sink
The tv's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do

I work and I sleep and I dance and I'm dead
I'm eatin, I'm laughin and I'm lovin myself
I never watch tv except when I'm stoned
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Dishes in the sink
The tv's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do

I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out
So slip inside this funking house
Wiggle while you work
Anybody can
The rain is pourin in on a woman and a man

I'm achin'
I'm shakin'
I'm breakin'
Like humans do
I'm breathing in
I'm breathing out

    General CommentThis song is about the strange things us humans do. "Strange?" You ask, "Whats so strange about humans"? Well, look at it this way... our ways are VERY different when compared to the rest of this planet. Completely strange when compared to all of the other animals... is our way really the earthly way? Hell no! The real earthly way is to hunt, chase, kill and eat some other animal, right there on the spot! Raw, not cooked! Off the ground, not on plates! Yet, we live a completely different lifestyle compared to the rest of this planet which may or may not be a good thing...

    Humans are a strange race indeed.
