How Dare I Breathe

In every ocean, there’s a current turning
Burning in its pride
To learn too late
There’s no escape
From the fate
Of the human tide
God knows I’ve tried
But now all of this commotion is just floating a disease
Beneath the glimmer of this pilot light
That burns but until our release
I’ve said my piece…

I gotta sell it to you
You gotta shove it at me
And now I see
You still got your evil eye on me
How dare I breathe?
How dare I speak?
How dare I scream
As I see that the rage is inside of me?
Can’t raise my arms,
Defend my name
Excuse me while I walk away

Pile of community chest cards at the side of the road
Warheads galore
One is bound to explode
Go directly to jail
You like to keep me under your fingernail
Sitting on a throne just gazing at your diamond abode
A voyeur tuned into a new episode
And in a Nielsen hour
The group dynamic seems to spiral down
And all these rules we learn to follow
Steadfast to a living hell
Remember that the truth you swallow
Is laced with poison lies as well

And I gotta sell it to you
You gotta shove it at me
And now I see
You still got your evil eye on me
How dare I breathe?
How dare I speak?
How dare I scream
As I see that the rage is inside of me?
Can’t raise my arms,
Defend my name
I’m just the same as you
We’re just the same
Excuse me while I walk away
How dare I breathe?
How dare I speak?
How dare I cry?
How dare I?

Excuse me while I walk away
