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 funky 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 loving 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 funky 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 funky house
Wiggle while you work
Anybody can
The rain is pouring 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
