I can't take one breath
Without breathing in the smog
I guess that's just the way things are
When you're living in the fog

I can't catch a break
From these artificial thoughts
They haunt me in my sleep,
Even my dreams are being bought

You think you'd see me through,
I'm transparent as a ghost
Float around these goddamn streets
Like I died sometime ago

So who gets to breathe and who gets to seethe?
I guess it depends on what you believe

I can't take one breath
Without breathing in the smog
All this dust, it piles up
I feel it in my lungs

I can't catch my breath
Running at this pace
Running out of breaths to take
And I'm running out of space

I cannot alleviate this stress
It's wrapped around my neck
I'm terribly afraid that I'll feel this way forever
And conceal it 'till I'm dead

Shut my eyes again
Forget where I am
Down these pills 'cause I feel ill
But it's better to pretend

Breathing doesn't feel like breathing all the time
