Pink Floyd - Breathe Lyrics

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave, don't leave me
Look around, choose your own ground

Long you live and high you fly
Smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
When at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one

Long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
Balanced on the biggest wave
Race towards an early grave

    *Hudson's Bay, BlackJack TM gum, and Cephalus, On the Weight of the Intellectual*
    Ask any fur trapper what intellectualism and wealth is, and he will say it is bait for his traps in order to gain his own, so, he chases wealth in order to buy time so that he can transcend sacrifices to the gods and common justices, in order to become an intellectual, then when he gets there they have all disposed of their wealth in order to transcend it because it is known to the wealthy intellectual that wealth stands opposed to it, and what is intellectualism but like an exclusive club of paper and ideas? So, the poor intellectual sees the back door and goes right in giving him time to understand and rejects the wealthy right away. Then he begins his journey of wealth and begins to own them both, and realized the journey is large so he prepares. So, why do the wealthy stand opposed later to intellectualism? Because they realize they worked themselves into a corner and the club rejects their ticket. What is a musician but like a modern-day fur trapper baiting a trap and trying to transcend to the wealthy in order to become an intellectual? A complex lifestyle inhibits learning, so the wealthy seek areas and builds dens to study but his wealth and business give him little time to pursue it so he fails because the intellectual areas are too vast to pursue. So, what is the solution? Without understanding a person becomes dreary and confused in time and without money he becomes ill and tired and they both realize the intellectual journey is too vast. The solution is that the intellectual enjoys his journey and pursues it like any other enjoyment such as food or craftmanship. He becomes an addict or a gum chewer and never puts down his office because he cannot live without it. The others see the illusion and it is all-encompassing and lives in every territory so they must chew gum themselves. They look out the window and the world is all riding a bicycle and they are afraid. The intellectual begins to also transcend justice and the sacrifices to the gods and he looks back and sees that many have no gum or no bicycle. So, how does one begin to enjoy, in order to transcend the common justices?

  23. Nancy Demoss

    Far away across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken
    Magic spell.
    Always sends chills down my spine.
    Especially when she sings.

  24. TheSegacampGamer and Werecamp

    I'm so used to hearing Time that the Final Verse in this Song was also used in Time I'm kind of Creeped out hearing it again in this but other than that this does make Good Transition to Great Gig in the Sky since Time would Transition into that Song!

    SCP Intelligence Agency

    Same, it does sound similar to Time

  25. Brian Warmuth

  30. Will Mac

    This version, or mix, sounds a little different

  31. Forest Denizen

    I discovered this album in 1988. I was a young teenager and my father was restoring VW Bugs in his spare time. He bought one from a female University student who had just graduated and was moving back home.

    She left some things in the car and was meant to return for them but never did.

    Included DSOTM cassette. As I rummaged through her stuff (some keys with a leather Fob, some cassettes, random junk) months later, the scent of her perfume still hung on her possessions and somehow compelled my lovestruck teenage boy's mind (I had never even seen her) to play his strange and unknown tape.

    Needless to say, I was blown away.

    Thanks unknown and sweet smelling older student girl, I still sometimes think of you when listening and wonder where you are.

  32. Sutterjack

    8:37. "I never said I was afraid of dying..."

  33. Orion M42

    If you heard a whisper of such which most of us do, it means we are passing. And we start to dye the moment we are born, that is why we thrive to live.

  55. Chicken Plays


    I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years
    Been over the edge for yonks
    Been working me buns off for bands
    I've always been mad, I know I've been mad like most of us are
    Very hard to explain why you're mad
    Even if you're not mad

    Breathe, breathe in the air
    Don't be afraid to care
    Leave, but don't leave me
    Look around, choose your own ground

    For long you live and high you fly
    And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
    And all you touch and all you see
    Is all your life will ever be

    Run, rabbit, run
    Dig that hole, forget the sun
    And when at last the work is done
    Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one

    For long you live and high you fly
    But only if you ride the tide
    And balanced on the biggest wave
    You race towards an early grave

    Home, home again
    I like to be here when I can
    And when I come home cold and tired
    It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
    Far away across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spells

    I am not afraid of dying
    Any time will do, I don't mind
    Why should I be afraid of dying?
    There's no reason for it
    You've gotta go some time

    Oooaaaaoooaaaaaooaoooaaaaaaahhhaaaaooooooaaaaahhoooaaahaaaaahhhaaaaoaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaoooaahooaaaaaoooaahaaaaaaaaaahaaaahaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaahaaaahaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaahaaaaaaoooaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaahaaaaahaaaaaaahaooooohaaooohaaaaooooohaaaoooohaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaah, aoh, ooh

    Ooooooooooh, Ooooooooooooh

    I never said I was afraid of dying

    Ooooh, oooooh, ooooooooooaaaaaaoooaaaahaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaah
