Heartbeats

Sam Brown

I can take you downtown, where everything is brown
But the people there don't care
'Cos love is all around
You might think it's ugly, but somebody once told me
Acceptance is harmony
And I feel okay
At least for today
 
You can breathe the air if you want to
But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you
You can eat that food, but you don't know where it's been
You can leave this dirty old world that we're living in
But where will you go and anyway
You only have so many heartbeats
 
The revolution's coming, everybody thinks for themselves
There's a nation humming
A tune that I know well
In the middle of commotion, everybody's chasing their tails
There's a single-minded notion
It's all coming to us
Don't make such a fuss
You can breathe the air if you wan tot
But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you
You can eat that food, but you don't know where it's been
You can leave this dirty old world that we're living in
But where will you go and anyway
You only have so many heartbeats
 
Only in the morning when I reach for my mask
Only then I wish this breath could be my last
 
You can breathe the air if you wan tot
But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you
You can eat that food, but you don't know where it's been
You can leave this dirty old world that we're living in
But where will you go and anyway
You only have so many heartbeats
