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'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', I'm lovin' myself
We're eating off plates and we kiss with our tongue
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 an' don't go up the stairs

I'm achin', I'm shakin'
I'm breakin' like humans do
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
