    Lyrics

    I look out to the fields
    Where blood is shed upon the ground
    I breathe in, breathe out
    Change the channel, mute the sound
    I take a match, a cigarette, and a walk to clear my head
    My stomach's reeling at the thought of all those human beings dead

    I breathe in, breathe out
    And go to do an interview
    About a song, three minutes long
    I just need something to do
    Especially when my dearest friend
    Was sent to cover Kosovo
    His last assignment brought a bullet
    And now he's gone, he's gone

    Feels like I'm fiddling while Rome is burning down
    Should I lay my fiddle down, take a rifle from the ground
    I need the ghost to breathe a northern gale tonight
    Cause I'm paralyzed, I'm paralyzed

    I packed his books up, left the office
    Went to tell the wife the news
    She fell in shock, the baby kicked, and shed a tear inside the womb
    I breathed in, breathed out
    Soak the ground up with my eyes
    It's hard to say a healing word
    When your tongue is paralyzed

    Feels like I'm fiddling while Rome is burning down
    Should I lay my fiddle down, take a rifle from the ground
    I need the ghost to breathe a northern gale tonight
    Cause I'm paralyzed, I'm paralyzed

    I breathe in, and breathe out
    I breathe in, and breathe out
    I breathe in, and breathe out
