I was walking alone on the ocean
I felt a fever burning up all I am
'Cause if there's one thing that I can't stand
It's standing next to my fellow man, ah

It's about to break, oh

For the social worker at the needle exchange
For the soft medicated and the hard deranged
For the lesbians at the bakery
Saying, "Do you really hate me?"

It's about to break

Break like a fever
It's about to break
Break like a fever

People looking for themselves without mirrors
Well, not knowing why you're here
Public appearance is the verge of tears
When you're out, you get off on weed and beer

Stand up now, let me look at you
Can we all take a part of you?
Stand up now, let me look at you
Can we all take a part of you?

You're dangerous with a stinger, missile
Weapons hot, thinking this will
We won't make them follow orders
Doctors without borders

It's about to break
It's about to break
Break like a fever

When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race
(Break like a fever)
You're beautiful, it's true, I wanna be beautiful life you
When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race

For the teenage mother with the baby asleep
For apricot when life is cheap
For losing faith
America fades into myth
