Sixteen of June, nine-oh-five, door bell rings Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer There's three things I need you to know Three  Coming from a long line of traveling sales people on my mother's side
I wasn't gonna buy just anyone's cockatoo So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home Would you
 These days are better than that These days are better than that
 Every day I die again, and again I'm reborn Every day I have to find the courage To walk out into the street With arms out
Got a love you can't defeat Neither down nor out
There's nothing you have that I need
I can breathe Breathe now
 Sixteen of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I'm coming down with some new Asian virus
Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man
Doc says you're fine, or dying Please
Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line, my pulse is fine
But I'm running down the road like loose electricity While the band in my head plays a striptease 
The roar that lies on the other side of silence The forest fire that is fear so deny it

Walk out into the street Sing your heart out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out
There's nothing you have that I need
I can breathe Breathe now

We are people borne of sound The songs are in our eyes Gonna wear them like a crown 
Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I've found grace inside a sound I found grace, it's all that I found And I can breathe Breathe now
