Matthew Good lyrics

Breath of a Nation

this pit of land [??]
the air don't breathe
down the streets crawl the prizes
of love's defeat
we're family but there's not relation
just the breath of a nation

baby, don't you go wasting away
cause to me you were always something
baby, don't you go wasting away
cause to me you were always something

sleep on your back
steal inner space
relieved of this attack
don't you fall aside in the game
relieved of this attack
don't you fall aside in the game
all side in the game [??]

get it right
packed up to leave
you escape over, over the mountains
to the golden calf
drugged to dream
trapped under lights and makeup
[seventies ???]

baby, don't you go wasting away
cause to me you were always something
baby, don't you go wasting away
cause to me you were always something

what you put in you get out of it
once you gonna sink you gotta swim
i wake, a solitary boy
what you put in you get out of it
once you gonna sink you gotta swim
i wake, a solitary boy
what you put in you get out of it
once you gonna sink you gotta swim
i wait, a solitary boy
