All I want is to breathe

As VENUS in Virgo opposes NETUNE in PISCES Aug, 9 Venus rules the arts, music, creativity, beauty, human love and in Virgo perfection and health and Neptune in Pisces rules water, musicians, spirituality, surrender.

This 1980’s Talking Heads song should be the Covid-19, and whatever extra Greek letter mutations they tack on theme song.

Watch the amazing video performance, this must be one of the best live musical performances ever. Talking Heads live in ROME 1980

Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)

Talking Heads

Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands
The hand speaks
The hand of a government man
Well, I’m a tumbler
Born under punches
I’m so thin

All I want is to breathe
I’m too thin
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space
So we move in-between
In-between it
And keep one step ahead of yourself

Don’t you miss it, don’t you miss it
Some of you people just about missed it
Last time to make plans
And I’m a tumbler
I’m a government man Never seen anything like that before
Falling bodies tumble ‘cross the floor
Well, I’m a tumbler
When you get to where you wanna be
Thank you! Thank you!
When you get to where you wanna be
Well, don’t even mention it

Oh, take a look at these hands
They’re passing in-between us
Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands
You don’t have to mention it
No, thanks
I’m a government man And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on And the heat goes on
I got time
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on, where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on

I’m not a drowning man
And I’m not a burning building
I’m a tumbler
Drowning cannot hurt a man
Fire cannot hurt a man
Not the government man

All I want is to breathe
Thank you, thank you
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space
So we move in-between
I’m so thin
And keep one step ahead of yourself
I’m catching up with myself

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?
Hands of a government man
Find a little space
So we move in-between
And keep one step ahead of yourself
Don’t you miss it! Don’t you miss it!

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?
