Battle For The Sun

Lyrics Placebo
Breathe Underwater

Here comes another fall from grace
I'm always falling on my face
This attitude that I embrace
For the love I'm trying to replace
I try to kill the song
'cause the melody's all wrong
And there's a fever coming on

It's hard to reconcile
What I've become
With the wounded child
Hiding deep inside

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
'Cause I've been floating here too long

Take my ego for a ride
'Cause there's nobody by my side
It's getting hard to justify
And it won't be long 'til I collide
My weakness is laid bare
As people stop and stare
But It's the last time I swear

It's hard to reconcile
What I've become
With the wounded child
Hiding deep inside

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
'Cause I've been floating here too long

Start breathing
Start breathing
Start breathing
Start breathing

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
'Cause I've been floating here too long

I'm coming
I'm coming
I'm coming, coming up for air
Coming up for air
Coming up for air
Press Quotes

(Translation, quote in French here)

When you sing: "It's hard to reconcile what I've become with the wounded child". It speaks to the teenagers...

Brian Molko
: I read in the English press, the great English press [laughs], an article about Michael Jackson. Basically, the emotional development of an artist would stop when he becomes famous. In the case of Michael Jackson, his emotional development would have been arrested around 10-12 years old. It can be why he is a confused adult, a more blossomed person in the childish universe. For me, it would be around 22-23 years old. And that's why I'm still a somewhat teenager. But it's the whole story of rock and roll: the quest for eternal adolescence. Look at Mick Jagger, we're all trying to be Peter Pan.
