Don’t Forget To Breathe Lyrics:
“I’m not gonna die alone, I’m not gonna die like some poor lost soul, I’ll live forever and love myself.”
The lyrics of Don’t Forget to Breathe are very interesting. They say that they want to live forever and love themselves.
This means that they will never feel pain or regret because they won’t have any feelings at all. If you think about it, this is quite strange.
How can someone be so free from feeling? Isn’t life supposed to bring us happiness and joy? And if one doesn’t feel anything then how do they expect to ever enjoy life?
But there’s another side of the story. These lyrics could mean that these people are living without fear and with no regrets.
But what does it really mean when we use such words? What is meant by “living forever”? Does it mean living forever in the sense of being immortal? Or is it referring to something else entirely?
We must remember that the word “forever” is used throughout the lyrics of Don’t Forget to Breathe.
So how can we interpret these lyrics in context?
Is this person saying that they want to live forever, but they aren’t actually talking about immortality. Instead, they’re talking about a state where everything would be perfect and nothing would bother them. There would be no fear and no regret.
What would it really feel like to live in a state like that?
I can’t say for sure, but it sounds like a nice idea.
Now, what does this have to do with the meaning of Don’t Forget to Breathe?
Well, let’s put it this way. The lyrics are not only about immortality or living forever. They’re also about not letting the dark emotions cloud your judgment. If you can live without these feelings then it might be better that way. I’m not saying that I want to become a psychopath, but living forever in the state that these lyrics describe would be very desirable indeed.
What does this mean for the story of Don’t Forget to Breathe?
Well, it’s quite obvious when you think about it. The singer of this song is saying that they want to live forever. Sure, they won’t feel regret or pain, but they won’t really experience the world in all its beauty and splendor either. I’m sure you could have a very happy life without experiencing sadness or pain. But not being able to experience love, sadness, fear, or any other real emotion would be a fate worse than death.
Here’s a bit more information about Don’t Forget to Breathe. In case you’re wondering who sings this song, it’s the lead singer of the band System of a Down.
He goes by the name Serj Tankian. The other members of the band are Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian, and John Dolmayan.
The original version of Don’t Forget to Breathe was in the Johnny Express movie. However, it wasn’t actually included in the soundtrack.
In addition, Don’t Forget to Breathe was re-released as a single with a new video. That’s the version that everyone knows today.
Don’t Forget to Breathe is not the only music video that Serj has done. In fact, he’s got quite a few interesting videos.
My favorite is Cigaro because it’s so odd. The premise of the video is that Serj has taken over a small town and he begins executing people for things like “Wasting electricity” and “Talking to a stranger”. I’m not really sure what the point of the video is, but it has lots of interesting special effects and violence. It’s certainly a very “artistic” music video.
