Lyrics
I'm like a child looking off in the horizon
I'm like an ambulance that's turning on the sirens
Oh, I'm still alive

I'm like a soldier coming home for the first time
I dodged a bullet and I walked across a landmine
Oh, I'm still alive

Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away

My way to you

I'm like a junkie tying off for the last time
I'm like a loser that's betting on his last dime
Oh, I'm still alive

I'm like a son that was raised without a father
I'm like a mother barely keeping it together
Oh, I'm still alive

Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away away

As I walked out on the ledge
Are you scared to death to live
I've been running all my life
Just to find a home that's for the restless
And the truth that's in the message
Making my way away away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I'm still breathing
Cause I'm still breathing on my own
My head's above the rain and roses
Making my way away

My way to you
Song Meaning
"I'd rather write something where my eyes are forward, not so much internal. I hope it makes people happy and creates a difference in some way, just by people recognizing themselves in the song." - Billie Joe (Rolling Stone, Aug. 11, 2016)

"A junkie on the verge of death, a gambler about to lose everything and a wounded soldier on the front lines are all characters in a slow-building, unsettling track. 'That was a very heavy song,' says Armstrong. 'Sometimes I run away from being too heavy. But sometimes it just comes out that way.' The chorus, 'I'm still breathing on my own' alludes to the fact that 'at some point, we're all going to have to be on life support,' says Armstrong. 'As time goes on, your thoughts get darker.'' (Track by Track Guide, Rolling Stone)
