Turbulence in the Belfry

Respiration - who's to blame? [P]

Let us know that tyrant's name! [Roland]

Day and night we have to breathe [KT]

Even if our name is Keithe [Rob]

Breath -- Dunamis -- Paraclete [E Greejius]

Double hyphens - - ain't that sweet! [TG]

Stop for breath? Don't break your stride [E Greejius]

Breath out quickly, horrified! [P]

In asthmatic states of grace [E Greejius]

Fastest breather wins the race [TG]

Search that windpipe! Steal that lung! [Roland]

Force that air back past the tongue! [TG]

Make that epiglottis swing [Roland]

And the larynx fit to sing [KT]

Respiration! Who'd deny [Roland]

Without it we would surely die?! [P]
