Like Humans Do. David Byrne. Produced by Michael Mangini. Album Look Into the Eyeball. Like Humans Do Lyrics. I'm achin' I'm shakin' I'm breakin' like Humans do I'm achin' I'm shakin' I'm breakin' like Humans do. I work and I sleep and I dance and I'm dead I'm eatin', I'm laughin', I'm lovin' myself I never watch TV except when I'm stoned Like humans do. I'm breathing in I'm breathing out So slip inside this funky house Dishes in the sink The TV's in repair Don't look at the floor Don't go up the stairs

A track from David Byrne's 2001 album Look into the Eyeball, the song was also featured on the former Talking Heads frontman's 2007 Live from Austin, Texas LP and DVD.
