vertical line Food is heaven
As you can't go to heaven by yourself
Food is to be shared
Food is heaven

As you see the stars in heaven together
Food is to be shared by everybody
When the food goes into a mouth
Heaven is worshipped in the mind

Food is heaven
Ah, ah, food is
To be shared by everybody

Taking the term "bread" literally - if you are referring to the yeast used in the recipe, I'm not entirely sure it can be considered either sentimental or sentient. Busy, yes, and it has a very short life-span. If I thank the yeast, will it care?
