Breakdown

     We all come in from the cold
     We come down from the wire
     An everybody warms themselves
     to a different fire
     When sometimes we get burned
     You'd think sometime we'd learn
     The one you love is the one
     That should take you higher
     You ain't got no one
     You better go back out and find her

     Just like children hidin' in a closet
     Can't tell what's goin' on outside
     Sometimes we're so far off the beaten track
     We'll get taken for a ride
     By a parlor trick or some words of wit
     A hidden hand up a sleeve
     To think the one you love
     could hurt you now
     Is a little hard to believe
     But everybody darlin' sometimes
     Bites the hand that feeds

     When I look around
     Everybody always brings me down
     Well is it them or me
     Well I just can't see
     But there ain't no peace to found
     But if someone really cared
     Well they'd take the time to spare
     A moment to try and understand
     Another one's despair
     Remember in this game we call life
     That no one said it's fair

     BREAKDOWN
     Let me hear it now
     BREAKDOWN
     let me hear it now
     Yeah
     BREAKDOWN
     Let me hear it now
     BREAKDOWN
     let me hear it now
     Get down with yo' bad self
     Alright

     I've come to know the cold
     I think of it as home
     When there ain't enough of me
     To go around
     I'd rather be left alone
     But if I call you out of habit
     I'm out of love and I gotta have it
     Would you give it to me
     If I fit you needs
     Like when we both knew we had it
     But now the damage's done
     And we're back out on the run
     Fun how ev'rything was Roses
     When we held on to the Guns
     Just because you're winnin'
     Don't mean you're the lucky ones

     BREAKDOWN
     Let me hear it now
     BREAKDOWN
     Yeah
     BREAKDOWN
     BREAKDOWN
     let me hear it now

     "There goes the challenger being chased
     By the blue blue meanies on wheels
     The vicious traffic squad cars are
     After our lone driver
     The last American hero
     The-the electric sintar
     The demi-god,
     The super driver of the golden west!
     Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind
     The beautiful lone driver
     The police cars are getting closer-closer...
     Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile- Yeah baby!
     They about to strike, They gonna get him, SMASH! RAPE!
     The last beautiful free soul on this planet

     But...it is writen if the Evil Spirit
     Arms the Tiger with claws
     Brahman provided wings for the Dove
     Thus spake the Super Guru" *
     "Did you hear that"
