"Breakdown"

[Verse 1]
We all come in from the cold
We come down from the wire
An' everybody warms themselves to a different fire
'N' 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

[Verse 2]
Just like children hiding in a closet
Can't tell what's going on outside
Sometimes, we're so far off the beaten track
We 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

[Verse 3]
When I look around
An' 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

[Chorus]
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

[Solo]

[Verse 4]
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 your needs?
Like when we both knew we had it
Now, the damage's done
And we're back out on the run
Funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns
Just because you're winnin' don't mean you're the lucky one

[Chorus]

[Verse 5]
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

[Outro]
But it is written
If the evil spirit arms the tiger with claws
Brahman provided wings for the dove
Thus spake the super guru
D'you hear that?
