BREAKIN’ DOWN MY MIND

02 Breakin Down My Mind

Grew up on promise of American dreams
I’m a perfect example of a broken routine
Well I found shortcuts and secrets and shame
but I can’t beat the game

(And all I know is)
I could never compete with the over ambitious
Couldn’t lie to your face, babe I can’t be that vicious
And I am breakin’ down, watch my country but I don’t understand

They say there’s that nothing you can’t do…

You can’t say that things have never been better
But it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.

What ever happened to the stories we would tell
When a yard was the world and a phone call was a yell
And cigarettes were gold and drinkin’ was for the day

(And all I know is)
I could drive all week on a twenty dollar tank
I had too many lovers, too much money in the bank
I had too much faith in it all or not nearly enough

And they say that you couldn’t be so strong and I said HA! babe I’m long long gone…

You can’t say that things have never been better
But it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.

Can you plug me in?
oh no no
Can you plug me in?
oh no no

You can’t say that things have never been better
but it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.
