Breakdown Lyrics

8. Breakdown (5:12)
Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

I never saw the tears but I knew you cried for rhythm 'n' blues
Screaming like a wildcat I knew that I had nothing to lose
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told.

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown

Shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away
Never see me fall on the ground till I've had my say
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
It's just a breakdown

Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock 'n' roll, couldn't make your soul,
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendour
In stealing all your gold,
Taking all your silver
And doing what I'm told

It's just a breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown,
Breakdown
