Breakdown – Sunday 8th December 1996


breakdown, no way round
when you arrived at the edge
you should have slowed right down
breakdown in every way
scared me half to death
there is no way i am getting involved
extreme people need extreme people
suddenly i am a 'straight'
in a world i do not know
and if feel okay
breakdown in the true sense
who is going to fix you
i am certainly not to miss you
some people cause a stare
just as some put on a front
you are beyond repair
your world is not my world
and i can live with that
but i know i am not broken down
my past does not leave me trapped
needing what i really least need
broken down, and i not going anywhere
breakdown, i see
