Breakdown
(Written by Steve De Piante)

You’re one step from the brink
Those who love you never think
That you struggle the way you do
That you struggle the way you do

When your curtain fell
I saw behind
I saw the scars on your neck line
I see the stars in your skyline

You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly before it gets good
You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly before it gets good, before it gets good
before it gets good

You better have a weapon in reach
I know these bastards, they won’t stop until they breach
They’re coming for your dreams they’ll leave you nothing
They’re coming for your dreams they’ll leave you nothing

You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly before it gets good
You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly before it gets good, before it gets good
Before it gets good

I’m your the hard choice you seem to avoid
I’m not gonna get out of your way
So you better rise up, from your noise
Rise up, from your noise
From your noise

You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly before it gets good
You gotta breakdown, breakdown to the ground
It’s gonna get ugly, before it gets good

Before it gets good, before it good
You gotta breakdown, you gotta break down
You gotta breakdown, you gotta breakdown
Now you pull back your hair
Pretending that you don’t care
