Breakdown

Album: Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces (2007)
  • The sun is down and the flowers rot
    Words are spaces between us
    And I should have been drown in the rivers I found of token lost
    And I should have been down when you made me insecure

    So break me down if it makes you feel right
    And hate me now if it keeps you alright
    You can break me down if it takes all your might
    Because I'm so much more than meets the eye

    And I'm the one you can never trust
    Because wounds are ways to reveal us
    And yeah I could have tried and devoted my life to both of us

    But what a waste of my time when the world we had was yours

    So break me down if it makes you feel right (so break me down)
    And hate me now if it keeps you alright (so break me down)
    You can break me down if it takes all your might
    Because I'm so much more than all your lies

    Hate me, break me down (so break me down)
    So break me down if it makes you feel right (so break me down)
    And hate me now if it keeps you alright (so break me down)
    You can break me down if it takes all your might
