  • Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh

    Break it down again

    So those are my dreams
    And these are my eyes
    Stand tall like a man
    Headstrong like a horse

    When it's all mixed up
    Better break it down
    Oo, oo. Oo, oo
    In the world of secrets
    In the world of sound
    Oo, oo

    It's in the way you're always hiding from the light
    See for yourself, you have been sitting on a time bomb
    No revolution maybe someone somewhere else
    Could show you something new about you and your inner song

    And all the love, and all the love in the world
    Won't stop the rain from falling
    Waste sleeping underground (break it down again)
    I want to break it down (break it down again)

    Break it down again

    So those are my schemes
    And these are my plans
    Hot tips for the boys
    Fresh news from the force
    When it's all mixed up
    Better break it down
    Oo, oo. Oo, oo
    In the world of silence
    In the world of sound
    Oo, oo

    "No sleep for the dreaming" say the architects of life
    Big bouncing babies, bread and butter can I have a slice?
    They make no mention of the beauty of decay
    Blue, yellow, pink umbrella, save it for a rainy day

    And all the love, and all the love in the world
    Won't stop the rain from falling
    Waste sleeping underground (break it down again)
    I want to break it down (break it down again)

    Horsing around
    Pray to the power
    Play to the crowd with your big hit sound
    And they won't simmer Won't simmer
    Won't simmer down
    Play to the crowd
    Play to the crowd

    It's in the way you're always hiding from the light
    Last off to heaven just like moses on a motorbike
    No revolution maybe someone else somewhere else
    Could show you something new to help with the ups and downs

    Break it down again
    I want to break it down Break it down again
    Break it down again (break it down again)
    Break it down again (break it down again)

    Break it down again
    No more sleepy dreaming
    No more building up
    It is time to dissolve
    Break it down again
    No more sleepy dreaming Writer/s: ALAN GRIFFITHS, ROLAND ORZABAL

  • Linda from Atlantic CountyLove this emotional lead singer. Catchy intense tune.
  • Timothy from Aston, PaWhen I first heard this song back in 1993, I was probably one of many who thought they were saying "I touch little boys" in the one line, then I later found out they were really saying "Hot tips for the boys"!
  • Phiilp from Beer Town, Wii saw these guys (guy) at hollywood (FL) racetrack in 1994. they started their set by playing the first three songs on this album exactly in the order and the way they sound on the album.
