The Breakdown
by Cory B. Wigal (BMI)

I don't have much on me
loose change and a set of keys
Trouble up to my knees
And the water's rising

Torn-up like a magazine
More broke than a broke-down cash machine
But I shake it off like a tambourine and keep on rising
Keep on rising

Hey, come on up for the breakdown
It's a soul search shakedown
Put your fists up or you'll end up, messed up face down
It's a hard knock living
But I'mma go down swingin
Gonna dig in, for the fall out, ‘til you hear me singing

Heartache isn't meant to last
Let it test you like a polygraph
Get strong move on let it pass
Keep on climbing

Let pain take its toll on me
But pain ain't got no hold on me
No pain can't take control of me
No running or hiding
Just keep on fighting

Hey, come on up for the breakdown
It's a soul search shakedown
Put your fists up or you'll end up, messed up face down
Hey, it's a hard knock living
But I'mma go down swingin
Gonna dig in, for the fall out, ‘til you hear me singing

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (x3)

Hey, come on up for the breakdown
Good luck with the takedown
Gonna stand up, gonna man up, ‘til you end up face down
Hey, it's a hell of a living
if up is all your giving
Going all out, for the fall out, ‘til you hear me singing
(repeat chorus)
Do you hear me singing?
Do you hear me singing?
Can you hear me singing?

about

The New Schematics Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first 15 months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. It is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist). ... more
