Welcome To The Breakdown

 

All hail the jester has landed

In flyover country he sings

We're charmed like a snake in a basket

We should be coiled up and ready to spring

Raising a cross just to burn it

The clergy are selling their souls

Clearing a path, ignoring the facts

Intoxicated by the throne

 

But we'll be standing here holding our ground come what may

Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

 

Welcome to the breakdown

Welcome to the end of the road

Welcome to the breakdown

And we've got nowhere else to go

 

When we all go deaf in the chamber of echoes

Cheering the missile parade

Agreeing to let all the banks rob the people

Together we circle the drain

 

We'll be standing here holding our ground come what may

Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

 

Welcome to the breakdown

Welcome to the end of the road

Welcome to the breakdown

And we've got nowhere else to go

Welcome to the breakdown

Welcome to the end of the road

This is a breakdown

And we've got nowhere else to go

 

It's a game, you've been played

It's a flock, you're the sheep

It's a pied piper song that has lulled you to sleep

It's a lie and you fell for it, hook line and sinker

A hand that you shook that then gave you the finger

A fraud and a fake, a cowardly king

A lie to your face, but you still kiss the ring

This is the breakdown, this is the breakdown

This is the breakdown!

 

We are standing here holding our ground come what may

Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

 

Welcome to the breakdown

Welcome to the end of the road

This is a breakdown

And we've got nowhere else to go

Welcome to the breakdown

Welcome to the end of the road

This is a breakdown

And we've got nowhere else to go

 

It's not much but this is home

And there's nowhere else to go!
