Track Name: Welcome to the Breakdown
Working up your week and the boss man says,
"Son, time to hit the dole queue".
Flat out on your back it's a hard knock,
I figure it's time to make some music.

Everybody moving and we don't stop,
Just mind the bite don't break your skin in a minute now.
Welcome to the Breakdown.

Everybody wondering where the cats gone baby,
Just mind the bite don't break your skin.
Time to make a plan, get the beat pumping,
Till then we'll be going nowhere.

Everybody moving and we don't stop,
Just mind the bite don't break your skin in a minute now.
Welcome to the Breakdown.

Fed up of lock down, we'll be breaking out,
Dancing with a screw loose.
Buzz is taking hold, now we're on a roll,
Welcome to the Breakdown.

Everybody moving and we don't stop,
Just mind the bite don't break your skin in a minute now.
Welcome to the Breakdown.
Track Name: Crossfire
Hello Princess.
What's my nature ?
Where's my welcome ?
Where'd that come from ?
You've been caught in the Crossfire between
My good intentions, my bad judgement their bad dreams.

Who's to say if they really meant it,
Or really saw it, or thought it, or felt it ?
Where's my princess,
My one and only ?
Devoured by something you've got no control over.

Life will get you down,
It'll turn your smile upside down,
When you've got nothing left to give
That's when your guts will bring you in.
Read it in lights and say goodnight
This is the part I'll take,
I'll break my heart on it.

We got lost inside our own little world.
And that's alright most of the time but we need to be careful.
When you're a little too precious,
When you're a little too sensitive
I take no notice, I take no notice.

Life will get you down,
It'll turn your smile upside down,
When you've got nothing left to give
That's when your guts will bring you in.
Read it in lights and say goodnight
This is the part I'll take,
I'll break my heart on it.
Track Name: Didn't Mean to Make You Cry
I think you're missing my meaning,
I think you talk without thinking sometimes,
No it's nothing really.
It's just a misunderstanding.

Babe I didn't mean to make you cry.
Babe I used to wonder why the earth moved,
Every time we said Goodbye.

What in the world caused all this difference?
What in the world caused all the pain?
How'd we move so far from home girl?
When what we had seemed so impervious to change?

Babe I didn't mean to make you cry.
Babe I used to wonder why the earth moved,
Every time we said Goodbye.

I want to talk about this,
I want to rage about it some more.
I want to break it open.
And see our love lost,
In bits and pieces on the floor.

Babe I didn't mean to make you cry.
Babe I used to wonder why the earth moved,
Every time we said Goodbye.
