Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock `n` roll, couldn't make your soul
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendor
In stealing all your gold
Taking all your silver
And doing what I`m told

I never saw the tears but I knew you cried for rhythm `n` blues
Screaming like a wildcat I knew that I had nothing to lose
Shot you full of rock `n` roll, couldn't make your soul
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendor
In stealing all your gold
Taking all your silver
And doing what I`m told

It`s just a breakdown
Breakdown
Breakdown
Breakdown

Shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away
Never see me fall on the ground till I've had my say
Shot you full of rock `n` roll, couldn't make your soul
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendor
In stealing all your gold
Taking all your silver
And doing what I`m told

It`s just a breakdown
Breakdown
Breakdown
It`s just a breakdown

Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
Shot you full of rock `n` roll, couldn't make your soul
Didn't burn you to the bone
Do what the man says, take the money and run

But, I never saw the splendor
In stealing all your gold
Taking all your silver
And doing what I`m told

It`s just a breakdown
Breakdown
