Break It Down Again
Tears for Fears Lyrics


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

It's really my top
Tears album with the Hurting
Got me through a dark period after a jail
And they were few of only tapes I had whilst living in my truck
Roland!!!!! Genuis!

This is a great song, for sure. However, even though I was a child of the 70s and in my teens when TfF were at their pinnacle, I have never listened to one of their albums nor heard anything from them other than the singles. I may have to delve into them sooner or later.

Totally.

I know I'm kind of late to the party, but I had to interject on this, I don't see how ANYONE could label this song as underrated, I've been in and out of several states during the 90s as I was and still am a touring musician, and I distinctly remember not being able to walk 10 feet in any direction without hearing this song at least four times everyday from 1993 to 1998 on several radio stations, this song DEFINITELY got some airtime back in the day
