Broken Down, In Broken Town
Call the lifeguard,
To watch me drown
Send the boys around
I'm Broken down
In Broken Town.

My CV,
Says I watch TV.
I haven't worked,
Since 1993
Send the boys for me
I'm broken down
In Broken Town

In Broken Town,
Where nothing ever works,
It gets into your veins
And stains your shirts
Blinds your ambition
And kicks it to death
Tunnels into your vision,
Till nothing is left

Child overboard,
Child ignored
In a childrens ward,
1994
1994
Life's too short,
For a life support.
That's broken down,

In broken town,
Where nothing ever works
Mispent youth on the roof of a church.
Your birthdays are belated
Your toys are dead
Board, frustrated and poisoned with lead

I don't want to stagger into mental health
Following a shadow of my former self
If only I believed that I could break away
But I know I'll never leave
And so I guess I'll stay…Forever
Broken Down, In Broken Town.
