lyrics

Breaking down again, do you feel alone?
Have you got nobody left to turn to?
Is this world just there to hurt you?
You don't have to be alone,
There's a million more that feel the same,
And each one's just a victim in this game,

This world's just not designed,
For people with a certain mind,
And anyone caught struggling, will get sedated,
By the ones with PHD's,
They'll make you feel like you're diseased,
Don't let them get inside your head,
Don't let them get inside your head,

Don't let them get the best of you,
Don't let them bring you down,
Don't let them get the best of you,
Don't let the bastards get you down,

You're not alone, you can't help how you feel,
This pain is real, it's hard to deal,
With anyone around you, when ignorance and lies surround you,
And oh, look, new medication,
Goodbye dreams and motivation,
Mind control through mass sedation,
Looks like it's time to up your dose,
And now they've got the upper hand,
Their plan, it's working like a charm,
No harm in wasting all your time,
Looks like it's time to fall in line,

It's a breakdown, just a metaphorical shakedown,
Mine come from living in K-town,
I'm trapped and I can't get out,
I'm doing the same thing every day,
I can't help thinking there's no better way,
I can't help thinking that I can't be saved,
I can't help drinking, and smoking,
And taking any substances, put in front of me,
Now tell me, do ya feel the same?

Don't let them tell you that you're broke, it's a joke,
It's enough to make you different, it's enough to make you choke,
Now you're choking down your meds, as your mind fills with dreads,
And all the stupid little thoughts start to populate your head,
Now you're searching for an answer in a box of pharmacuticals,
A couple more months and you'll be forced into a ritual,
And break the trend, and you'll get the shakes,
And every step you take, just feels like an earthquake,

DON'T LET THEM GET INSIDE YOUR MIND,
DON'T LET THEM GET INSIDE YOUR MIND,
Don't let them say you're broken,
You're just a fucking human being,
DON'T LET THEM GET INSIDE YOUR MIND,

Aww fuck,
They've got you feeling all fucked up,
And now you feel you're losing touch,
And now you're taking way too much,
Enough's enough, (WELL...)

Don't say I didn't tell you,
Don't say I didn't warn you,
Don't let anyone with half a brain,
Diagnose you,
You've gotta realise,
That everyone's a little broken,
The one's who say they're not,
Well, they're the ones who rule the world,
