"Break You Down" as written by Jason Charles Miller, Ullrich Gerd Hepperlin, Michael K. Miller and James M. O'connor....
I got a gun in my hand and
I feel like a man
I'm the pope of my generation
I got to push myself
Over your goddamn walls
I don't listen to your condemnation

Can't you see the
Is the only cause of everything
That you wish to stop
And bring to an end
But it only makes me hate you more

Careful what you wish for
It can only bring you down
keep your spirit on the ground
Emptiness the only sound

I know what it takes to break you down
And I'll kill everything that made you
(I know what it takes to break you down)

Take everything you tried to teach me
It don't add up to a pile of shit
All the methods you use
As you tried to reach me
They don't matter a single bit

I'm alright inside
I'm just trying to hide
From all the propaganda
You want to choke me with

keep your face away
keep your hands away
Don't want your fingers
In and out of my life

I know what it takes to break you down
(I know what it takes to break you down)
And I'll kill everything that made you
(I know what it takes to break you down)
I know what it takes to break you down
And I'll kill everything that made you

    General CommentYou've got some errors: Can't you see the/ Can't you see the thing that you bring(? I do know that some words are missing tho); They don't matter a single bit/ They don't matter not a single bit; I know what it takes to break you down/ I know what it takes to break you (the ones in parenthasese are alright)

    General CommentWell when you get the right lyrics I just want to say this song is amazing.

    I got tired of all the heavy metal nu metal crap but these guys are pretty damn sweet.

    General CommentI hate this song, even if Marilyn Manson sing on it. Not to say that he turns everything to gold, but he could have made it better..
