"Breakout" as written by Taylor Hawkins, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
You make me dizzy
Running circles in my head
One of these days I'll chase you down
Well look who's going crazy now
We're face to face my friend
Better get out
Better get out

You know you make me breakout
Make me breakout

I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that

You know you make me breakout
Make me breakout

I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that
Know you make me breakout

You can see this on my face
It's all for you
The more and more I take I break right through
Therapy still scares me
Putting me on my back again
I may be crazy, little frayed around the ends
One of these days I'll phase you out

Burn it in the blast off
Burn it in the blast off
Watch me crawl away
Try to get out
Try to get out

You know you make me breakout
Make me breakout

I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that

You know you make me breakout
Make me breakout

I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that

Breakout!
Go, go, go

You know you make me breakout
Make me breakout

I don't wanna look like that
I don't wanna look like that
Know you make me breakout

    General CommentDave says this about it

    "'Breakout' started off almost as a joke, just a play on the word and taking the piss out of your typical tortured romance love story. It's supposed to seem kinda ridiculous because I can't imagine anyone wanting to break off a relationship just because they have acne, y'know?

    Love this song, Dave is awesome!

    General CommentDunno the real meaning of this song... but seeing the video and reading the lyrics, makes it sound as if he really wants this girl' almost has an obsession
    'therapy still scares me...'
    and she is all he can think about
    'You make me dizzy running circles in my head...
    But she keeps on going around with other people and making him 'breakout'. dunno whether thats right, just my opinion. what do you guys think?

    General CommentIt seems to me that this more of someone that he _doesn't_ like driving him crazy. I've been in similar spots when I remain friends with someone I shouldn't be friends with in the first place for longer than I should. It creates a similar feeling.

    General Commenti think hes using the word "breakout" like he goes crazy literally... " therapy " n all... you know it makes sense.
