It’s a brittle world and it takes
All you’ve got
Not to break with it.

We need the slow decay
The epochal heave
The dark romance
Of a system failing.

And you’re always calling for a breakdown.

We kept that house from falling down
Just in time to see
The neighborhood burning.

But you have forever changed -
Eyes that shone like stars
Are now empty windows.

You fool, don’t go.
I need you more than you know.
You fool, don’t go.
I love you more than you know.

Don’t leave it in the sky tonight
You’re always calling on a breakdown.
