Breakdown Lyrics

in your life
you seem to have it all
you seem to have control
but deep within your soul
you're losing it

you never took the time
assume that you're to blame
you think that you're insane
won't you spare me

chorus: i know the breakdown
everything is gonna shake now someday
i know the breakdown
tell me again am i awake now maybe
you can find the reason that
no one else is living this way yeah
living this way yeah

yeah your lies
your world is built around
two faces of a clown
the voices in your head
think there's four pawns down

well in this unity
fate has found the need
so you better check yourself
before you check out

chorus

if you find yourself
then you might believe
(if you find yourself)
(then you might believe)
then within yourself
you just might conceive
(then within yourself)
(you just might)

chorus

you can find the reason that
(you can find the reason that)
no one else is living this way
(you can find the reason that way)

I don't know, but the lead singer of Tantric reminds me a lot of Scott Stapp fom Creed and Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam, but besides that this really song rocks!!!

An error occured.

this song is so awesome! i think it has a similar meaning to Astounded, about being your own person and finding your way.

An error occured.

I dont know why this song is beautiful, but it is. (yeah, i know i've said that about almost every song i have commented...) anyways, Tantric have a good thing going here. I enjoy their music.

An error occured.

i love his voice and just the way the song sung. i agree tantric are going to go far if they know how to deal with record companies. their lyrics are meaningful but not korny or sappy, and again, the lead singer has a very unique voice that'll make anyone want to listen to their songs.

Yo! This song is tight! Tighter than my little brother's coat on my big sister. If you understand the lyrics and what's goin' on, then you'll be feelin' this song. No muthafuckin' doubt this shit is da bomb!

An error occured.

lol I agree with linkman

An error occured.

this is probably the best song in the world. i like the part in the song when he says "you can find the reason that no one else is living this way".. BUT that's jussst me

An error occured.

I think it's about the struggle for control in your personal life. Sometimes it's not easy at all.

An error occured.

I think this is about someone who is having a lifestyle that's bound to lead to problems eventually.

Perhaps a song about alcoholic problem. I'm thinking about the line "your lies your world is built around two faces of a clown", indicating that you pretend that everything is normal in some situations while in others you show who you really are. And both faces are actually a joke.

Also the line "so you better check yourself before you check out" might be about admitting that you have a problem.

Great song anyway!

An error occured.

call me crazy, but i personally think that its about Days of the New frontman Travis Meeks, who kicked the guys that now play the instruments in Tantric, out of his band in 1998. Travis had a drug problem and eventually blew his fortune and ended up on A&E's Intervention for it. Tantric was kinda successful while days of the new burned to the ground and travis still cant seem to fix it. so yeah thats what i think its about.
