American Breakdown

by Tish Meeks Tony Meeks

Genre: Rock


You work so hard to pay for things you don’t need
How many hours do you waste doing something you hate
To put gas in your car
and food on your plate
And blow all the rest on necessary “unnecessities”


It’s the American breakdown
A political showdown
A religious meltdown
So everybody get down

You do your best but no one seems to care
How hard do you try but still you barely get by
A dozen times a day you ask yourself “Why?”
No one has the answers as to how you can get ahead


You convince yourself to keep on keeping on
Sometimes you wanna give up
Feel like you’re stuck in a rut
Pouring your life into a bottomless cup
At the end of the day you don’t have anything to show
