It’s not much, but this is home,
And there’s nowhere else to go! This is the breakdown, this is the breakdown,
This is the breakdown! This is a breakdown,
And we’ve got nowhere else to go. We’re raising our cross just to burn it,
The clergy are selling their souls. Welcome to the breakdown,
Welcome to the end of the road. It’s a pied-piper song that has lulled you to sleep,
It’s a lie and you fell for it – hook, line, and sinker,
A hand that you shook that then gave you the finger. [Verse 1]
All hail, the jester has landed,
In flyover country he sings. [Verse 2]
When we all go deaf in the chamber of echoes,
Cheering the missile parade. [Pre-Chorus]
We’ll be standing here holding our ground, come what may,
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave. [Chorus]
Welcome to the breakdown,
Welcome to the end of the road. Welcome to the breakdown,
We’ve got nowhere else to go. [Hook]
It’s a game, you’ve been played,
It’s a flock, you’re the sheep. This is a breakdown,
And we’ve got nowhere else to go. Welcome to the breakdown,
Welcome to the end of the road. A fraud and a fake, a cowardly king,
A lie to your face, but you still kiss the ring. [Chorus]
Welcome to the breakdown,
Welcome to the end of the road. Charmed like a snake in a basket,
Should be curled up and ready to spring. Agreeing to let all the banks rob the people,
Together we circle the drain. [Outro]
Welcome to the breakdown,
Welcome to the end of the road. [Pre-Chorus]
We’ll be standing here holding our ground, come what may,
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave. Welcome to the breakdown,
We’ve got nowhere else to go. Welcome to the breakdown,
We’ve got nowhere else to go. [Bridge]
Standing here holding our ground, come what may,
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave. Clearing a path, ignoring the facts,
Intoxicated by the throne.
