Break Down These Blues

All of your raw materials
Have suffered the hands of this day
Exhausting your staple stockpiles
So we dog-eared its corners
And put away this day

It's not like you've been well prepared for this
Despite all the jobs that you've had
It's not like the lessons you're learning
Could ever draw upon the lessons
That you've learned from your past

The wars waged against you are ongoing
One day we know this one will end
It's just hard knowing from the beginning
That no matter your muster
It's a war you won't win

So who's got the gospel for a man in these shoes
He'll need ten million choirs here to break down these blues
You've gotta break down these blues
You've gotta break down these blues

So who's got the bottle of mercy
Who's got the water that warms
A few drops in a downpour go unnoticed
Lets me stare it in the eye and put away this storm
Lets me stare it in the eye and put away this storm
Lets me stare it in the eye and put away this storm
Lets me stare it in the eye and put away this storm
