"Everything Is Broken" lyrics - KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD

"Everything Is Broken"

Broken lives, broken strings
Broken threads, broken springs,
Broken idols, broken heads,
People sleeping, in broken beds.
Ain't no use jivin'
Ain't no use jokin'
Yeah, everything is broken.

Broken bottles, broken legs,
Broken switches, broken gates,
Broken dishes, broken parts,
The streets are filled, with broken hearts.
Broken words, never meant to be spoken,
Ohh - everything is broken.

It seems like every time I stop and - turn around
Something else has just - hit the ground

Broken cutters, broken saws,
Broken buckles, broken laws,
Broken bodies, broken bones,
Broken voices, on broken phones
Take a deep breath, feel like you're chokin',
Hey everything is broken.

[Instrumental Bridge]

Yeah every time you leave and go off someplace
Things fall to pieces, in my face

Broken hands, on broken ploughs,
Broken treaties, and broken vows,
Broken pipes, broken tools,
People bending, broken rules.
Hound dog howlin', bull frog croakin'
Hey everything is broken.
Everything is broken.
Everything is broken.
Everything is broken.
Whoh-oh... oh yeah... oh...
Yeah everything is broken.
