Broken lines, broken strings,
 Broken threads, broken springs,
 Broken idols, broken heads,
 People sleeping in broken beds
Ain't no use jiving 
Ain't no use joking  Everything is broken 

 Broken bottles, broken plates,
 Broken switches, broken gates,
 Broken dishes, broken parts,
 Streets are filled with broken hearts
 Broken words never meant to be spoken,
 Everything is broken 

Seem like every time you stop and turn around  Something else 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',
 Everything is broken 

 Every time you leave and go off someplace  Things fall to pieces in my face

 Broken hands on broken ploughs,
 Broken treaties, broken vows,
 Broken pipes, broken tools,
 People bending broken rules
 Hound dog howling, bull frog croaking,
 Everything is broken
