  •  "Everything Is Broken" (5+ / 0-)

    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.

    Seems 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
    Thangs/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.

    B. Dylan

    I'm particularly fond of the gravely R.L. Burnside version which is on the truly fine soundtrack from the film Big Bad Love.
