“Don’t say this is okay. We’re breaking down. I’m broken down.” ~ Catlea

“Broken Down” is a powerful, provocative song whose lyrics are both a collective plea to humanity and a call for us individually — me, you, everyone — to wake up and take charge of our lives. It’s time to rise and take a stand. If not now, when?

Catlea’s sixth single boasts a heavier alt-rock sound reminiscent of Neil Young jamming with Coldplay’s Jonny Buckland. In this hard rocking anthem are echoes of Young's "Down by the River" fused with Coldplay's hit, "Talk” resulting in an unforgettable song for our times.

Lyrics

The bandages are broken now
All of the souls in lost and found
And as the sky returns to grey
We tell ourselves it's all okay

We turn our faces to the light
And hope the stars do not bite
How long until the love runs out?
How long until the world burns down?

Don't say this is okay
We're breaking down
I'm broken down
Don't say it's all okay
We're beaten down
I'm beaten down

The empty fools they roam the land
Sunken eyes and blistered hands
The swollen stomachs of the damned
Are all caused by what we call "man"

Don't say this is okay
We're breaking down
I'm broken down
Don't say it's all okay
We're beaten down
I'm beaten down

Go ahead and turn a blind eye again
I dare you
And go and tell all your friends
This doesn’t scare you
But it still scares you


Don't say this is okay
We're breaking down
I'm broken down
Don't say it's all okay
We're beaten down
I'm beaten down

Don't say this is okay
We're breaking down
I'm broken down
Don't say it's all okay
We're beaten down
I'm beaten down
