  Oh Mercy session 6, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 14 or 15.mar.1989, album version  

Broken lines, broken strings
Broken threads, broken springs
Broken idols, broken heads
People sleepin' in broken beds
Ain't no use jivin'
Ain't no use jokin'
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 everytime you stop an' turn around
Someone 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.

Everytime you leave and go off someplace
Things fall to pieces in my face.

Broken hands on broken plows
Broken treaties, broken vows
Broken pipes, broken tools
People bendin' broken rules
Hounddog howlin', bull frog croakin'
Everything is broken.  up

  Oh Mercy session 6, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 14 or 15.mar.1989 #2  

Broken nights, broken days
Broken leaves on broken trees
Broken treaties, broken vows
Broken hands on broken ploughs.
Ain't no use runnin', honey
Ain't no use jokin'
Nothin's workin'
Everything's broken.

Broken lives hangin' by a thread
Broken bones in a broken bed
Broken mirror, broken chair
Broken roads goin' nowhere
Broken words never meant to be spoken
Can't help it honey
Everything's broken.

I sent you roses once from a heart that was truely grieved
Sent you roses someone else must have received.

Broken clock on a broken wall
Broken voices in a broken hall
Broken beginnings, broken ends
Streets are filled with broken friends
Take a deep breath, baby, feel like you're chokin'
Tell me the truth now
Everything's broken.

Seen James Dean in a picture once, comin' in from the cold,
Said, "Geez I hope to look that good, if I get to be that old."

Broken plants on a broken floor
Broken key for a broken door
Broken idols, broken heroes
Broken numbers adding up the zeroes
Hound dogs howlin', bull frogs croakin'
It ain't easy, baby
Everything's broken.  up
