Broke Down at the end of the night
Can't seem to get anything right
So numb I can't feel things anymore
But somehow can feel me letting go
I know theres so many things that I need to do
and I need to say
No matter how hard I try I can't get the words out right

(Chorus)

Man down tie a ribbon round' my soul
I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship thats lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light
Man down and I'm drowning in the pain
Face down like a needle in the vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain
I see you standing in the rain

The lights of the city feel so bright
All these colors I got inside
In these streets I feel like a foiler
All I paint is myself in a corner
Going on seems to hurt so much
But all the world seems so cold to the touch
When I go to sleep I don't dream
I just see a blank television screen

(Chorus)

Man down tie a ribbon round' my soul
I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship thats lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light
Man down and I'm drowning in the pain
Face down like a needle in the vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain
I see you standing in the rain

Tie a ribbon for the child in me
On every door and every tree
Make it black for the way that I feel
'Cause black is the only color thats real

(chorus)

Man down tie a ribbon round' my soul
I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship thats lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light
Man down and I'm drowning in the pain
Face down like a needle in the vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain
I see you standing in the rain

Broke down at the end of the night
Can't seem to get anything right
