(Break It, Break It Down)
(You don't mean nothing at all to me)
(Break it, break it, break it, break it, down)

In the day
In the night
Say it right
Say it all
You either got it
Or you don't
You either stand or you fall
When your will is broken
When it slips from your hand
When there's no time for joking
There's a hole in the plan

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

I could say (say)
That I'm not (not)
Lost (lost)
And at fault (fault)

I could say (say)
That I don't (don't)
Love the light (light)
And the dark (love the light)

I could say (say)
That I don't (don't)
Know that I (I)
Am alive (alive)
And I'll love (love)
What I feel (feel)
I could show (show you)
You tonight
You tonight

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

From my hands I could give you
Something that I made

From my mouth I could
Sing you another brick that I laid

From my body (from ny body)
I could show you ( I could show you)
A place (a place)
God knows (that only god knows)

You should know the space is holy
Do you really want to go? (two, three, four)
(You don't mean no nothing at all to me)
(You don't mean nothing at all to me)
