EVERYTHING is BROKEN:                                                                                                                                                                           A “TRAGIC”, DYSTOPIAN WORLD

Songwriter: Bob Dylan   Performed by Kenny Wayne Shepherd

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.
