Seether - Breakdown Lyrics

The sun is gone and the flowers rot
Words are spaces between us
And I should've been drowned in the rivers I've found of token lost
And I should've been down when you made me insecure

So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
'Cause I'm so much more than meets the eye

And I'm the one you can never trust
'Cause wounds are ways to reveal us
And yeah I could have tried and devoted my life to both of us
But what a waste of my time when the world we had was yours

So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
'Cause I'm so much more than all your lies

Hate me, break me down
So break me down
So break me down
So break me down if it makes you feel right
And hate me now if it keeps you alright
You can break me down if it takes all your might
'Cause I'm so much more than meets the eye

    Some times. In order to win we must first lose. Life is not always useful if easy or gives you everything. We are meant to be warriors

  19. m_ Slazer


  20. timothyfloogle

    This song threw me back 10/11 years...

  21. latreece bass


  22. Anthony Ramsey

    lip rings on dudes is hella fucking gay.


    What a weird observation.

  23. Christopher Bingham

    I don't know who's right and who's wrong, but both this and "Call me When You're Sober" are great songs. I hope both Amy and Shaun were able to move on from each other.


    Personally, I think this one is written better in that it's more passive and respectful.

  24. Dan McAlester

    Such an amazing video!!!!

  25. Hunter Nixon

    A man will lose himself trying to make an ungrateful female happy. I know all too well. Love this song!

    Michael Barnett

    True, been there

  26. Dustin Sellers

    This song is for everyone who has had a toxic controlling ex.

    Dustin Sellers

    That’s what I got from it. I had the same problem for a few years.

  27. Dustin Sellers

    Dislikes? Why?

  28. Haylee Dutton

    she really rubiks cubed him

  29. Andrewskiplier 1043

    2027 anyone?

  30. Jason Smith

    2019 and brokendown

  31. Fathom Darkness

    That was such a dark and deep album i wonder what he went through to make such a masterpiece like that. I hope he is alright


    His relationship with Amy Lee and his brother commiting suicide.

  32. Dave D

    How can I ever thank you enough for this song guys? Still utterly blown away in 2019 and counting..........

  33. Cintia Silva

    After all these years, I just realized she took off the inter part of his eyes and replaces it with another one (with herself in it)... Forcing him to just see her and nobody else.
    Deep meaning and I couldn't relate more to this song.
    This song and video are perfection.

    nawfal effendi

    Yup...good message

  34. Andrés Llerena

    It's a shame that Shawn Morgan doesn't look like that anymore. Although he is still doing good music and still great. I love him. : D


    He just has a longer beard now.

  35. Tommy Hollenbeck

    Whos still listening and doesnt give a shit what date it is?

  36. Superman23

    Seether is the same way now as they were back then and that's one awesome, badass, kickass rock band 🤘🤘

    King Greed

    They never really changed (for better or worst). Their new songs pretty much follow the same structure (verse, chorus, verse, chorus, scream, chorus, end).


    I know and that's what I was referring to and that's what makes them fucking awesome!

    King Greed

    @Superman23 The first CD is still good, but after the 2nd CD they became watered down and never evolved their sound. No good solos, same lyrics, same chords, same patterns, etc.


    @King Greed well everyone's opinions differ and that's alright but me they still sound the same and I like that because they stay true to themselves and their authentic sounds they're not damn sellouts like those douchebag bands like nickelback. For me I rank seether up their along with my all-time favorite band AC/DC and that's no easy feat considering I have not that many favorite bands eventhough I'm a rock fanatic.

  37. SkyDancer

    Sounds like he failed her shit tests.

  38. Vladimir Draculina Ţepeş

    Is it just me or does he kind of look like Karl Urban?

    Vladimir Draculina Ţepeş

    @Vic Pessia Look at Karl Urban than at the lead singer and tell me he doesn't look similar

  39. Preciosa S

    I love the lyrics to this song and the video is good

  40. sambei

    still here novmber 2019

    Tanner Buntain

    sambei same

    Brandon Betts


  41. Deeze Nutz

    what a perspective to write from.

  42. Michael Tracinski

    Well I,m the one you can never trust,,,,,,,

  43. ace_Savetheworld

  44. Memphis Jack

    I didn't know Karl Urban could sing.

  45. Leandro Lima

    Velhos tempos de MTV
    Bons tempos😮😮😢😢

  46. Russell Flynn

    Manchester we ai'nt even started with you Bitc...
    Watch these shores!

  47. Theo Von VS Everything

    The vocalist looks like he leads the Rohan cavalry in his spare time

    Zodiac Poltergeist


    Theo Von VS Everything

    Zodiac Poltergeist oh he looks exactly like the guy! I think this is what Eomer did after the War of the Ring. Now he just writes songs about toxic women in Gondor

  48. Tania Engel

    Mis you guys!!!!!!!!

  49. Nick Randles

    Black nail polish on a pretty girl was devised by the devil

  50. Virus Of Death

    I've lost love and now all I care about is hate. Society deserves it. I feel so good being your enemy cause I'm the one you fear cause I'm white. Filled with jealous rage I have no reason to fight. Madness will be my guiding light.

    carlos colon

    There is good people out there. It feels hopeless sometimes though for sure.

  51. erik Brown

    This song is all about the life we live, whether its alone or with someone, or even someone who leaves and just belittles you, this song is my whole 20 year relationship

  52. Brand New Eyes

    Totally love it.

  53. Perspective X

    such an underrated band even in my generation

  54. Rodney J.

    Shape-Changing Doppelganger Sorceress!!! I can't say how many times I've met her over my lifetime. I know. It says something about me, but shes hot. What can I say?

  55. keepopan

    Huge evanescence fan here , but definitely with morgan here , she kinda put him on blast for no reason

  56. Miyuru Eranda

    He's a badass and manly version of shane dawson.

  57. Raemnant

    Why is Eomer of Rohirrim's head turning into a rubix cube?

  58. Alyssa Farrar

    Recently I found Seether. True ❤️ TRUE soul. Save a few. Replay replay replay. Separation anxiety. Seether all day some days

  59. Ana María Valdera

    Tengo un torbellino en mi mente noce que aser me siento confundida con este cerebro cuadrado ♥️

  60. Fixin To Fish

    My wife served me a few weeks ago. I'm homeless and have seen my kids once, while she lives in a house I paid for. On a college education I paid for, in a bed I paid for. Still cant break me down.

  61. activ clipZ

    shes pretty good at the rubics cube.

  62. todd johnston

    that don't ever happen,

  63. Brian

    This song is about Shaun relationship with Amy Lee and the part of about "I'm more than meets the eye" is in direct response to Amy lee's call me when you are sober.

  64. ReaperZV

    These 2019 zombies are too much.

    Shanon Thrash

    He broke me down and it's more than it meets the eye

  65. Jesus Gonzalez

    Hey do you have any girls I can hook up with thanks
    ... 1501 w olmos San Antonio

  66. Bobby Bohata

    This song speaks to me so much. I had a woman in my life who slowly controlled everything I did and literally broke me down. It happened so slowly I didn't even realize it until one day she randomly filed for divorce. I always just focused on working hard and trying to be a good dad to my kids. Now I have an amazing woman in my life and I see how happy someone can make you, when they let you be you, and support you.I know this can happen to men and women, great song.

  67. Charlotte Skaggs

    Be yourself don't let people change you. I've been there most my friends wanted me to be someone I'm not. And my past boyfriends only wanted for someone I'm not. I won't change myself for anyone.

  68. Gummi Bear

    I watched this music video every damn morning before school.....damn such a great video

  69. Brooke Stonex

    Rubix cubes suck but this video rules 😘

  70. William Matthews

    If this woman lobotomized me like this so that I'd only think of her... I'd be okay with it. Also, Seether rocks!!! Keep that 90s alternative influence alive into this shitty new millennium my friends!

  71. Brandon Baxter

    My favorite seether song <3

  72. John Myers

    I know this is what society is trying to do to me

  73. Ago Contealia

    Move out of The parents house as fast as you can. No point doing it Right. We will figure it out under the moon light. Message to the past.

  74. Kingdom Within

    sounds like creed. got that catchy rock voice :)

  75. Marceline

    has anyone else noticed that Chris Daughtry (as in the band Daughtry) wrote the lyrics for this song??


    Where's the evidence? On Wikipedia it says it was written by Shaun Morgan, Dale Stewart and John Humphrey.


    @dedley01 literally says it in the description


    @Marceline Youtube has confused it with his song that is called Breakdown.


    And this matters why????


    @Jacque I thought it was cool? Tf

  76. Sean Phillips

    "Yeah I could've devoted my life to both of us. But what a waste of my time when the world we had is yours"
    5 years later I think of you. But I doubt you even remember me :( 7 years of joy bring my heart sadness now. Love is a world of bliss, but it's not worth it if shes trying to change who you are.

    John Myers

    Dam thats deep

    Mayur Thakkar

    same here. i cant believe i am reading 7 years and 5 years later. same time period it happened with me too.

    Dustin Sellers

    I feel your pain

  77. Tom Patchak

    When I try to talk to my crazy ex wife about anything she escalates. Quickly. Into something unneeded and unnecessary. Its really bad when your 11 year old kid sees it.
    You think your better? Yeah no.

  78. L.N Guimaraes

    A melhor musica de tds sem duvidas :)

  79. LEon probZS

  85. Ricardo Rivera

    These lyrics hit huard "so break me down if it makes you feel right and hate me now if it keeps you all right you can't break me down if it takes all your might cause I'm so much more than all your lies" to the cultureless swine reflecting themselves through the defamation of my character you will not win!

  86. Tonya Scarlett

    He is too damn hot.

  87. Forbidden 403
