Watch The World Premiere Of New Tears For Fears Video For “Break The Man”

The official video for Tears For Fears’ new single “Break The Man” from their upcoming album ‘The Tipping Point’, coming February 25, 2022.

“It’s about a strong female – which is obvious, but it’s really about breaking the patriarchy.” – Curt Smith. Inspired by the lyrics, the music video encompasses a world that illustrates the constructed reality of the patriarchy. It’s a place of endless hierarchies built on blind devotion to unstable and unsustainable structures. From the inside, the world appears infinite, but from the outside, it’s a mere plaything in the hand of Mother Universe.

Lyrics
This was never what I thought it was
This is not who we are
This is where someone was meant to say
Enough is enough
This is nothing like they said it would be
This has all gone too far
When everything is running out
This is love

She’s the fire and the fallout
She reminds you of the things we never talk about

She’s the lover with the best-laid plan
To break the man
She’s a sinner in a side show
She feels at home when there’s nowhere left to go
She’s the devil you understand
Break the man

No more tearing the bandages off
No more living a lie
No more chewing the scenery
No more rain no more rain
No more wondering “what happens now?”
No more holding your feet to the fire
When everything is running down
No more pain

She’s the fire and the fallout
She reminds you of the things we never talk about
She’s the lover with the best-laid plan
To break the man
She’s the trouble in the headline
She’s the mother who turns back father time
She’s the devil you understand
Break the man

No more wondering “what happens now?”
No more holding your feet to the fire
When everything is running down
This is love

She’s the fire and the fallout
She reminds you of the things we never talk about
She’s the lover with the best-laid plan
To break the man
She’s the trouble in the headline
She’s the mother who turns back father time
She’s the devil you understand
Break the man
