Lyrics

The Answer

Written By: Broken Sunday

Teary, tainted eyes.
Cold and cracked, the disbelieving crystal glare.
What does this to you?
Who broke the trendy promises, to make the sky so gray?
On this typical day.

Half-Chorus
Take my life and show me what I’m living for.
There’s nothing I won’t do for the answer.

Living skeptical, questioning everything that I haven’t seen.
Why can’t I just cave and accept what everybody thinks
To save my piece of mind
My piece of mind

Full-Chorus
Take my life and show me what I’m living for.
There’s nothing I won’t do for the answer.
Give me hope and prove to me that this is worth it.
It’s killing me like a cancer.
And I’m still looking for the answer.

Still looking for…

Bridge
Aimless, ordinary, stationary dream
Self destruct under the pressure changing me
Changing me.

(Full-Chorus)

Until I Break

Written By: Broken Sunday

I’m not appreciated, though what is anymore.
True feelings barricaded make me what you want.
If I keep quiet, no one will ever laugh or think I’m wrong.
Listen close, I’m screaming silently beside.

Pre Chorus
Capable of so much more
Than what I’m given credit for.

Chorus
Push me until I break
Release to make it better
I shot for the heavens but caught a falling star
Fragile self-confidence and simply intolerant
The me I can’t avoid

Give back what you have taken I cannot balance anymore
Of these fickle situations, waiting at my door
Clean your face, and save your dirty looks for someone else
Angrily I clench my fist and grind my teeth.

(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)

Bridge
Can you keep us from breaking, refraining from this?
Rewind this time again better watch us.
You can’t keep us from taking,
You wouldn’t would you?
You couldn’t do this could you so

(Chorus)
(Outro)

See This Through

Written By: Broken Sunday

The highway is empty at 1am
and there’s static on the radio.
Drifting over the center line,
and no one cares cause noboby’s there
to hear the static,
on the radio.

Pre-Chorus
Closed mind and idle hands
Write epics of dead intentions
Closed minds and idle hands
Can’t fight and take direction

Chorus
We must believe, there is something more
To this we call life there’s something in store
Just see this through.
And we will not leave, until this is done
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again
Just see this through.

Expectations betrayed,
And we’re the only ones who care as we all
smile and put on a show
In the basement
No one cares, cause nobody’s there
I guess we’re all static
On the radio

(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)

Bridge
Through the years I’ve come to know
The truth behind this façade.
And through the years I have grown to know
It’s not easy just because someone’s done it before
I know it’s one in a million, but
Those are the odds that we have to take
We must believe

(Outro)
