BandAlternativeRock

We're a Christian hard rock band with metal undertones, female lead vocals, and multipart harmonies. Our lyrics revolve around those who have been broken by the world finding the only One who can piece them back together.

Biography

Voices of the Broken, has been together for 6 years. We live in Leesville, Louisiana. We started out as a harder praise and worship band and have evolved into a Christian alternative/hard rock band. We have a blend of female vocals, screams, and harmonies that, when paired with the metal leanings of our lead guitarist and drummer, make for a very unique sound.
We are fully capable of playing praise and worship, and often still do, but our passion is for the songs that God has given us. We have approximately 15 original songs, and this number is continually growing.
Some of our musical influences include Mudvayne, Breaking Benjamin, and Avenged Sevenfold. Our vocal influences are Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, and Five Finger Death Punch. Some of our lyrical influences are Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, and authors such as Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti.

Lyrics

Adultress

Written By: Voices of the Broken

You can't run, You can't hide
You can't escape the fear inside.
You must face all your pain
Or never see the light of day again.

I kneel in shame, I hide my face,
I'm crawling toward the source of grace.
You take my hand and make me stand.
You've helped me find my faith again.

You are marked by your past.
Your life is shattered like broken glass.
He rips out all your stains
And you lay down to Him who gave you grace.

I kneel in shame, I hide my face,
I'm crawling toward the source of grace.
You take my hand and make me stand.
You've helped me find my faith again.

The demons you face are nothing compared
To searching for life that's no longer there.
The demons you face are nothing compared
To the demons you face are nothing.

The demons you face are nothing compared
To the Truth and the Life who has conquered all fear.
The demons you face are nothing compared
To the demons you face are nothing.

Cries from the Pit

Written By: Voices of the Broken

My heart breaks between thoughts of You and me.
In this pit I crawl, where I've lost it all.

Hands and knees hit the floor.
I'm falling away from things that used to matter most.
I've sold my life away.

I left my Lover for my abuser.
He drove me down and swallowed my cries.
Blood in my eyes and dirt on my hands,
he throws me down like rags. Will I ever get up again?

I've seen these walls before; no windows or doors.
Pleasure's stripped away. All that's left is pain.

You want to break me down. You want to control me.
You want me to fall down. But you will not take me.

I left my Lover for my abuser.
He drove me down and swallowed my cries.
Blood in my eyes and dirt on my hands,
he throws me down like rags. Will I ever get up again?

Wordless Hymns

Written By: Voices of the Broken

I scream but nothing is heard.
Words fail me. My thoughts flee.
I crawl and scrape at the dirt, and I’m trying
to find my way out of this and fill up this emptiness.
I scream with no words in mind; Spirit, I need you this time.

CHORUS:
Take my dreams, take my fears.
Take my joys and take my tears.
When I’m struggling for words, Spirit, make sure that I’m heard.
When there’s nothing I can say that could possibly convey
what’s going on inside of me; Holy Spirit, speak for me.

I raise my hands up to You.
Words fail me. I can’t speak.
I praise with all that I am, and I’m singing
a hymn that has no words, but I know my heart is heard.
I praise with no words in mind. Spirit, just lead me this time.

God I know you understand
when wordless hymns are all I have.

For churches, we can play some of our more worshipful originals along with some of today's top praise and worship songs.
