Broken Hymn is there a song for a beaten man? i came here carrying a tune but it slipped my hands. stolen away by hearts that lie. i hear a choir of dreams that died in the distance like a far-off cry. there's so much ache in that melody - a song so honest and true it could bury me. all that misery and pain -- i'd sing it beautifully away if i still had a soul that could be saved.
is there a hymn for the beaten and the broken down? i got this bullet in my heart but it's still beating now. i wanna' shake these demons but it's just so hard to get free. sing with me. sing with me. just sing.
just gimme' something to feel at all. i got this woman in my life but she got no soul. there's a needle in her arm and we're getting so high. i'm tellin' ya babe, i ain't afraid to die. you'll sing no chorus if i go tonight. i'd leave you, woman, if i could somehow. you got this poison in your blood and it's killing me now. but listen don't you hear that sound - music as a heart gives out? oh my god, you gotta' tell me now
is there a hymn for the beaten and the broken down? i got this needle in my veins and i'm still bleeding now. i wanna' shake these demons but it's just so hard to stay clean. sing with me. sing with me. just sing.
my voice is trembling. it shakes along - so weak and tired and it's almost gone. maybe it's not beautiful. maybe it's not strong, but i'll sing this beaten, broken song. whoah oh oh oh oh oh whoah oh oh oh oh... i sing this hymn for the beaten and the broken down. got this bullet in my heart but it's still beating now. i'm gonna' shake these demons. yeah i know it's so hard to stay free. sing with me. sing with me.
