"I'm Broken" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
I wonder if we'll smile in our coffins
While loved ones mourn the day,
The absence of our faces, living, laughing, eyes awake.
Is this too much for them to take?

Too young for ones conclusion,
The lifestyle won.
Such values you taught your son.
That's how.

Look at me now. I'm broken.
Inherit my life I'm broken
One day we all will die, a cliched fact of life.
Force fed to make us heed.
Inbred to sponge our bleed.
Every warning, a leaking rubber,
A poison apple for mingled blood.
Too young for ones delusion the lifestyle cost
Venereal Mother embrace the loss.
That's how look at you now.
You're broken
Inherit your life.

    General CommentThe song is about AIDS--"leaking rubber" refers to a condom that failed/broke and "such values you taught your son" refers to the parent not educating the son about the dangers of indiscriminate sex. Perhaps the parent went so far as to actively set a bad example by sleeping around themselves. The son imitated the behavior and look what happened.

    General CommentStudy a little the lyrics.....
    "Warning, a leaking rubber,a poison apple for mingled Blood"; "Too young for ones conclusion, the lifestyle won"
    "Look at you now. You're broken
    Inherit your life"
    It's actually about a person that died young of AIDS (warning, a bleeding rubber, mingled blood). the conclusion-> the lifestyle won and the person died. the songs actually ends with an optimistic note: "Inherit your life!!"
