"You Broke Like Glass" as written by Keith Barney, Kenneth W. Floyd, James Stephen Hart, Mick Morris and Brandan Schieppati....
Can I get away?
Get away from you.
'Cause your broken edge is what told the truth.

Standing: in the corner you start facing the wall alone.
Shaking: you crawl away.
But by now you've been so consume.
You gave it up for a dirty dime a dozen now you're layin in the corner so lonely.
Locked up. Locked down.
So down and out.
I'm watchin you die slowly.
Standing: in the corner you start facing the wall alone.
Shaking: you crawl away.
But by now you've been so consumed.

Can I get away?
Get away from you.
'Cause your broken edge is what's killing you.

And I choke
At the sight of you.
And I choke.
Yeah you're turning blue.

Do you feel fine now?

Can I get away?
Get away from you.
'Cause your broken edge is what's killing you.

Do you feel fine now?

And I choke at the sight of you.
And I choke.
Yeah you're turning blue.

    General Commenti think the songs about a drug addict who wont stop taing drugs. and their friends (or partner) tries to help but they wont stop untill they have destroyed themselves, and when their friend sees them they are disgusted with them

    General CommentLooks to me like it's about someone breaking edge (turning their back on the straightedge lifestyle), ruining their lives with drugs/alcohol, and whoever wrote the song being disguisted by it. Pretty obvious from the lines "Your broken edge is what told the truth... Your broken edge is killing you" and "You gave it up for a dirty dime a dozen".
