"Walking On Broken Glass" as written by John Feldmann and Tony Lovato....
Time goes by, I just try
To hold my head up high
People try to deny
Classify, or just hide

The feelings, what's inside
Broken hearts, and hard times
Don't let life break you down this time

I'm sitting here, crying here
You're alone and dying
There waiting for bad news
Like walking on broken glass
No answers for what was asked
You're all alone
'Cause you know that I'd
Give my life for you
Time can be nothing but our enemy

Don't give up just hold on
Is the pain just too strong
To hold on
Sometimes we're wrong when
We think we're right

Tonight will be the night
You'll break free from this fight
Don't let life break you down this time

I'm sitting here, crying here
You're alone and dying
There waiting for bad news
Like walking on broken glass
No answers for what was asked
You're all alone.
'Cause you know that I'd
Give my life for you
Time can be nothing but our enemy

I die inside from all I feel
Does it have to be this way?
Memories of yesterday
When it all just slips away
I give up everything I had to
Keep you one more day
I know that it's not right
Why do we feel this way?
Why do I feel this way?

I'm sitting here, crying here
You're alone and dying
There waiting for bad news
Like walking on broken glass
No answers for what was asked
You're all alone
'Cause you know that I'd
Give my life for you
Time can be nothing but our enemy

    General Commentthis is my fave song on the album--im not sure about the meaning..obvious meaning about someone who is dying and they dont know whats going to happen next..like waiting for a cure or waiting for some results..anyways..awesome song with good instrumentals.

    General CommentWow this is a great song I would have thought there would be more posts... anyway to me this song is about wanting to commit suicide "Don't give up just hold on Is the pain just too strong" i'm not sure what it's real meaning is though but i've seen Mest in concert they were awesome!

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone dying (obviously). And it's prolly just cuz of an illness or an accident of some sort. And i think it just decribes how people would feel in the waiting room:
    "I’m sitting here, crying here
    You’re alone and dying
    There waiting for bad news
    Like walking on broken glass
    No answers for what was asked"
    anyways it's a really good song, and sad.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone with a terminal illness, like cancer or something, and a friend trying to give them strength to stay alive. You could also see it as a song about a chick and someone trying to talk a friend out of suicide because they cant get over a chick. What do think?

    General Commentyea i think it is about some one dying from the way the lyrics are but i also think it talks about feelings for someone too in a way because some of the lyrics relate to the way i felt when me and my ex broke up because when we started talking about things of our relationship i realized that we were gonna brake up and i was sitting their wanting to cry and alone because i knew that bad news was gonna come out eventually. after it happened i did wanna give up because te pain was too strong to hold on too and i also would've given up ne thing to keep her one more day but in the end i got through it.
