"A Broken Upper Hand" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
Trapped behind my state of mind
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you've given just kills me.

Your words swarm through my soul like locusts.
Eating away at any glimpse of focus.
Their eyes flaming red like pain.
Filling the void once righteous and bloodstained.
But words can't kill the light inside me
That tears me from the hate that binds me.
I feel it crawling up my spine.
But I'll cut it off before it reaches the bloodline.

You'll never fade me out, you'll never turn me off.
You'll never reach the end, you'll never hear enough.
You're half-grasp can't exterminate my stand.
You can't rule with a broken upper hand.
A fragment of what's been left behind.

Trapped behind my state of mind,
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you've given just kills me.
Trapped behind my state of mind,
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you've given just kills me. (YEAH)

Your face brings out the hate that rots me.
The face of everyday that haunts me.
I can't pull away my blank stare.
A thousand times should prove I don't care.
But hands can't steal the light that makes me.
Or bring me to the fate that breaks me
I feel it crawling up my spine.
But I'll cut it off before it reaches the bloodline.

You'll never fade me out, you'll never turn me off.
You'll never reach the end, you'll never hear enough.
You're the half-grasp can't exterminate my stand.
You can't rule with a broken upper hand.
A fragment of what's been left behind.

Trapped behind my state of mind
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you've given just kills me.

Trapped behind my state of mind
A fragment of what's been left behind
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you give just kills me.
Trapped behind my state of mind
A fragment of what's been left behind
I took your words and now I'm blind.
And everything you give just kills me

KILLS ME! (8x)

    the meaning that i see behind this song is that even though satan tries to rule with his Broken hands, he will NEVER take the LIGHT that Jesus has put within us.

    General CommentLike Mokoma - Vade Retro, Satana!

    A Finnish band trashing to satan. The singer's like bashing his screams "Painu pois tieltäni, sinä saatana. Painu tuonelaan, sinä saatana!" Meaning "Get out of my way, you satan! Bugger-off into hell, you satan!" :D

    General CommentWhat I think it's about when a preacher talks to a atheist and the preacher gets caught up with the atheists words and he get's, i dont know if im sayin this right but he kinda believes in satan thats my guess.

    You'll never turn me off you'll never hear enough(thats the preachers part)

    Trapped behind my state of mind and then i took your words and now i am blind(thats the atheists Q)
