"When Broken Is Easily Fixed" as written by Joshua Bradford, Shane Told and Neil Boshart....
I can resist everything except temptation.
My body breaks,
But I am still intact inside.
My human instinct,
I can love unconditionally.
Cross my heart and lie to you
(my conscience plagues at me, fills me with this despair)
Failure within me.
Promise you and let you down
(emotion conquers my soul, robs me of myself) brings me to my knees.
Follow me, lead you astray
(nourish myself with fear, give me the pain to fail)
Loathe myself to sleep.
Your words kill me.
You can breathe without oxygen and live without sorrow.
How I envy you, though pity your ghost.
Ignorance is bliss
I wish I could never love you.
So ironic that a heart made by man,
When broken is easily fixed.
But a human hurt can last a lifetime.
Rust or decay.
The fire or the flame.
You and I will lead the path to change.
Pave the way.

    General CommentI think this is about a guy who loves someone but wished he didnt "I wish I could never love you" and no matter how hard he tries, he can't move on. Like Everything that the girl does or says just breaks his heart type thing. I dont know, just my opinion

    General CommentI agree with the other comments. I just wanted to add that "I can resist everything except temptation" is from Oscar Wilde.

    General Commentto me this song is about him loving her so much and never being good enough or always failing (promise you and let you down, follow me, lead you astray) and how he wishes he wouldnt love her because he breaks her heart to much

    General CommentThe constant use of contradictions is what brings my attention to this song the most.
    "promise you and let you down," "follow me, lead you astray," etc.
    It only to adds to the impact the music and Shane's screaming make, as well as the the intensification the entire song wonderfully portrays.

    Irony is such a powerful medium if used correctly, and I think Silverstein used it quite well.

    The lyrics
    "I can resist everything except temptation"
    "so ironic that a heart made by man,
    when broken is easily fixed
    but a human hurt can last a lifetime"
    give me a feeling that's rather inexplicable to me.

    General Commentthis song is amazing!!!!....I agree with mns504 on the meaning...this song just gets me everytime i hear it...my fav part is when Shane says this:
    "So ironic that a heart made by man,
    when broken is easily fixed.
    But a human hurt can last a lifetime."

    That is soo true! ..Shane Told=pure genius

    General Commentthis song is so quotable. pretty much every line in this song is so meaningful to me. i think hes talking about just typical relationships now days are so full of contradictions and dissappointments. when you have someone to love that is what you are supposed to do, love.. but now all the 'gf bf', 'love you forever' stuff is shit. everyone gets hurt in the relationship.
    and this is my favorite part

    General Commenthah oops.. here we go.
    "so ironic that a heart made by man,
    when broken is easily fixed
    but a human hurt can last a lifetime"

    like the saying goes love hurts.

    "rust or decay
    the fire or the flame"

    this is kind of like one choice disguised as two. or like picking your poison, meaning that now days it seems like you have no choice but to have a relationship that sucks.

    "you and i will lead the path to change
    pave the way"

    but hes saying that there is more than one choice and they can make their own path. aww..
