"Break You" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Endless mornings cut by the dawn razor
Whipping the nightmares to a froth
Endless questions with no answers
No replacement for what's been lost
Lost

Everything suffocates in the dust of the past fortunes squandered
The empire of lies to whom you pandered
Suffer a self-imposed exile, taste the bitter fruits of denial
In the presence of greatness the humble can only bow

Frost on the breath of life
Empty of warmth or light
Full of nothing but deprivation

Frost on the breath of life
Empty of warmth or light
For an eternal winter

Tell me a lie with the best of intentions
Mute in the age of mass communication
Dark days lead to darker nights
Frozen, out of time
It dies for blessed ego, the once mighty laid low

Frost on the breath of life
Empty of warmth or light
Full of nothing but deprivation

Full of nothing but deprivation
Eternal winter
Full of nothing but deprivation
Eternal winter

You taught me hate, I'll teach you fear
Open the eyes, kill despair
You tried to squeeze the life from me
Son of a bitch, I'm going to break you
Son of a bitch, I'm going to break you

Break you, I'm going to break you
Break you

    General CommentThis is clearly about being trapped in a framed prisoners mind, the things that travel through a prisoners head are usually revenge and hate. "You taught hate, I'll teach you fear.Open the eyes, kill despair. You tried to squeeze the life from me. Son of a bitch, I'm going to break you "

    A framed prisoner spending time in prison for somthing they didnt do, the dark nights spent in a cell due to this persons selfishness. You taught me hate, Ill teach you fear. Son of a bitch I am going to break you!

    Dont listen to the assholes that say it is about bush and people in denial for voting for him. This song has nothing to do with bush or any other political subject such as war.

    General CommentOk, search depper. Interperet how you want, but at least have a good explanation as to why you believe what you want. Mr. Fuck Bush, seriously.

    In my opinion, this could be about a relationship. Possibly one of those ones where one pours their heart and soul into it, and the other pushes away, leaving the other empty inside. I don't need to go further, but that's what I think... just listen to this or read the lyrics and think about one of those relationships where you begin to hate the other because they wont take advice and they keep everything inside and wont let you in on aiding them. That's where I start to hate them, and threaten them that it can't go on any longer, hence, teaching them fear (You taught me hate, I'll teach you fear). That's just what I think... and the eternal winter thing is well, we all know winter can really suck and put one in a bad mood, and when a relationship just stays like that where one isn't interacting with the other as far as talking or being assertive, that can really put you down as well and then in the end begin to piss the fuck out of you.

    General Comment"You taught me hate, I'll teach you fear"
    That is quite possibly the most powerful lyric I've ever heard.

    You can take the Bush intrepretation for face value or you could search deeper...

    General Commenti agree with furious angel. the lyrics may seem like bullshit, as any high school pathetic poet trying to be dramatic would write...or it could mean something. and i love the line you taught me hate i'll teach you fear, open the eyes kill despair. you tried to squeeze the life from me son of a bitch i'm going to berak you. THAT is obvious what it means but the rest of the song, im clueless. its aesome though, lyrics and msuic.

    General CommentI dunno if it is just the version I have or not, but where it says:

    Frost on the breath of life
    Empty of warmth or light
    Full of nothing but deprivation
    Eternal winter

    in the lyrics I am pretty sure it says:

    Frost on the breath of life
    Empty of warmth or light
    Full of nothing but deprivation
    Frost on the breath of life
    Empty of warmth or light
    Caught in eternal winter

    in the song. O.o

    General Commenti think this song is about nuclear war. "eternal winter" that is nuclear term. "frost on the breath of life" is the word for killing people by trying to kill other things. or it could be like the nuclear radiation on ur lungs or somethin i dont no. thats the thing with lamb of god. there songs are like a story. this is a talented fucking band and i love the way they think. randy is awsome

    General Commentwell if you take out
    "
    Full of nothing but deprivation
    You taught hate, I'll teach you fear
    Open the eyes, kill despair
    You tried to squeeze the life from me
    Son of a bitch, I'm going to break you
    "
    it could be about global warming and how the government tries to deny it,
    and before you bitch read the lyrics
