"A Toast To Broken Glass" as written by and David Mcpherson....
He wonders why he made those choices
I guess he made them all for you
Got something that he wants to tell you
Got something that you should know
Everyone is laughing at you
They all laugh behind your back
They talk about you when you were different
They talk about when you fell off track
These fathers don't know the difference
They just see their sons and smile
Even though he is burning all his bridges
These things just take a while
He looks back for the last time
Then leaves, but we all know he'll be back

A toast to broken glass
(Treading bloody feet)
An oath that never lasts
(His father sheds a tear)

Through the desert marching slowly
Walking towards the green
In a forest so damp and withered
Where nothing is as it seems
To the mountains way beyond him
Sees his father's face in rocks
Gotta get there, gotta keep going
But now his smile drops
Gone back to where he started
Gone back to hell knows where
Finds some water in a bottle can't open
This thirst is his despair
Falls to his knees and crying
Crying won't get you anywhere

I still love you, yes I still love you..

I still believe in you and I forgive you father's son
I still have faith in you but now I have to walk away
This virgin whore is silver
A silver gun loaded at your heart
His friends all turned away from him
They told him he'd be better off dead

    I can't believe there's no comments on this song, it's fantastic. To me, this song reflects soldiers and war etc. but it would be good to have some more comments :) x

    "It is based on a vivid dream I had.
    It is about a man's descent into addiction following the path of his father." - Dave
