"A Broken Man And The Dawn" as written by Michael Poulsen and Jon Larsen....
There's a man looking blank to the wall
Older, colder and mumbling
Looking over his shoulder
Until the break of dawn
His eyes will not close

All the days are the same getting down
At the bar and he's mumbling
About the war and lost ones
Until the break of dawn
And where are his loved ones

Oh baby it's oh so cold in this place
Oh maybe it's all so close to the bitter end
Oh maybe it all just burns like a living hell
I'm all alone, and here comes the dawn

Hearing boots walking into the bar
Four men dragging their boxes
People stare and smell trouble
Until the break of dawn, the four men will go

Oh baby it's oh so cold in this place
Oh maybe it's all so close to the bitter end
Oh maybe it all just burns like a living hell
I'm all alone, and here comes the dawn

And the four men starts to open every case
And people wonder
When they pull out their instruments and play

Dear people we are the guitar gangsters
And we are here to join you
And ease the pain you're in
Now listen

Hearing boots walking into the bar
Four men dragging their boxes
People smile and they're roaring
Until the break of dawn, a new day is born

Oh baby it's oh so cold in this place
Oh maybe it's all so close to the bitter end
Oh maybe it all just burns like a living hell
I'm all alone, and here comes the dawn

Dear people we are the guitar gangsters
And we are here to join you
And ease the pain you're in
Now listen

Dear ladies and gentlemen
We thank you for your kindness
We're on the road again, forever

    Song MeaningI feel this song is about a man that is down on his luck and feels there is no way out, at a bar. Possibly a veteran that can not make people understand what he went through. He is in a bar either ready to end his life or hopefully fall asleep in the dawn. Then a band comes on that makes him understand his pain inside and lives to see another day.
