"Broken Hands" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
I can feel your fear and weakness
I see my own in the mirrors of your eyes
Carved into a corner hopeless
There's death ahead and doom behind
There's a bad storm blowing in
And most of us won't make it
The wreckage of your past
Means nothing now, forsake it

The memories cripple you
You're torn apart, your doubt must

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands

Well there's those that do
And those that just do talking
We're all going through hell
It's burn or keep on walking
The blackguards sing their shanty
Pure death riding the wind
Right now it's do or die
How will you choose to live

The memories that ruin you
You're torn apart your doubt must

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands

You best delay self-pity
Locked in devastation's throes
The noose waits you swinging
A blade of malice cuts the rope

Hostility ensues, no attempt to repent
your struggles vindicate the illest of intent

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken hands

    General CommentIt's sounds like he says

    "theres death ahead and doom behind"

    not


    Caught into a corner, hopeless.
    Near death ahead, and you behind.

    General CommentFear Before, your pretty much right.

    Just a wake-up call to those who try to convince themselves they're victims and can't save themselves.

    General CommentYou where totally right who ever said it was to tell emo kids to cheer up. This is a "Pick yourself up song" which tells depressed people they can make it through it. Randy said that himself youtube.com/… video proof of it. ;)

    General Commentlove this song.
    i think the meaning is pretty clear, might be something a bit deeper but for now i just hear randy talking down to someone who dwells on shit from the past and thinks it's worth suicide but can't even do it.
    pretty much a song saying 'man up.'

    General Commentmy favorite song off of the new cd =]. and the new cd is AMAZING. i love it.
    and i agree with fear before.
    it could possibly be aimed towards all of the emo pussies that complain about how awful their life is and how theyre going to kill themselves. but theyre all just talking shit for attention.

    General CommentAdd these corrections in there and you've got yourself some sweet lyrics!

    "The memories cripple you.
    You're torn apart, your doubt must die."

    "The blackguards sing their shanty
    Pure death riding the wind."

    "The memories that ruined you.
    You're torn apart, your doubt must die."

    "You best belay self pity
    Locked in devastation's throes."

    General Commenti think it's just telling people to move on and stop being pussies by letting your past break your will, and to live in the present and see that suicide is a lame way out
