"The Broken" as written by Bryan Todd, Michael Smidi Smith, Sean Holt and Anthony Calleja....
I followed your every move in a stride that will's disguise
A little markings clue the find
Your red lips speak of painted figures
Teeth of mangled little listeners
The thoughts that hide your rusty scissors and
Hooded men.
Swinging amnesty across this violence,
Obscurity has no hero.

The world looks better when you're falling
Brace to comfort enough to crawl in
Divided we must
Pray for the broken
No one could fix us
We are, we'll always be
The wrong

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Your touch seethes of emptiness
Callous tips against the brush
The world's now breaking off to crust

The world looks better when you're falling
Brace to comfort enough to crawl in
Divided we must
Pray for the broken
No one could fix us
We are, we'll always be
The wrong

We're conspiring

Oh

Where was your heart
When we needed it most
Live in denial
And I'll be your ghost
There is nothing to let go
Only time will let you know
If you're worth anything
You'll know then
Giving up way too early.
Let the axis turn you free
And destroy everything you love!

The world looks better when you're falling
Brace to comfort enough to crawl in
Divided we must
Pray for the broken
No one could fix us
We are, we are
We are, we are
We are, we'll always be
The wrong

    General CommentI followed your every move
    in a stride that wills disguise.
    A little markings clue defined.
    Your red lips they speak of painted figures,
    think of mangled little listeners,
    the thoughts that hide your rusty scissors in.
    Swinging honesty across this violence,
    obscurity has no hero.

    The world looks better when you’re falling
    Grace to comfort enough to crawl in
    Divided we must pray for the broken, no one could fix us.
    We are, we’ll always be the wrong.

    Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah

    Your touch seeds of emptiness.
    The callous tips against the brush,
    The world's now breaking off to curse

    The world looks better when you’re falling
    Grace to comfort enough to crawl in
    Divided we must pray for the broken, no one could fix us.
    We are, we’ll always be the wrong.

    We are conspiring.

    Where was your heart, when we needed it most?
    Live in denial and I’ll be your ghost.
    There is nothing to let go, only time will let you know.
    If you’re worth anything, you’ll know that I’m
    Giving up way too early, Let the axis turn you free,
    and destroy everything you love.

    The world looks better when you’re falling
    Grace to comfort enough to crawl in
    Divided we must pray for the broken, no one could fix us.
    We are, we are...
    We are, we are...
    We are, we'll always be the wrong

    General CommentI'm hearing "the teeth of mangled little listeners,"
    and right after "the thoughts that hide your rusty scissors in," I hear it as,
    "Hold them in, swinging honesty across this violence,"

    Or is that just me?

    General CommentIs this more writer/story drama a la GAIBSIV? I get the feeling this is more personal, like Claudio dealing with his die hard fans of SSTB and IKSSE3 and trying to move on but placate them as well. "swinging honesty across this violence"- taking personal stories and aadapting them into story. "Where was your heart heart when we needed it most?" -dialogue of the die hards... "Live in denial, I'll be your ghost"- Claudio's response... just a thought

    General CommentThis song is epically beautiful! I'm very, very impressed. To be honest, I thought that this album was not going to turn out very great because of the short amount of time between records, but that fear has definitely subsided. Chris has made a great first impression. Claudio's vocals and returning guitar riffs are dark and moody. It's classic Coheed with that new metal-like spin from No World For Tomorrow. I reallly like it.

    Am I the only one who thinks that this has to do with the Mages or Mariah Antillarea's coup against the URA or is my chronology messed up?

    General CommentI think he says "black black black ..." instead of "blah blah blah..."

    It makes sense with the album name too.

    General CommentI'm starting to think the chorus is:

    'The world looks better when you're falling
    Graced to comfort and not to crawling' instead of 'grace to comfort, enough to crawl in.' Any input?
