"Broken Glass" as written by Don George Gilmore, Barry Stock, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Adam Gontier....
All we are is broken glass
Thrown to the floor we were never meant to last
And all we are are empty shells
Try to pick us up you’re gonna cut yourself

We walk the streets at night
Looking for a thrill, looking for a fight
It was the first day of the rest of our lives
We work fast, never gonna die
Riding up the highway, forty-five
We didn’t know it couldn’t go on forever

All we are is broken glass
Thrown to the floor we were never meant to last
And all we are are empty shells
Try to pick us up you’re gonna cut yourself

We fought to rule the world
Not knowing just how fragile we really were
Like it was the first day of the rest of our lives
Than the bricks began to fall
And we can see the cracks along the wall
We didn’t know it couldn’t go on forever

All we are is broken glass
Thrown to the floor we were never meant to last
And all we are are empty shells
Try to pick us up you’re gonna cut yourself

We believe that we can go on forever
We believe that we can go on forever
Forever

All we are is broken glass
Thrown to the floor we were never meant to last
And all we are are empty shells
Try to pick us up you’re gonna cut yourself

You cut yourself
You’re gonna cut yourself
You’re gonna cut yourself

    My OpinionThis song is the best. It reminds me of my ex Alex Santos. I loved him them and I love him now but it's too much for me to handle anymore.

    General CommentWell,in my opinion,this song is about Three Days Grace and how the band ended,that the cries for the band to reunite will just end with the fans receiving a big silence as answer

    General Comment"I find that the fragility of glass objects is startling - maybe a reminder of contingency, mortality." -unknown
    In other words they may be making a comparison between human life or mortality and the fragility of glass. How neither is eternal. Hence "We didn't know it couldn't go on forever" & "we were never meant to last" Once glass is broken you cannot repair it. Sometimes people act recklessly in "looking for a thrill" as if they are invincible and forget that we are also fragile like the glass and can break at any given moment.
