"Broken Promises" as written by and Dustin Chad Davidson Brent Gerald Rambler....
You've given up on us
You've taken all I've made and all I've become
You've given up on us
Just another empty promise by those I love

Pushing me down flat on the ground trying to escape the pain
I needed you to meet me half way
But I'm left abandoned with nothing more to say
I thought family was forever
I thought family stuck together
What's done is done
I'm too far gone
I've never felt so alone

Accept what you've done and rise to the challenge
(Rise to the challenge)
Stop pointing the blame
There's no on left to betray
You're full of broken promises

These days are dark,
Filled with heavy clouds pouring on me
I'll keep giving while you keep taking
As my trust in you is breaking
I see now my sacrifice got left by the wayside
You've given up on us
You've taken all I've made and all I've become
You've given up on us
Just another empty promise by those I love

Put your arms in the air
Just another empty promise by those I love
Prove your worth, and part the sky for me

    General CommentThis is either written to God or a family member. I not sure if the band has had someone in their family betray / wrong them or not.

    I think you could interpret it either way. I was learning more towards the family member scenario however the last line sort of more suggests God.

    Considering that my extended family has had some members who have broken promises, and really these emotions captured the betrayal, loss and anger that this has brought out. So for me this is about family members who have broken their promise (not necessarily literally, but in the sense what a family values are).
