"Broken" as written by Kirk Fisher, Brian Hill, Ashley Williamson and Raymond Buddy Apostolis....
See? The tide is turning now and I'm fading, fading
I have no excuses anymore
This is where I wanted to be
You've twisted me out from the inside
And you've hung me in the wind

You are my weakness
You may be my downfall

I'm helpless as you move away
I am empty, aimless
I have no illusions anymore
They just ran right out of me
And every day I'll fight not to miss you
Every day I'll lose

You are my weakness
You may be my downfall

So just leave me here with my tortured heart
Or stay and watch as I cut it out

You are my weakness
You may be my downfall
I don't know really, really what you want from me
I don't know what you really want from me
But you will be my downfall

    General CommentStill being unable to hurt the one you have been rejected by. Been there too many times. Holding the knowledge that while it is self destructive, it is something that they cannot change, even when the person is gone, 'and everyday I'll fight, not to miss you, every day i'll lose'.

    General Commenti was sad to see only one person commented on this beautiful piece of imagery ... i've had a personal experience which has related to this song ... the person wasn't gone ... he just challenged me ... left me out in the open to think for myself, hence the "you've twisted me out from the inside and you've hung me in the wind" ... to think that they are your downfall because you can't control things with them ... it's so unprecedented ... so much raw emotion...

    General CommentI am quite certain this song is about DRUGS, ladies and gentlemen.

    You are my weakness
    you may be my downfall

    Don't forget this band is called Tapping the Vein.
