"Broken" as written by Eric Weaver, Kevin Dorr, Patrick Quave and Anthony Mccoy....
Alone again again alone
Patiently waiting by the phone
Hoping that you will call me home
The pain inside my love denied
Hopes and dreams swallowed by pride
Everything I need it lies in you

'Cause I'm broken
I know I need you now
'Cause deep inside I'm broken
You see the way I live
I know I know your heart is broken
When I turn away
I need to be broken
Take the pain away

I question why you chose to die
When you knew your truth I would deny
You look at me
The tears begin to fall
And all in all faith is blind
But I fail time after time
Daily in my sin I take your life

All the hate deep inside
Slowly covering my eyes
All these things I hide
Away from you again
All this fear holding me
My heart is cold and I believe
Nothings gonna change
Until I'm whole again

    General CommentYeah who cares about the popularity of it all? At the end of thed ay its all about what you feel about the music...not what anyone else feels or thinks. It probably will be really big but wont stop me liking it.Im just a little bit worried bout the assholes eho will just dismiss it as the "next trendy shit", that seriously bugs me.

    General CommentI agree with everyone who says that 12 Stones is Christain ... they are! If you look in the sleeve of the cd, in the thank you section, each member except one specifically thanks God and Jesus Christ and some detail, the lead guitarist even throws in a verse from the Bible (Phillipians 4:13). If you look at the lyrics for each and every single song, each time there is a "you" it can very easily be seen as directed towards God. About the "hell" at the end of the video "Broken" ... here's an interesting interpretation of the video ... the hotel that the lead singer is running through and checking all of the doors, the hotel is like our heart ... some doors we try to lock and behind them are sins that we try to hide and not let God see (although He does). That old guy at the end is like the devil and saying hell is symbolic of that. I know it sounds like a compromise, but on a symbolic level it's not. I think probably one of the best things for Christian bands that are considered secular is for them to not overwhlem the people and slam everyone over the head with Christianity ... God does not do that and neither does the Holy Spirit, although some people do take it too far (the worst thing a professed Christian can do) and tell everyone that they're going to hell. Doing this allows the Word to be spoken everywhere it can before people reject it before hearing it. As for POD playing on Ozzfest and going on Howard Stern, that's a great out reach for them!! Jesus didn't "hang out" with his disciples constantly ... he ate at the houses of people that the town considered "sinners." Jesus came to seek and save those who were lost, the essence of Christianity, and Christians are called to do the same thing (Matthew 28:16-20). So, I don't know how to end this ... 12 Stones is Christian, and they have a great ministry by not trying to bash everyone over the head with Christianity. God bless you all! -no_necklace

    General CommentThis band is definetaly the next "pop" rock group... Gonna be just like Linkin Park, love the songs when they come out, but after it hits the top 10 charts and becomes overplayed, you're gonna hate it.

    General Commentyou know what? I'm gonna go get the cd. Even if it DOES become the next Linkin park, they can't overplay ALL the songs. (although they did with park...) but I'm gonna fuckin enjoy this shit before anyone else can get to it. Same as park
    They sound great. They got great meaning. I love it

    General CommentThis song isn't gonna go into pop. They have too much power for that. This song explodes and would scare any teeny bopper that got near it.
