"Broken" as written by and Jonas Myrin Bryan Torwalt....
It's not that I am hiding on the roof or underneath your table
It's not that I am counting down from ten or playing hide and seek
It's not that I am thinking of the past and consequently feeling older
It's not like I'll inherit all the Earth if I destroy the meek

It's not that I am special
It's not that I'm indifferent
It's not that I'm cowardly or vain
It's not that I am angry
It's not that I'm violent
I don't objectify my pain

Oh, but I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you and I could show the world your song
Oh, I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you, 'cause I was broken all along

It's not that I am folding up this chair and folding up my insight
It's not that I respect you any less for giving someone more
Oh, it's not that I regret the things I've done or anything I've planned to
It's not like changing after we descend will justify before

It's not that I am stupid
It's not that I'm scheming
It's not that I'm searching for a sign
It's not that I am righteous
It's not that I'm unfeeling
I don't expect you to be mine

Oh, but I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you and I could show the world your song
Oh, I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you, 'cause I was broken all along

And the things you tell me don't mean a thing if you're not scared
And turning your back on me won't leave me weak or unprepared

Oh, but I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you and I could show the world your song
Oh, I could break you if I wanted to
Be cruel to you, 'cause I was broken all along

It's not like every devastating end brings a new beginning
