Standing on the edge of the crater
Like the prophets once said
And the ashes are all cold now
No more bullets and the embers are dead
Whispers in the air tell the tales
Of the brothers gone
Desolation, devastation
What a mess we made, when it all went wrong

Watching from the edge of the circus
For the games to begin
Gladiators draw their swords
Form their ranks for Armageddon

I'm nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

Standing on the edge of the underworld
Looking at the abyss
And I'm hoping for some miracle
To breakout, to escape from all this
Whispers in the air tell the tales
Of a life that's gone
Desolation, devastation
What a mess we made, when it all went wrong

I'm nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

I'm nuclear
I'm wild
I'm breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoned child

    General CommentA hauntingly beautiful song that I've just discovered thanks to the E3 2014 trailer of the game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

    It is beautifully arrangement and mixed, with a memorable guitar solo and an amazing vocal performance.

    As for the meaning, I think the anti-war message is pretty obvious, though it may have other significances.

    Nevertheless it is a very strong and captivating song. Kudos!

    Song MeaningIts my opinion.
    This song explain about big boss story
    I'm nuclear
    I'm wild
    I'm breaking up inside
    A heart of broken glass
    Defiled
    Deep inside
    The abandoned child
    That part of lyrics mean big boss now like wild after outer heaven destroyed by skullface. Big boss fell like he not true herself as you can see in true ending in mgs 5 tpp. And the abandoned child is chico from mgs pw.
    This my Opinion.
