lyrics

Brokedown City
by Brandon McSwain, Steve Everett, Jay Speight, Tyrus Morgan, KC Clark, Daniel Hodges

Take a walk in her eyes
they’re the windows, they are the windows
To the rest of her mind
Crawl around take a look inside
Outside you find
tongues that rage and ears that don’t mind
White smoke and lies
mirror walls and flashing lights

We’re alive in a brokedown city
Too scared to fight so the fear keeps winning
When will we learn
taught the hate of our father's fathers
Handed the torch to our sons and daughters
We’ve got to learn before this brokedown city burns

We’re paralyzed
building walls up, scared to fall from
The truth hides behind
million-dollar blood stained lines
Blind lead the blind
down the road to darker tomorrows
Our eyes for eyes,
turning brothers, different sides

We’re alive in a brokedown city
Too scared to fight so the fear keeps winning
When will we learn
Taught hate to our father's fathers
Handed the torch to our sons and daughters
We’ve got to learn before this brokedown city burns

Let Love push us to the limit
break down the walls and we’ll fix it
let love push us to the limit
that’s the only place to make a change
Let Love push us to the limit
break down the walls and we’ll fix it
let love push us to the limit
that’s the only way to make a change

We’re alive in a brokedown city
Too scared to fight so the fear keeps winning
When will we learn
Taught hate to our father's fathers
Handed the torch to our sons and daughters
We’ve got to learn before this brokedown city burns
