SONG FOR THE BROKEN

CHORUS
I am the broken, I am the bruised
I am the poor ones, I have been used

BRIDGE
(Why does it take so much) to bring me to my knees?
(Why does it take so much) pain for me to see
(That strength is only found) when I am on my knees
(Why is it so hard to) show that I am weak?

RAP
Who cares, we care, if you’re broken
I guess those words have been unspoken
It’s the truth now, ain’t no token
We’ve come here for you

Place of darkness, skies unclear
Well we’re bringing sunlight to your place of fear
Now you know that we’re near
Please don’t cry, wipe away your tear

If you’ve fallen we’ll lift you up
Give you the platform to do your stuff
If you struggle, if you find it tough
We’re here for you through the smooth and rough

So, if you’re broken, if you’re bruised
If you’re the poor one, if you’ve been used
Incompetence can’t be excused, so
We’ve woken up ‘cause if you snooze you lose!
