Hymns for the Broken Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Draconian
1. The Awakening (1:40)
We've crowned a king with no soul
When all doors are closed, we walk alone
We know you've seen us, you always did
And every time you close your eyes
You make us fade
Don't you ever wonder if we sleep at night?
If we sit in silence, you think you're right
In the end, you were never right
(You were never right)
2. King of Errors (5:41)
We are crowned by our errors
And we're lost in the lone
Dare not look in the mirror
We've crowned a king with no soul

We have lost this to silence
There's no one left to fault
Dare not look in the mirror
'Cause it's full of holes

They call us kings then watch us fall down broken
Lost right to the throne then crown the king of errors

We have lost this to silence
There's no one left to fault
Dare not reach out and falter
When no one's left to call

Dare not reach out I falter
Cannot stand all your laughter
Reach out and touch me
You'll need to scream loud to reach me

They call us kings then watch us fall down broken
Lost right to the throne then crown the king of errors

They call us kings then watch us fall down broken
Lost right to the throne then crown me the king of errors
3. A New Dawn (4:36)
Brought into this world
Met by open arms
See, I was born as hero
But deep inside this kingdom
I know that that's untrue
Given to many reasons
Lost my faith in you

Civitas
Civitas diablo

On and on we rise, we fall

This king is crowned by errors
Lost right to the throne
So place your crown of errors
Your king—no soul!
All that we ever wanted was just to feel like you
But we're locked inside this prison of empty echoes

On and on we rise, we fall

I need to see
See the inside of me
Straight into the depth to unlock it all
To set all free
I know you fell the same
4. Wake A Change (4:49)
Today I lost my way
Today I lost my will to say what I have known as truth
Becoming numb must wake a change
I used to live to stray
I used to choose the easy way
Becoming numb must wake a change

Becoming numb must wake a change
Must wake a change
Must rise to wake a change

'Cause no one knows our hearts
Not as well as us, that's what keeps us apart
Distant
But we'll conquer anything
Defeat this world that make us slave

Becoming numb must wake a change
Must wake a change
Must rise to wake a change

So if we're not keeping silent
If we just let it surface
Something surely comes to set us free
We're not keeping silent
Must defeat the words that make us slave
Leave this world that makes us hurt
Believe the sun will rise to greet a brand new day
Becoming numb must wake a change
Becoming numb must wake a change
Must wake a change
5. Archaic Rage (6:27)
Deep down inside of me
Deep into infinity
Here it lies the birth of me
And here it dies 'cause you're hurting me
And you just keep breathing me
And I just keep bleeding through
You rule no longer
The kingdom's ours and growing stronger

We rise
'Cause nothing's the same
You hide when no one's to blame
We rise from ashes and stone
'Cause who I am to you does not reflect the truth

The steamy mist in the hollows makes it tougher to see who to follow
And at the altars of days forgotten the sacrifice is to separate the rotten
These shells have lost the capacity both to suffer to hope and to breathe free
There's no remedy

We rise
'Cause nothing's the same
You hide when no one's to blame
We rise from ashes and stone
'Cause who we am to you does not reflect the truth

We're the shells that have lost the capacity
Both to suffer to breathe and to bleed free
There's no remedy
There's no remedy

We rise
'Cause nothing's the same
You hide when no one's to blame
We rise from ashes and stone
6. Barricades (4:58)
Do you ever think it's over?
That we already lost
We'll never be convinced to change
Do you ever feel it's over?

We are the ones with too fast beating hearts
The ones who won't say that we are lost

But we have been fighting for much too long
We're getting tired
'Cause we have been watching our comrade's fall

So we throw ourselves with open arms
These open wounds and open palms
You watched and left us all to bleed
Drained these veins for all to see
But we're not falling
No!

We are the ones with too fast beating hearts
The ones who won't say that we are lost

I threw myself at heaven's arms
And wore my open wounds to see
You swore yourself to me
You swore yourself to me

But we have been fighting for much too long
We're getting tired
'Cause we have been watching our comrade's fall

And we have been fighting for much too long
We're getting tired
We're longing to see
The barricades fall
7. Black Undertow (5:01)
Only breath in the darkness
Feels like a black undertow
Only breath in the darkness
Let what is left just unfold

Freedom unfold
Feels like a black undertow
Free
Unfold like a black undertow

The morning mist chase the night away
But inside this heart it never strays it stays
And how solitude understands me it could never change
I know the swings how he tumbles how he sways

Freedom at last
Feels like a black undertow
Free
On hold
Like a black undertow

We're still in this together
Still in this together
Still in this together

Freedom on hold
Feels like a black undertow
Free
Unfold like a black undertow
8. The Fire (4:10)
I came with the harvest
I flew with the flames
We are the same
The black seeds of autumn
And cold winter rain
We are the same

Come
Come tear us open
Always felt that it was us not you
I am broken in two

Come tear us open
Always felt that it was me not you
I... now that I'm broken
I'm broken, not broken, not spoken to
Not spoken to

Six months have passed now
We're weary we're cold
Are the fires the same?
Still burning the same?
Is the fire the same?
Is the fire the same?

So we came during autumn and left with the snow
Our hearts had grown weary, we were wounded and cold
So I took my comrades hand I stared him in the eyes and said
We'll come back in spring but then the bomb sirens bled

Come
Come tear us open
Always felt that it was me not you
I... now that I'm broken
I'm broken, not broken, not spoken to
Not spoken to
9. Hymns for the Broken (4:57)
I need to disappear
Devoured and forgotten
Gotta hurry, these lands
Before it is too dark to see
I have to disappear

[Chorus 2x:]
Reach out, show me how you feel the same
Scream loud, these hymns are for the broken

Hey, you know me, my every turn
Hey, you see me, in front of you I’ll never hurt
Hey, hear me, it is time I learn
Hey, I know you’re watching me
Setting fires to the sea winds I burn

[Chorus 2x:]
Reach out, show me how you feel the same
Scream loud, these hymns are for the broken

[Instrumental break]

I need to disappear
Devoured and forgotten
Got to hurry, these lands
Before it is too dark to see
I have to disappear

[Chorus 2x:]
Reach out, show me how you feel the same
Scream loud, these hymns are for the broken
10. Missing You (3:25)
I missed you since forever
I longed for you when I was hurt
Longed so long I can't remember
Were there ever days of heaven?

Replace this pain with something new
Magic thoughts of white turned blue
I'm clinging to what seems a tale
Searching for the Holy Grail

And I've been missing you forever
And I've been missing you forever

Grand brushes of white and blue
Where one is Me
And one is you
Hope of highs soon joined by lows
And thoughts of why last sung by bows
That fire arrows that land in snow
Wake up hollow

Replace this pain with something new
Magic thoughts of white turned blue
I'm clinging to what seems a tale
Searching for the Holy Grail

And I've been missing you forever
11. The Grand Collapse (7:47)
We wanted to be caught in dreams that never end
I want to travel to a place where I feel less insecure
But I will never fell like you

Came so close you, I
Came so close you, I
Came so close you, I
Came so close you, I

We fall like feathers
We fall forever
And we know you see us all
But do you really see the fall
The grand of I collapse
To contradict the past
12. The Aftermath (7:25)
So I'm sad time does not heal
And I wait and I drink while I bleed
I understand that we must leave
And I wait while I bleed
Time to leave

So we set sail on open seas
Where no one's known and no one's seen
We cruised forever
Without a lead of how to steer a ship that bleed
I one day hope the sun gives way
To rid the clouds that hides our way
If we could only strand on shores
Where I am safe but still so sore

And I remember the winds of autumn breeze
Still remember the days when we played kings
And now the embers give light to hopes and dreams
It's December
You can't silence the screams
And I remember a light to darkness change
And I remember...
...the days when we played Kings
