The Hymn of a Broken Man Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. Strength in Numbers (4:16)
As we live in these dark days filled with violence, opposition and hate.
There lies a place of saving grace
Protected in the hearts of the humble
The faithful, the ones who choose the path of resistance to protest
Protect, save, proclaim our lives lived not in vain.
In flesh, in spirit eternal
One love, One truth, One destiny

One love! (one love) one truth! (one truth) one destiny

Arise and be triumphant
No rest until all is fulfilled
Our roots must balance our branches
Be vigilant in truth and love
(in truth and love)

There is a strength in numbers we must unite mankind
There is a strength in numbers, our faith lies deep inside
(We!) We struggle, (We) we suffer, (So) so we must come together
(We!) We struggle, (We) we suffer, (but) but we will live forever

Babylon's method of deception
So devious the strong are swayed
(so devious, the strong are swayed)

There is a strength in numbers we must unite mankind
There is a strength in numbers, our faith lies deep inside
(We!) We struggle, (We!) we suffer, (So!) so we must come together
(We!) We struggle, (We!) we suffer, (but!) but we will live forever

(One love, one truth)
(One love, one truth)

One love! (one love) one truth! (one truth) one destiny

(Yeaaaaah)

There is a strength in numbers we must unite mankind
There is a strength in numbers, our faith lies deep inside
(We!) We struggle, (We!) we suffer, (So!) so we must come together
(We!) We struggle, (We!) we suffer, (but!) but we will live forever

May the sun shine upon you and bless your inner light
and may you find true peace
2. Fight For Life (3:37)
Underneath a darkened sky, drifting through a sea of lies,
Pulled into the undertone, my body dragged deep below.
This man came unto the sun, senses changed evermore.

Give me strength to push on through (give me strength),
Seeking shelter from the storm.

Carry my way, I can’t go on.
Uplift my spirit until I carry on.
Was once lost, but now I’m found.
Darkness pass away into the light of dawn.
Push on through.

Fight for life!
Fight for life!

My war is not yet finished, but with the spirit I rest.

I fear no death!
I fear no man!
I will prevail!

Give me strength to carry on, push on through the light of dawn.
(Push on through)

Fight for life!
Fight for life!
Push on through!

Fight for life!
Fight for life!
Push on through!
3. Willing (3:24)
I wake with the wings of morning
To the light of a new day
Now my eyes are open

Through the darkest times
I find you
I find you always

Cover me
With your hands
Make me see
All I am

Though I fall
I'm willing

I could break
Fall back into sorrow
Give me life
Make my faith much stronger

Now my eyes are open
Now I feel I'm lost
I find a way
I find a way
I find a way to you

Cover me
With your hands
Make me see
All I am

Though I fall
I'm willing

This is the now
No longer will I wait my time
Can't lose faith
There'll be days of grace
I'd give it all
I'd give it all
To see redemption reign

Cover me
With your hands
Make me see
All I am

Though I stumble
Though I stumble

Though I fall I'll live for you
4. Where the Spirit Leads Me (3:37)
Cast me into the sea (into the the heart of of darkness)
Falling from on high, (drowning in sorrow)
hopeless and lost (hopeless and lost)
Consumed by fears
My soul was weak within me
Can’t learn from this destiny
Just give me your mercy
I go where the spirit leads me
Let go of my desire, Your word is my guide
Save me from this fate
hopeless and lost (hopeless and lost),
Consumed by fears
Will you save me
My soul was weak within me
Can’t run from this destiny
Just give me your mercy,

I go where the spirit leads me
Let my mouth be the blade (be the blade)
Let my song be filled with me (filled with me)
Be the blade? Fill with me?
My soul was weak within me
I can’t run from this destiny,
Just give me your mercy
I go where the spirit leads me
Where the spirit, where the spirit rides.
5. Until the End of Days (4:21)
Like withered tree in winter’s hold,
Pieces falling all around.
Sight lost in a once brilliant sky,
Now reduced to shades of pale grey.

What have I become?
What have I become?

My voice resounds, arms outstretched,
Embrace the end of days.
Reach to the skies, arms outstretched,
Embrace the end of days.

Fall apart, drifting down to the sound of mournful harmonies.
Now my (now my) voice resounds (voice resounds),
What have I become?

I was looking for answers, trapped in a lonely state of mind,
I was drifting and searching; now my purpose is found.

My voice resounds, guide my path,
Until the end of days.
Reach to the skies, deliverance,
Until the end of days.

I am steadfast, given sight,
I shall stand until the end of days.

Tear me apart, rip into my soul,
I shall stand until the end of days.

Arms outstretched to embrace,
The end of days.
6. Live in Love (3:50)
Just live in love.
Believe in love.

In my life I have seen all the ways that man destroys mankind.
Break society’s system, chase the mercy, there’s no compromise.

Through all this condescend compassion for weakness,
It takes so much more strength to be selfless and live in love.

Strive to live in selflessness, and live in love.
Through all your days, just live in love.
Through all your pain, believe in love.

Love.

All that you think you know; it’s just a fraction of this world,
Take the time to think about your life.
Live righteous.

Strive to live in selflessness, and live in love.
Through all your days, just live in love.
Through all your pain, believe in love.

The words we speak, the ones we don’t say.
Power you don’t know you can sing.
Through all our days, believe in love.

Don’t you see we are all.
Don’t you see we are all the blood brothers and sisters.
We are blood brothers and sisters.
We are one.
We are one.

And I pray this is not in vain!

All that you know about, all you can hide,
All that you feel inside (Live in love).
All that you know about, all you can hide,
All that you feel inside (Live in love).
Through all our days, Live in love.
Through all our pain, Believe in love.
7. In the Arms of Mercy (1:54)
8. Hymn of a Broken Man (3:14)
Falling (falling), fell to the depths of your regrets (regrets),
Now there’s nothing left but apathy.

Blinded by pride, torn on the inside at the cost of your arrogance.
World’s last hope for deliverance, now your broken wings mirror your filthy regret.

Why do we live so blind
Like a fallen angel’s eyes turned inside?
This is a hymn of a broken man.

Falling (falling), cast out from blessedness,
Now there’s nothing left, nothing but apathy.

God save you.
God save your soul turned inside.
This is a hymn of a broken man.

If you could only see the truth, for gold has blinded you.
Feel with your heart, disregard has killed you once again.

Why do we live so blind
Like a fallen angel’s eyes turned inside?
This is a hymn of a broken man.
Why do we live so blind?
This is a hymn of a broken man.
Why do we live so blind?
This is a hymn of a broken man.

God save, God save us all.
God save, God save us all.
9. The Forgotten One (4:38)
Words only lead me to the cracks in my disguise
My flesh a prison for the man behind these eyes
I sing the epitaph for an unnamed king
Carved in this tombstone all the lost pieces of me
How far is the distance between you and I?
How long before this silence dies?

Lost in a sea of sadness
Blind in this place of darkness
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?

Lead me to the crossroad, I can find my way home
Devils on my back and angels in between
The scars and dreams that made me believe
Wheres the crime scene in remembrance to me
When our eyes meet do you know the man beneath
Walk the line between desperate and redeemed

Lost in a sea of sadness
Blind in this place of darkness
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?

And my hymns are songs for the broken
(Through every word that was spoken)
(Do I carry hope for the whole place)

Lost in a sea of sadness
Blind in this place of darkness
If I fall would you be there to raise me up?
Or will I be the forgotten one?
10. Hope Remains (4:50)
Crushed by the weight of your sorrow, there is nowhere left.
Trying to fight the might in the darkness, and weaken all love.
But it’s hidden from your face.

Seeking to find the path you should follow, breathe in peace,
Surrender yourself to the hopes of tomorrow. Surrender.

It is always in your spirit, this world is yours!

Hold on to faith, hold on to love,
Hold on to who you are.
You’re not alone, don’t lose sight,
We will rise above.

We are the breath of life,
Our hope remains.

In these times of grace,
A sacred life we must embrace for generations to come,
As we break down the ways of ourselves.

Look in my eyes, open with passion, and the spirit I’ll follow, until the rest of the sun.

We are the purpose, undefeated.
Carve your name in the face of today.
Embrace.

Hold on the faith, hold on to love.
You’re not alone, don’t lose sight.
Our hope remains.
11. The End of Eternity (5:53)
We are lost, consumed by selfish desire.
Abandon the gift bestowed us.
The gift alone.

But there is beauty,
There is life.
Hold fast for this could be,
The end of eternity.

We are blind (we are blind), our future’s crushed and forgotten.
Destroyed by guilt (destroyed by guilt).

But there is beauty (there is beauty),
There is life (there is life).
Hold fast for this could be,
The end of eternity.

I will slaughter your soul, break you into submission.
I will be waiting in the shadows, until your last breath.

Don’t forsake us.
Don’t turn away from us.
Your will is stronger than this.

Something strange has slowly lifted souls.
Under shadows, a gift to the realms of death.

Like grains of sand, it slips from your arms in graves.

And in my sweet seduction I break your lips, your lips.

I will slaughter your soul, break you into submission.

I will be waiting.
I will be waiting.
I will be waiting.
12. Worlds Apart (4:33)
Out of Life
Out of time

In life with these closed eyes
Face this energy with me and my mind
And I've lost my way
Worlds Apart
Inner strength, severed by this darkened heart.

Seeking answers
open these eyes,
Searching for the truth
Open my eyes.

Out of life
Out of time
It's just a moment,
So just take hold of it,
Out of life
Out of time
It's ours to take,
Our soul reborn

My soul reborn.

And I'm back by the way of my regret
I'll take whole my soul, so I'll relive again.

Seeking answers
Open these eyes
Searching for the truth
Will you open my eyes

Out of life
Out of time
It's just a moment,
So just take hold of it,
Out of life
Out of time
It's ours to take,
Our soul reborn

Some are blinded,
some refuse to hear
it breaks the beauty
or it disappears

Out of life
Out of time
It's just a moment,
So just take hold of it,
Out of life
Out of time
It's ours to take,
Our soul reborn
Be reborn

And Out of life
And out time,
It's just a moment.
13. Fall From Grace (4:57)
At the end of your rope
Hanging by a thread
He'd give anything for this to just go away
This grip is only so strong

I try to hold on tightly
But it's all slipping through my fingers
And I feel a moment, aspirations betray
Eyes that once beamed with hope now only stare in remorse

Even through this pain
I will feel again
Even through these tears
I will love again
Even through this pain
I will feel again
Even through these tears
I will love again

There will be no pity
There will be no sorrow
For today these hands may tremble
But this heart will never give in

Even through this pain
I will feel again
Even through these tears
I will love again
Even through this pain
I will feel again
Even through these tears
I will love again

And I will not fall
Fall from grace
And I will not fall

I
I will not fall from grace
I will not fall from grace

You're at the end of your rope
You're at the end of your rope
You're at the end of your rope
I will feel again
You're at the end of your rope
I will love again
