The Proud and the Broken Lyrics
[The Proud:]

Where have all the heroes gone
That used to bleed for us
Still holding on to fading lullabies
And fear the end when every note is lost

How can we know
If a glance beyond the shadow on the wall
Could free our souls

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides

They left us behind and broke our pride
They told us to be brave
But like an insect drawn to light
We circle around the radiance of truth

How can we know
If a glance beyond the shadow on the wall
Could free our souls

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides

I am you
You are me
Feel the grace
I set you free
I am the empire

[The Broken:]

I am learning to crawl
Denying the fall
In time I’ll stand again

I am bare to the skin
I’m refusing to give in
You can’t break my heart again

But I try
I keep trying
And I dying to forgive
All the matters is what’s going to be

I try
I keep trying
I am dying to forgive
I am you
You are me

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides
