1. Broken

From the recording Broken


Two worlds got me torn apart I have this life in one hand and in the other God’s heart
It’s plain as day, anyone can see that this old tug-of-war is making a mess out of me
Don’t want the old man to win the fight; don’t want to have to see a blinding light;
He shouldn’t have to prove Himself to me – torn’s not what I want to be 
I want to be broken, I want to be broken, I want to be broken, I want to be broken
Boy wonder where you runnin’ to, did Mr. Freeze make things a little chilly for you
I can see It’s hard to do things right, sometimes doing good seems like an impossible fight
I shouldn’t have to make myself behave; I shouldn’t feel like I’m some helpless slave;
The best of both’s not my philosophy – torn’s not what I want to be
Torn between two world’s feels so wrong, I’ll never get used to it no matter how long
The closer to heaven the more I can see that torn’s not the place that I really want to be – yeah
Well, Simple Simon says I know what you need, I’ve got it covered all you got to do is follow me
Just keep this list of rules that I have made and keep avoiding all the people that don’t walk the same way
Don’t want to lose the love that saved my soul; don’t want my part to be a major role
I want to help man with his greatest need – torn’s not what I want to be
