The Broken is the second song on the 2010 album, Year of the Black Rainbow.

It was the first full track released by the band from this album. It was released on February 9th for purchase on various digital distribution sites. On March 10, 2010, a music video for the song premiered on Myspace. Despite its independent release and accompanying music video, it was not the official first single from the album.

The opening notes of the second guitar solo in this song, at about 2:52, "hint at" a recurring piece. This piece is heard earlier in the series on The Hollow and appears later in the saga on the tracks Everything Evil, God Send Conspirator, The Ring in Return, The Light & the Glass and Keeping the Blade.[1] It should be noted that this is not a direct reprise of this suite, as is seen in the other tracks referenced above.

Lyrics Edit

I'll follow your every move,
In a stride that wills disguise,
Little markings clue the find,
Your red lips speak of painted figures,
The teeth of mangled little listeners,
The thoughts that hide your rusty scissors and hooded men,
Swinging honesty across this violence,
Obscurity has no hero.

The world looks better when you're falling,
Grace to comfort enough to crawling,
Divided we must,
Pray for the broken, no one can fix us,
We are, we'll always be, the wronged.

Blah, Blah, Blah.

Your touch seethes of emptiness,
The callous tips against the brush,
The world's now breaking off to crust.

The world looks better when you're falling,
Grace to comfort enough to crawling,
Divided we must,
Pray for the broken, no one can fix us,
We are, we'll always be, the wronged.

We're conspiring.

Where was your heart when we needed it most?
Live in denial and I'll be your ghost,
There is nothing to let go,
Only time will let you know,
If you're worth anything and you know then,
Giving up way too early,
Let the axis turn you free,
And destroy everything you love.

The world looks better when you're falling,
Grace to comfort enough to crawling,
Divided we must,
Pray for the broken, no one can fix us,
We are, we'll always be, the wronged.
