Better Human
by Cold

Album: The Things We Can't Stop (2019)
  • In this reflective song, Cold lead singer Scooter Ward sings about becoming a "better broken human being." He discussed the track in a Songfacts interview: "It sounds in the verses like it's talking about politics, but it really isn't. It's me seeing everyone fighting with each other over the last few years. Everybody is fighting with each other, there's the epidemic with pills - it doesn't seem OK anymore. We all have our vices and the things that break us, and I thought, We're all broken humans in a way."

    "I just got so tired of seeing everybody fighting," he continued. "I wanted to make an anthem, and I hope it inspires a couple of people to go, 'You know what, this is all bulls--t. Why don't we be better people and at least try to be nice to each other.' So, it's my rally to unite people again. That's what that song is about."
  • Cold named their tour to support their album The Things We Can't Stop the "Broken Human Tour" after this song.
