Papa Roach bass player Tobin Esperance
told us that "Broken Home" is about divorce, a topic which touched every band member: "Jacoby chose lyrically to set the topic in divorce, which is something that everybody in the band has dealt with and kids all over deal with. It's another painful subject to bring up, but people just let loose when it came to that song." Esperance added he hopes the track helps Papa Roach fans to deal with issues they may be going through: "I think it's more so we hand it over to the listener. When you get older, you want to deal with things in a positive way and you want to move on. Sometimes it might be like, damn, this is so depressing to hear that song over and over (laughing) but that's why we always hand it over to the fans, like 'This is for you.' Take whatever you get from it and if it makes you want to scream and shout and get all your anger and aggression out, so be it."
