Broken Foundation

Album: Welcome Home Armageddon (2011)
  • Waking up at three am, drowning in the haze
    Of broken dreams and broken promises
    Scared of making a fucking difference
    Could you answer me, and tell me the truth

    Leaving this place so empty handed
    Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth
    Leaving this place so empty handed
    Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth
    Until it falls apart

    Broken foundation, buried underneath
    And a smile to make the emptiness complete
    Puncture my ribs, like something more
    With beaten bruised and drunken heart

    Waking up at three am, waking up at three am
    Waking up to nothing

    Leaving this place so empty handed
    Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth
    Leaving this place so empty handed
    Beaten down, with a bad taste in my mouth
    Until it falls apart

    Broken foundation, buried underneath
    And a smile to make the emptiness complete
    Puncture my ribs, like something more
    With beaten bruised and drunken heart

    Coins across the floor, seasons burden me
    And make the emptiness complete

    Broken foundation, buried underneath
    And a smile to make the emptiness complete
    Puncture my ribs, like something more
    With beaten bruised and drunken heart

    Broken foundation
    With beaten, bruised and drunken heart
    Broken foundation
    With beaten, bruised and drunken heart Writer/s: GAVIN BURROUGH, KRIS COOMBS-ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES-KREYE, RICHARD BOUCHER, RYAN RICHARDS
