lyrics

BROKEN OPEN

Ben Kroger / Bonnie Bishop

I didn’t do my time
In Afghanistan
So I believe the lie
I was less a man
Oh and I’ve lived my life
Trapped inside my head
I made the sacrifice
Now I’m the walking dead

Oooooh ooooh ooooh broken open
Oooooh ooooh ooooh let the hope in
Oooooh ooooh broken open

Sometimes the truth
Hits you like a truck
It took cheating death
Just to wake me up
Now I’m a warrior
Gimme a real fight
Take me to the dark
Let me shine a holy light

Oooooh ooooh ooooh broken open
Oooooh ooooh ooooh let the hope in
Oooooh ooooh broken open

Oh that’s a war so be sure that there’s more
Than a rifle in your hand
I believe I was freed so I can see
What it means to be a man

Oooooh ooooh ooooh broken open
Oooooh ooooh ooooh let the hope in
Oooooh ooooh baby I’m broken

Oooooh ooooh ooooh broken open
Oooooh ooooh ooooh broken open
Oooooh ooooh ooooh let the hope in
Oooooh ooooh
Oh baby I’m broken, broken open
Broken open
