"Broken" finds a man at his breaking point over people who haven't lived up to his expectations.


I've got no more dreams to share, I've plum run out
And though you said you cared, I’ve always had my doubts
Now you can't strangle my faith ’cause it’s already chokin’
And you can't break a heart that's already broken

I've got no sanity to spare, that well's run dry
And that might account for the wild look in my eye
People come up to me and say, "Hey, man, what you been smokin'?"
And I say "You can't break a man who's already broken"

So slice me, dice me, flush my soul down the drain
It don't matter none ’cause I'm already numb to the pain
You can slap me and shake me but you ain't gonna wake me from this
'Cause I've been done in, stung by a poisonous kiss

I’ve got no more patience left, so spare me your tears
Don’t tell me you’ve found your conscience after all these years
You can't take back your words, they've already been spoken
And you can't break a heart that's already broken

So whip me, beat me, chain my body to the wall
Make me watch while you and your lover do it all
Then pull my head back by the hair and throw salt in my eyes
But first you'll have dig me out from under an avalanche of lies

I've no longer got the floor, I've used up my time
It's just one more case where the punishment don't fit the crime
And if you think this is justice, I tell ya, you must be jokin'
But you can't break a man who's already broken
