Broken Soul

Words and Music by Perry Mathers


As I look on in disbelief
At the images of pain and grief
And mourn the lives we’ve lost in vain
To your senseless act of rage
There’s just one thing I’d like to know
Tell me what runs through your broken soul?

Broken soul, your broken soul
Tell me what runs through your broken soul?

Is there a voice, dark and unkind
That torments your troubled mind?
Does it spark the flame that fuels your hate
Until this world must bear it’s weight?
Tell me how much hate must one man hold
To satisfy his broken soul?

Broken soul, his broken soul
To satisfy his broken soul

Lord help me please to understand
The wicked heart of every man
Is it a curse born in the blood
Or something we may rise above

Turns out so blind was your rage
That even you could not escape
A higher voice will judge you now
Maybe even forgive you somehow
Were it up to me, you’d never know
Any rest from your broken soul

Broken soul, your broken soul
You’d know no rest from your broken soul
