about

Lately I've been struggling a lot, with people I care about, and with myself. It's sometimes easy to wonder if a person can be broken beyond repair, and if any of us can ever be fixed, or fix our own problems, or if we're destined to repeat the same sad loop forever. This is a song about all of that and more.

lyrics

[v1]
I'm sick of vacancies and memories of you inside my head
And now I've been divided into pieces
I've been avoiding it and toying with the things I should've said And I'm still wide awake
I'm waiting patiently for somebody to tell me what I did
My thoughts have been distorted by the silence
I'm scared of something but I haven't figured out what it is yet Somehow I'm still afraid
[C]
Are you broken? Are you satisfied? Are you open to What I had in mind?
Are you broken?
Are you dead inside?
Are you breaking through To the other side?
[v2]
You know I care for you but I can't bear to go through this again
I never meant to do a thing to hurt you
I'm not responsible for fixing all the problems in your head
I don't live for the chase
[C]
Are you broken? Are you satisfied? Are you open to What I had in mind?
Are you broken?
Are you dead inside?
Are you breaking through To the other side?
[Bridge]
Overstating our importance
Overrated self indulgence
It's not a loop repeating
This has no future meaning
I'm going catatonic
But I'll be back I promise
My darling close your eyes
Welcome to the other side

[C]
Are you broken? Are you satisfied? Are you open to What I had in mind?
Are you broken?
Are you dead inside?
Are you breaking through To the other side?
