You Are Broken by Micheal Lee Collins

I was found at the bottom with a cold chill fever
looking like I am down for the count
you would pick me up and push me over
we're always in the biggest crowds
but I stood up and you turned down
it's funny how we all went our way
now the tables turned I bet it burns
when you crawl in the bed you made

look who's laughing now

your not hearing words i've spoken
i've been thinking you are broken

through the crowd I see two black eyes
that I gave to someone last week
he was ready to go and now I know
I spent the night in the drinking tank
but I've been known to hold my own
and I've even stepped over the line
so all apologies and pretty please
I really just don't have the time

we've been here before you never would listen
now you think you can make it on your own
I crawled out of the bottle I was drinking
but your drowning wasted still and stoned

Very cool track. Really well done. Recording quality is top notch. Has a Stone Temple Pilots vibe to me.

Great track well put together had a real punch but there was good build and break so it had more impact good musicians and sounded nice and tight

Vocals sat well in the middle and just right for the sound and song and the lyrics just gave it an edge
Don't usually listen to this genre but did enjoy this
