Broken Lungs
Thrice Lyrics


Woke up to a brand new skyline
We licked our wounds and mourn the dead
Swallow the story hook and sinker
Is that what we meant when we said
That we never would forget?

Are we fools and cowards all
To let them cover up their lies?
Cause we all watched the buildings fall
Watched the scales fall from our eyes

A fire burns beneath Manhattan
Still we breathe with broken lungs
We act like none of this matters
Is that what we meant When we said
That we'd sing what must be sung?

Are we fools and cowards all
To let them cover up their lies?
Cause we all watched the buildings fall
Watched the scales fall from our eyes

We want answers
Scream from the roofs
We want justice
We want the truth

One of my all time favorites to this day is still 'Paper Tigers'... but I don't think I could ever narrow it down to any one song by them being my absolute favorite. Their musical RANGE amazing & pretty much just blows my mind!

Desolate Soul

In my top 5 songs from Thrice. Amazing

Alvalanker

This is such a fantastic album, one of the best from this era of music.

Amelia Murphy

Just here to say the last instrumental part to me sounds like the musical falling of the towers with the quiet being like the quiet as the dust settled. Not sure if that is what they are going for but that’s the imagery I see when I hear the last 20 or so seconds.

Beautiful song

Carry The Torch

We let them cover up their lies

You guys have been awake for a really long time! Your music is absolutely resonating with me, every single album. Damn near all I listen to these days since most everyone else is bought and paid for come to find out.
