Broken Glass
The Boxer Rebellion Lyrics


Unconscious in waves
Short sighted when you wake up
Given over to thieves
Deserted when you wont agree
Withered down to your shell
A brave face for your last farewell
And whatever you say
Subscribed to too much way too late

And I break apart
Broken Glass
Through my heart
We'll toast
Convenient lies
When everyone
is occupied

You're animated at ease
Anything for those you try to please
And I'm wearing thin
From what I cannot keep in

And I break apart
Broken Glass
Through my heart
We'll toast
Convenient lies
When everyone
is occupied

You make up more than I can tell
Even someone that I know so well
Branding everything a cheap come down
The marked offender that fucks around
I get the message, the buckled knees
The voice of reason that I concede
The candidate in a losing race
Forced to blackmail to save some face
But I know

And I break apart
Broken Glass
Through my heart
We'll toast
Convenient lies
An everyone
is occupied

I literally stopped in my tracks when I first took notice of this song .. Such a beautiful beautiful song.. It's such a pleasure to know The Boxer Rebellion..

Damien Deshong

My favourite of theirs

Zora M

I love when a song does that :) Spitting Fire did that for me and then Diamonds just blew me away (as did the rest of their tracks - haven't found one I don't like yet)

No matter how much you may like this band, you won't know how good they really are until you see them live.

Tim Groombridge

I've loved this band ever since hearing 'Spitting Fire', from a later album (and having seen them live @ The Fleece in Bristol) but how rare is it to hear earlier 'back-cat' material from a band that turns out to be as infectious and captivating as the more recent stuff you're used to hearing? These guys are the solution.

Scott Lanzarone
