I've been livin' so long walkin' down these broken roads
I can't live like this I don't know which way to go
I'm not sure where life will take me
turn left, turn right I'm hazy
somebody lead me off these crazy broken roads


I'm sick of feeling broken, my heart is bleeding
I'm open for something to give me hope
and I'm hopin' to be unfrozen
I'm holdin' on to my sorrow
tomorrow I'll give it up
but I battle it and let it take me right out the game
and now I'm chained on the sidewalk just like a bike lock
I'm runnin' out of time, there's no minutes on my clock
I wanna make a change like erasin' some white chalk
I'm caught up in the crowd like I'm chillin' at woodstock


I need a Samaritan 'cause apparently I'm lost
apparently I'm terribly in need of the cross
I'm torn in two, to tell the truth, I'm brutally honest
too many times I feel alone with people breakin' their promise
but I know I gotta change, I got some things in the closet
haunting my very soul man, these monsters are toxic
tearin' me into pieces but I know in the back of my mind
I'm prayin' Lord will you give me a sign


I'm done with this life full of anger and strife
I'm sick of creepin' in the night with no light within sight
I need to open up my eyes and see the world that's before me
so I'll take the straight and narrow way
because my brokenness is bringin' hopelessness
and now the pain I'm feelin' is killin' me
and now I'm thinkin' is this all there is
and if there is more to life than this
better open up my heart and I'll let you come in


I need you 'cause I'm dying on my own
so lost on this crazy broken road
I can't do this on my own
feels like I don't know just what to do
how to get on my feet and run to you
I'm on this crazy broken road
