It was a beautiful day
But the clocks were still
And a crusade had begun
It came from somewhere behind
Unthinkable for the mind
But poisonous its tongue

Iblis may have laughed
‘bout his Hydra being cast
onto both sides of the line
And once the seed was sown
clear boundaries were falling
‘tween the evil and divine

A broken day had come
A broken day had begun
Broken days make us stronger
On a broken day battles can’t be won
Broken days we will overcome

The walls were falling in flames
A dead wind blowin’ through the lanes
Nobody was at home
And every promise or lie
ever given ‘neath the sky
now fading far beyond

I had a feeling of violence
that you sometimes need
to turn ashes into fire
A burning down deep
made me get up and breathe
and start turning my tires

A broken day had come
A broken day had begun
Broken days may make us stronger
On a broken day silence all around
Broken days we will overcome

Pain and fear are the sources
For sending our forces
Raging uncontrolled
Revenge is the bench-
mark of defense
Who can break this law?

Quiet’s the city tonight
While my heart pumps inside
Like an artesian well
And on the land of stones
with the ruins around
Palms grow up again

When a broken day has come
When a broken day has begun
Broken days may make us stronger
On a broken day a new day has begun
Broken days we will overcome
