Paramore - We Are Broken

I am outside
And I've been waiting for the sun
And with my wide eyes
I've seen worlds that don't belong
My mouth is dry with words I cannot verbalize
Tell me why we live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Yeah
Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Lock the doors
Cause I'd like to capture this voice
That came to me tonight
So everyone will have a choice
And under red lights
I'll show myself it wasn't forged
We're at war
We live like this

Keep me safe inside
Your arms like towers
Tower over me

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

Tower over me
Tower over me

And I'll take the truth at any cost

Cause we are broken
What must we do to restore
Our innocence
And oh the promise we adored
Give us life again cause we just wanna be whole

"We Are Broken" is the ninth track off of "Riot!" and is a prayer to God where Hayley asks to be made whole again. Being broken is common Christian imagery for being dirtied by sin and Jesus comes to make people whole. The lines “everyone will have a choice” and “arms like towers” further this because it is a conscious choice to leave your life of sin to follow God and in many contemporary Christian music, being wrapped in the arms of God is an often used phrase for comfort and safety in the love of God.
