​Born of a Broken Man

This song is by Rage Against the Machine and appears on the album The Battle of Los Angeles (1999).

Original video
My fears hunt me down
Capturing my memories
The frontier of loss
They try to escape across

The street where
Jesus stripped bare
And raped the spirit he was supposed to nurture
In the name of my, in the name of my

Born of a broken man, but not a broken man
Born of a broken man, never a broken man
Born of a broken man, but not a broken man
Born of a broken man, never a broken man

Like autumn leaves
His sense fell from him
An empty glass of himself
Shattered somewhere within

His thoughts like a hundred moths
Trapped in a lampshade
Somewhere within

Their wings banging and burning
On through endless nights
Forever awake he lies shaking and starving
Praying for someone to turn off the light

Born of a broken man, never a broken man
Born of a broken man, but not a broken man
Born of a broken man, never a broken man
Born of a broken man, but not a broken man

My fears hunt me down
Capturing my memories
The frontier of loss
They try to escape across

The street where
Jesus stripped bare
And raped the spirit he was supposed to nurture
In the name of my, in the name of my

Born of a broken man, but not a broken man
Born of a broken man, never a broken man
Born of a broken man, but not a broken man
Born of a broken man, never a broken man

Come on
