Track By Tracks: BornBroken - The Years of Harsh Truths and Little Lies (2018)


That album as a whole is really a 40 minute freight train with few breaks between songs, in some ways it represents the way life is lead nowadays.

1. Empty Souls:

"Repent you sinner or get what you deserve." The opening track is meant to set the pace for the new direction of BornBroken; Aggressive, fast and to the point.  Lyrically, the song is about the religious sector and the way they prey on weak minded making them feel they owe something to the church.  It's a form of submissive mind control.

2. The Years of Harsh Truths and Little Lies…:

"This is a world of lies" The title track to this release. We live in a time where reality is now a station on the internet and controlled by a select few in the 1%.  It's sad to say that we live in time where people are afraid to stand up and speak for themselves and most do not really care.  If we soon do not open up our eyes and see what is really happening around us, the world will turn around and bite back and we will not be prepared for it.

3. Torn:

"Innocence is dying and suffering is the cure" With a more nu-metal groove feel we wanted to bring back some of the sounds we liked from our youth. This song is about the politicians trying to think for us, and doing it all wrong. I don't get how elective officials get away with the stuff they do, especially now with all the media coverage!!! AHH wait they control the media. We have to find a way to take control back and make it fair again for the poor and middle class. I'm tired of being torn and caught in the crossfire.

4. The Only One:

"Am I the only one who feels the burn" With a couple of the members having gone thorough recovery programs we thought it only fitting to write a song about the way we felt while going through it. We felt alone and misunderstood. It’s funny how people look at you as though you can just stop an addiction like turning off a light. It’s a daily struggle every day, not only physically but mentally also, which sometimes is the harder part to overcome. Musically, we went with one of the songs we wrote with breakdowns and erratic sounds to represent the feeling of withdrawal.

5. Whitewashed:

"2 words that we live by; Truth and Respect" This song is straight from the streets hardcore groove. Lyrically, this song stands for making it known that we will not bite our tongues anymore, it’s time for us to stand up and speak the truth. This though does not mean we have to do it a violent way, there are ways to get your point across without starting a riot.

6. No Stranger to Failure:

"I am hope, I am failure." This is one of the heaviest tracks on the CD with its fast double bass and old school thrash riffs. We all fail and from that failure we learn acceptance and gain wisdom, which in turn brings hope for the next stage of our lives. I cannot count the times I have failed and gotten back up to face the grind once again. I welcome failure with open arms as without it, I cannot fully appreciate the final goal, being happy with whom I am.

7. Fight (Featuring Jason Rockman (Slaves On Dope))

"No suit and tie guy will push us around” Straight up no bullshit Stomp-a-thon! There is nothing wrong with being yourself and no one has the right to think they are better then you. Stand by the words that you speak and be true to the person you are. It takes more than one type of person to make the world go round.

8. Live or Die:

"Time to wake up and expose the corrupt" When I wrote this riff, it reminded of riffs I used to write in the 90's, it has the thrash feel.  The lyrics are basically stating, stop bitching about it and do something with your life. I hear more people constantly complaining how they have it bad… wow look where you live, I think we got it pretty fucking good, except for the fact that our government is corrupt. lol

9. Father Death:         

"The final curtain call is up" I had this really dark acoustic part that always made me feel sad and that there was no hope so I decided to write this song, which leads you a on journey through one person's bout with suicide and final ending of their life. We have had many friends around us over the years turn to this way to leave the world, leaving family and friends a void where they should be. There is help for them and most of us do not see the signs before it is too late. This song is a dedication to those people.

10. Listen:

"This is my life" We chose this song to close the album as it grabs you and doesn't let go till the last note. We end on a note that no one will take what we have done away from us, we have accomplished what we set out to do.  In the end, it doesn't matter what anybody says, THIS IS OUR LIFE, our music and if you don't like it, well… don't listen.
