Music Monday: I’m Broken by Pantera.


Welcome once again to Music Monday where I offer you all a song that I really like. If anyone wants to join in then please feel free to have a go! 🙂

Pantera: I’m Broken.

I wonder if we’ll smile in our coffins
While loved ones mourn the day,
The absence of our faces,
Living, laughing, eyes awake
Is this too much for them to take?

Too young for one’s conclusion, the lifestyle won
Such values you taught your son
That’s how

Look at me now
I’m broken
Inherit my life

One day we all will die, a cliched fact of life
Force fed to make us heed
Inbred to sponge our bleed
Every warning, a leaking rubber,
A poison apple for mingled blood

Too young for one’s delusion the lifestyle cost
Venereal Mother embrace the loss
That’s how

Look at you now
You’re broken
Inherit your life

Songwriters: Darrell Lance Abbott / Philip Anselmo / Philip Hansen Anselmo / Rex Brown / Rex Robert Brown / Vincent Paul Abbott

  1. Pantera and me go way back. In fact, one day I literally sat crying, strumming my Dime bolt guitar, thinking about what happened to Dimebag and his sad tragedy, being shot by a disgruntled fan, then I used my sorrow for inspiration, because that’s what artists do.

    I really appreciate this post. Dimebag goes down in history not only as a co-inventor of Southern Groove-metal, but as one of the greatest guitarists. He was buried with a gift from Eddie Van Halen, what he told Eddie was his favorite guitar. Eddie put it in his casket. 😢

    Vinnie and Dime really had the best synergy. I think there was some talk at one point about Dime going to another band, then he told them if my brother can’t go with me, I’m not going! or something like that. Cheers.
