International Anthem

Come now, my friend, don’t be shy,

Come now, my friend, don’t be shy, grab my calloused hand, look to my stormy eyes

Come now, my friend, don’t be shy, grab my calloused hand, look to my stormy eyes don’t be afraid to take a stand, this thing we can’t outrun:

Come now, my friend, don’t be shy, grab my calloused hand, look to my stormy eyes don’t be afraid to take a stand, this thing we can’t outrun: Ourselves.

Come now, my friend, don’t be shy, grab my calloused hand, look to my stormy eyes don’t be afraid to take a stand, this thing we can’t outrun: Ourselves. So sing along to the song of the Broken Ones.

Can’t afford to exclude, no one wants to intrude,

Can’t afford to exclude, no one wants to intrude, we’re all alone, only flesh and bone,

Can’t afford to exclude, no one wants to intrude, we’re all alone, only flesh and bone, painfully human

Can’t afford to exclude, no one wants to intrude, we’re all alone, only flesh and bone, painfully human Humming along to the song of the Broken Ones.

We sing the pain that we have felt,

We sing the pain that we have felt, trauma-stained thoughts as we belt

We sing the pain that we have felt, trauma-stained thoughts as we belt The only thing we know and then we’re done

We sing the pain that we have felt, trauma-stained thoughts as we belt The only thing we know and then we’re done as we sing the song of the Broken Ones.

Not holding back, we’ve accepted rejection.

Not holding back, we’ve accepted rejection. We’re good on our own, it’s all that we know.

Not holding back, we’ve accepted rejection. We’re good on our own, it’s all that we know. Don’t need your protection, take your pity and go,

Not holding back, we’ve accepted rejection. We’re good on our own, it’s all that we know. Don’t need your protection, take your pity and go, there’s no real connection, they can’t see through our shattered glass,

Not holding back, we’ve accepted rejection. We’re good on our own, it’s all that we know. Don’t need your protection, take your pity and go, there’s no real connection, they can’t see through our shattered glass, reflection warped, just like us,

they can’t make out our song, the song of the Broken Ones.

A troop of ragged rough, cynical scarred wanderers,

A troop of ragged rough, cynical scarred wanderers, Are we found, or lost together?

A troop of ragged rough, cynical scarred wanderers, Are we found, or lost together? We bring our own condemnation,

A troop of ragged rough, cynical scarred wanderers, Are we found, or lost together? We bring our own condemnation, this dark, punishing nether,

A troop of ragged rough, cynical scarred wanderers, Are we found, or lost together? We bring our own condemnation, this dark, punishing nether, by singing the song of the Broken Ones.

We think we’re alone, But that’s where we’re wrong

We think we’re alone, But that’s where we’re wrong ‘cause when we sing our song,

We think we’re alone, But that’s where we’re wrong ‘cause when we sing our song, the Broken World hums along.
