When I'm Broken (See What Happens)   Run Time: 3:59

Written by Bill Mallonee for Fingerprint Records and CyBrenJoJosh (BMI) ©1996

left your bags in the hall your harsh light ghost
came in full needing the most
after withdrawing all your savings

you were playing a game where there were no winners
your credit is bad and nobody's lending
this time the rules they are not bending

when i'm broken see what happens
arms wide open see what happens
when i'm broken see what happens
see what happens to me

should've known better coming 'round with your needs
your mouth full of roses heart on your sleeve
only love just begging to stay

you're bring in nothing and it's all that you got
you're rest assured it's more than enough
only love just having the last say

gotta stay clear of the star-on machine
venom and bile a venting one's spleen
oh yeah you know what i mean

throw us all in a van and see if we care
a little beat up worse for the wear
oh yeah see how we tear

Did You Know?

"When I'm Broken" entered the top ten in the modern rock charts. It went to number one on the CCM rock charts in February of 1997. Bill's reference to the "star-on machine" is a reference to Sylvester McMonkey McBean's Star-On Machine in Dr. Seuss's The Sneetches.
