Broken Halo Winnipeg, Manitoba

The band has played alongside Sum 41, Evanescence, ZZ Top, Pilate, The Trews, The Tea Party, Hawksley Workman and more. The band’s strength lies in their creative writing, masterful blues and funk influenced guitar work, strong vocals and tight rhythm section. ... more

Track Name: Have You Ever?
well I grew up moving round the southwest
yeah I came up from an orange grove
and I never really knew my father
before his life came to a close
so I gave in to the music
mastered six strings silently
then emerged in new york city
for my cafe days to begin

but have you ever
known me to be wrong?

then from sin-e to the world's stage
ends of the earth and back again
landed on that big bad delta
for the next sound to begin
so I called up my friend Tom
sketched out sweethearts for a drunk
with my four-track by my side
demon john and a big ol' trunk

I went down to the muddy river
waded into the stronger tides
and when you turned your back on me
I lifted up into the memphis sky
Now I sing to eternal angels
Yes I sing to my lasting grace
and now I finally know my father
when I look him in the face
Track Name: Rooftops
We know it's never quite contrary
To what you had planned already
Like something's creeping up from the behind
While nothing ever comes out right,
I know that you're coming home tonight
When all this dust settles from this fight

Yeah, you can scream it from the rooftops
You can scream until your lungs burst
I don't mind
Yeah, you can scream it from the rooftops
And you can tear my fucking heart out
I'll be fine

So you'll be searching far and wide
Contemplating all your lies
While I'm here crumbling down from the inside
While nothing ever comes to mind
When looking in your arid eyes
And thinking why I'm staying on your side

Yeah, you can scream it to me
And you can tear into me,
I don't mind
Track Name: Stars Align
I could stand here and listen to this all day
Trying to discern the difference between what you do and say
but it never seems to come out clear
knowing everything that you've done wrong is still ringing in my ears

oh, but doesn't it seem so real
when we collide, the stars align tonight

so take me up and let's get lost
in the dust of a galaxy where we'll escape this frost
Track Name: Control
we've already said all we need to say
we've already had it out
so take those petty words and pack them all away
cause we've already had it out

if there's a little heart beating in your chest
then you'll know to let it go
if there's a little voice screaming from inside
then you'll never lose control

we've already had all the little fights
from thirty years but over five
so take those petty words and pack them all away
cause we've already had enough
Track Name: Bad Situation
your timing is so bad and you never could connect the pieces to this puzzle that you call your sorry life

so mad when there's no time to make it
the way you wanted to
you're suckered in to a bad situaion
and you'll crash and you'll burn

you're wasted again and you neglect everything
that you know that you should do
you throw your life away

no time to fuck about
lie around or wallow in your self depreciation
for everything that you say and do
so why do I let you get so low?
Track Name: Rooftops (Radio Edit)
We know it's never quite contrary
To what you had planned already
Like something's creeping up from the behind
While nothing ever comes out right,
I know that you're coming home tonight
When all this dust settles from this fight

Yeah, you can scream it from the rooftops
You can scream until your lungs burst
I don't mind
Yeah, you can scream it from the rooftops
And you can come and tear my heart out
I'll be fine

So you'll be searching far and wide
Contemplating all your lies
While I'm here crumbling down from the inside
While nothing ever comes to mind
When looking in your arid eyes
And thinking why I'm staying on your side

Yeah, you can scream it to me
And you can tear into me,
I don't mind
