Broken Pieces

by: Apocalyptica ft. Lacey Sturm (formerly of Flyleaf)

Too late – this is not the answer
I need to pack it in
I can’t pull your heart together with just my voice alone
One thousand shards of glass I came to meet you in
You cut the peace out of me

And as you ripped it all apart,
That’s when I turned to watch you
And as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn to shadow
If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love
But I’m losing this
And I’m losing you

Oh I’ve gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I’ve gotta save my blood
From all that you’ve broken
And pack up these pieces of me

It’s too late now to stop the process
This was your choice – you let it in
This double life you lead is eating you up from within
A thousand shards of glass you pushed beneath my skin
And left me lying there to bleed

And as you showed me your scars
I only held you closer
But as the light in you went dark I saw you turn over
I wanted always to be there for you and close to you
But I’m losing this
And I’m losing you

Oh I’ve gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I’ve gotta save my blood
From all that you’ve broken
And pack up these pieces of me

The broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me
The broken pieces
Pack up these pieces

Maybe without me
You’ll return to all the beauty I once knew
But if I stay I know,
We will both be drowned by you holding onto me

Oh I’ve gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I’ve gotta save my blood
From all that you’ve broken
And pack up these pieces of me

The broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me
The broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me

I apologize for the poor quality of this video, it was the only full-length one I could find on YouTube.

I do not own any rights to this song, video or lyrics. All rights remain with the artists and their respective agents. No copyright infringement intended.

This is actually the last of a set of 3 videos meant to be watched in order, but it’s my favorite. If you’d like to watch them in order, #1 is “End of Me” ft. Gavin Rossdale (Bush), and #2 is “Strong Enough” ft. Brent Smith (Shinedown).

Apocalyptica is classified as a “Cello Metal” band, hailing from Helsinki, Finland. Up until 2014 they didn’t have a vocalist, rather they used their classically trained cellist skills and love for heavy metal to create a ‘neoclassical metal’ sound, while teaming up with some of rock’s most beloved singers for their songs. They are extremely popular and have sold over 4 million albums since their start in 1993.

Their chart-topping songs here in the U.S. include “I Don’t Care” ft. Adam Gontier, formally of Three Days Grace, and “I’m Not Jesus” ft. Corey Taylor of Slipknot. They’ve also performed with the famous Berlin band, Rammstein. (Go ahead and sing Du hast, you know you wanna…) 😉

  1. Thank you for this! I know Apocalyptica of course, but I’d lost track of what they’re doing now. I liked their first album “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos”. Then again I was also a huge Metallica fan back then, so it fitted my music sphere. 🙂
