Broken Lyrics

Distant stars
Come in black or red
I've seen their worlds
Inside my head

They connect
With the fall of man
They breathe you in
And dive as deep as they can

There's nothing you can do for them
They are the force between

    It's pretty simple; the love is broken.
    It hasn't disappeared, not yet anyway, but it's definitely broken.

    Something that once blossomed and grew, has now been kicked and spat on.
    Beat up a few times.

    It's a bit hopeless, trying to fix it.
    You know you should just leave it be, go find a new kind, but you can't. The love is still THERE.
    It's bashed and bruised and bleeding, but it is still there!
    And the thought of leaving it is dreadful.
    But sticking by it is driving you crazy.
    You're conflicted. Angry. Sad. Troubled.
    It's Broken, and it seems as if you can't fix it.
    But it's still there, and you can't bear to truly leave it...

    Really, I'm pretty sure it's about Noodle or it might just be about love? Or that he loves noodle? MMMM, see it sorta makes sense. Broken is about losing someone, like how 2-D didn't get to see noodle for awhile. I don't know if Murdoc or 2-D Wrote the song so idk.

    In my opinion this song is an analogy for losing someone your'e romantically involved with. The pain is like a star going super nova, but you knew it was unavoidable. Can't stop a star from exploding. Love ends just like stars just like humanity will end someday. Then there are the awkward meetings after the break up and the trouble sleeping always wondering how it could have been adverted. The loneliness soothed by a tv on all night. No conclusions. Just keep living.

    I agree with noodle doodle and I think it isn't love but it's the trust between nature and man. It's man that makes the plastic pollution and loses the trust of all beings because it kills many of them.

    he is saying the love between the singer(Damon albarns) is broken.And he wants it to get fixed,so he's saying is it far away in the glitter freeze or in our eyes every time they meet. There he means is our love far or near.hope dat helped!
