Pieces of What Lyrics

When the world has turned
Paralyzed and wrong
Cold blooded claws
Never offered anything at all
Past the point of love
Shattered and untied
Waiting to pick up the pieces
That make it all alright

But pieces of what
Pieces of what

    When things go wrong. people freak out. and the nicest person in the world could turn into something evil. the rules you learned in kindergarten : sharing is caring becomes every man for himself. While you hope that everything will be better but in your head you know that whats done is done and cant be undone. so hope for the best but expect the worst. cuz even if everything has gone wrong there is still pieces of what once was. such as your memories. youll have those forever.

    It might be about looking back on the past or childhood. Thinking about your old way of life or people that aren't in your life anymore. Or it could be looking at the aftermath of a destructive event and realizing there isn't much left of your old life.

    Its all about life getting you down, the assumption of life getting you down is a tough one, this song shows you that things can change in an instant and life can go from perfect to tragic in a heartbeat and therefore the pieces of what becomes the pieces of a shattered life slowly putting it back together
