Everything we do in life makes us who we are.

Life
We all start out whole 
But somewhere along the line things start to go wrong. 
Pieces begin to slide  
Pieces that we can’t put back. 
and then all of a sudden, we're all broken 
Trying to fix the things we did. 
But the pieces only slide one way. 
And for the rest of our lives, we have to look at ourselves, 
Without the pieces in the right spot. 
knowing we can’t go back. 
we can only move forward.
learn from our mistakes and try to make the broken pieces blend again. 
you'll go day to day Knowing you won't be whole again 
You'll try to understand why you're broken 
And then eventually you'll learn that sometimes broken is not bad.
Sometimes broken is better than being whole. 
Means you've lived more, learned more, Loved more. 
Sometimes being whole you don’t get the full story. 
You don’t know why things are the way they are; 
Why kids are being beaten and starved
Why poverty is killing thousands 
And why the world faces the problems it does
If you don’t know that things are broken 
Then you can’t fix it 
you can’t change the world 
you can’t change yourself
and to live you have to change
You have to fight to breath 
and you have to love to feel the passion
and you have to hate to feel rage
And in the end, you have to break to blend. 
Because you'll never survive in the real world -  
if you’re as whole as you started.
