In cart Not available Out of stock

“Broken Trust” is some of the best new music, written by The Wentzel Brothers Band, that talks about the family members and good friends that find ways to take advantage of one’s kindness. This song is track 7 off of the album In the Shadow of the Mountain and has a distinct sound from the rest of the album. It draws strongly from americana rock influences and can be seen as a contrast to the heavier style of the rest of the album.

Lyrics

“Broken Trust”
When you're feeling down
Tired of running around
When there's nothing left
Don't turn to theft
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
Well you come around here looking to lay down your head
And a few good people feed you and give you a bed
But you keep on messing around the way you always do
Scavenging people’s lives ‘cause it benefits you
When you're feeling down
Tired of running around
When there's nothing left
Don't turn to theft
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
An honest humble man offers you work
And then you go off and treat him like some kinda jerk
Just because he has worked for the things you lack
You wouldn't hesitate to stab him in the back
When you're feeling down
Tired of running around
When there's nothing left
Don't turn to theft
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
A man with sticky fingers and a shallow heart
Will end up wishing he could take back from the start
The guilt he feels will keep him from his friends
Even when they forgive, forget, and defend
Alright
When you're feeling down
Tired of running around
When there's nothing left
Don't turn to theft
Or in guilt you'll surely drown
In the end you'll surely drown
