!Broken, music video version

You're not broken!
Even when you feel
The wounds; raw, open.

A fountain,
Blurred by subway motion,
Is just as real as the yonder mountain.

You can’t see, but
It’s the lens of this world
That’s cracked and frozen!

Fogged in the dew
Of dogged 'ol notions,
Timeless warps, mindless motions.

It’s tough to see
Your beauty, when
Mirrors are mere tokens!

You’re not broken.
You’re just detached,
From the world’s corrosion.
