Lyrics and explanations


Meds 2006 - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo

Broken Promise

We'll rise above this, we'll cry about this
As we live and learn
A broken promise - I was not honest
Now I watch as tables turn
(and you're singing)

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you-
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn, I'll wait my turn

I'll cry about this and hide my cuckold eyes
As you come off all concerned
I'll find no solace in your poor apology
In your regret that sounds absurd
(keep singing)

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you-
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn to terrorize you-
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn, I'll wait my turn

A promise is a promise
A promise is a promise

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you-
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn, I'll wait my turn

A broken promise
You were not honest
I'll bide my time, I'll wait my turn
Press Quotes

(Translation, quote in French here)

"We liked the idea to make sing this song that speaks of adultery by 2 men - me and Michael Stipe in this case - ... The result is halfway between Metallica and Erik Satie. (Laughs) That's fucking strange! It starts with a piano, like Satie, played by Stefan, and then the loud guitars, then Satie, then the guitars, it's crazy!"

Brian Molko, Rock Mag April 2006



"That's a song about adultery and was written as a duet with a female voice in mind. Then we bumped in REM in Paris and the lightbulb went off."

Brian Molko, The Sun, June 2006



Radio interview XFM
‘Broken Promise’
“Written completely whilst on the road and is about adultery.” 


Brian Molko, XFM, March 2006



MS : Having Michael Stipe guest on the album is a big deal. How did it come about?

SH : Well we worked with him on the movie Velvet Goldmine, which he produced. So we're good friends. We were in a hotel in Paris and we just written "Broken Promise". We were debating whether to make it another duet with a woman and Stipey walked in. I said, "There you go." We made it into a song about adultery between two men. Very simple.
