Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light in our souls

Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
Things we hold are always first to go
And who's to say we won't end up alone?

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning by the fires of the Sun
On skinned knees I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've gotta find that meaning
And I'll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down in the same place with all I love
Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give will always carry you
And who's to say we won't survive it too?

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning by the fires of the Sun
On skinned knees I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've gotta find that meaning
And I'll search for so long

Set-a-free all
Relying on their will to make me all that I am
And all I'll be
Set-a-free all
Will fall between the cracks with memories of all that I am
All I'll be

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning by the fires of the Sun
On skinned knees I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've gotta find that meaning
And I'll search for so long

    I think this song is about struggles in life, and overcoming them, and when it says "i've got to find that meaning and i'll search for so long" it means finding the meaning to your life and your purpose here.

    Base on my point of view 'broken wings' is a reflected from a action that has done by someone however the action was unrealized..
