Alter Bridge – Words Darker Than Their Wings lyrics

They say you are right
I hope that I'm wrong
I know that you tried
But still it is gone

Just don't you lose hope
I swear I'd never dream that we're alone
But don't you let go
I swear I still believe though I don't know

Remember the years
I still walk tall
I only fear
Now I only crawl

How could I be wrong?
I hope there comes a day your fear is gone
How could we be lost?
Lost just cease to be not carry on

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone

You can love some God
Go never to ask why
Or to fear again
Go find your peace tonight
Go set out towards the Sun
Let the view begin
Go soon your day will come
Day will come

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone

    From my point of view, myles and mark are having a chat about hope and belief in the first verse.
    In the second verse I think myles is clearly stating that you just have to live your life, if there is a god or not.
    The light in this song is somewhat your own opinion about god, for you'll fall, follow and know your own belief, whether it's right or wrong; the only truth that you create.

    Myles said in an interview that the entire album is to do with a person who is having trouble with their faith so this song is probably showing how this person still has doubts despite having an entire album written about them. Although it could be seen as how modern day society battles with itself over whether there is a god or we just die and then there is nothing so there isn't much point living in the first place.

    My thoughts about the meaning of Words Darker Than Their Wings are. It's a conversation on faith vs doubt. Myles is a hopeless man in this song. And Mark is the one who believes, even though he has doubt himself. But the moral is to keep faith, even though everything seems dark and lost in faith and that the light is still upon us, that we can still follow it and begin the new after darkness. So, Words Darker Than Their Wings is like a conversation of the bright and the dark. And in the end it's like they both just believe in the light and truth alone it's amazing! It makes sense, perfectly. And I also think that the lyrics "Into the light may you fall... follow... know truth alone" is almost a call-out to those who accept blind faith (a. K. A. Believing without seeing). The "truth alone" part, to me, seems to be Myles's hope that--regardless of how we get there--we can all eventually stumble across our own truth rather than simply believing everything we're told without further investigation.
