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
The things we hold are always first to go
And who’s to say we won’t end up alone

Chorus:
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 got to find that meaning
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
The things we hold are always first to go
And who’s to say we won’t end up alone

(Chorus)
