"Broken Wings" as written by Randy Keith Thomas and James Daniel Breedwell....
In a dream I spent the day with you
In a carriage bought by blood.
The clouds were singing songs of fear and loss;
And they cut me down to size.
And they cut me down to size.

Broken wings
Have a home tonight.
No one is listening, no one is listening.
When darkness fell on the streets last night,
We never expected, we never expected this.

In a perfect world, I'd never know your name,
And do we even know it when we die?
Or will death just pass us by?
Will death just pass us by?
Please just pass us by.

Broken wings
Have a home tonight.
No one is listening, no one is listening.
When darkness fell on the streets last night,
We never expected, we never expected this.

When all this pain is justified,
While all the time is passing by.
Now is when we clench our fists
Knowing we can fight through this.
The hours and days are gone.
The weeks and months are moving on.
Can't they see that's nothing gonna stop us now?

Broken wings
Have a home tonight.
No one is listening, no one is listening.
When darkness fell on the streets last night,
we never expected, we never expected this.

    General CommentYes, It's about the drummer Scott...
    He died April 10th...The band will still carry on however. It's so sad...makes me extremely sad listening to the song now. It's beautiful. RIP Scott.

    General Commentjeez this is song is amazing. sad yes . but dear god i love it.
    written about scott obviosly.
    "In a perfect world, I’d never know your name" i also thought that line meant like...in a perfect world he wouldn't have known him, he would have just been a stranger, and he woulnd't have to go through all this, but instead because like brothers and has to deal with his sickness..and death eventually

    General CommentI saw Bleed the Dream last week at the Warped tour and earlier in march while they were on Taste of Chaos. Both times I have heard them play this song live they put so much energy and emotion into it. Even though their crowd was fairly small at Warped they got everyone that knew the words singing along. I don't think I really have a point... but whatever
