"Shattered" as written by and David M Martijn Westerholt....
Engaged in a memory
Engaged in a prison of guilt
Surrounded by reproach
And everybody knows

[Chorus:]
She flies over town in white shades
But you're left behind
With a thousand troubled minds
You cannot speak; you're blinded by your grief
She flies over town in white shades
And guides every step
But still you feel alone
Cause angels don't come home

As the sky is clearing
You clear your mind
Hide all mirrors not to see
What the morphine couldn't hide

Shattered faces on the floor
Your broken mask serves you no more

[Chorus:]
She flies over town in white shades
But you're left behind
With a thousand troubled minds
You cannot speak; you're blinded by your grief
She flies over town in white shades
And guides every step
But still you feel alone
Cause angels don't come home

[Chorus:]
She flies over town in white shades
But you're left behind
With a thousand troubled minds
You cannot speak; you're blinded by your grief
She flies over town in white shades
And guides every step
But still you feel alone
Cause angels don't come home

    General CommentQuick note that the first verse is: "Encaged in a memory/Encaged in a prison of guilt/Surrounded by reproach/And everybody knows"

    I think that this song is about losing someone and losing it -- the facade of being okay is shattered, hence the line "Your broken mask serves you no more".
    I'm not sure about the whole angel bit, but it seems like the angel (possibly a term of endearment) has left and the person left behind feels shattered.
