Julien: "In Sept 2006, I found out that my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 colon and liver cancer. They originally had given her 2 to 3 months to live at that point. I was...
Walking a fine line between wrong and right
And I know
There is a part of me that I try to hide
But I can't win
And I can't fight
I keep holding on too tight
Running away from the world outside

[Chorus: ]
Now I am calling
Hoping you'll hear me
We all need somebody
To believe in something
And I won't fear this
When I am falling
We all need somebody
That can mend these broken bones

Caught in the confines of the simple life
And I am
Holding my head high in the rising tide
And I can't win
And I can't fight
I keep holding on too tight
Running away from the world outside

[Chorus: ]

But oh
Yeah

I'm not coming home now
I know
I'm so far away
So far from home
I'm not coming home now
I know
I'm so far away
I'm so far away

And I can't win
And I can't fight
I keep holding on too tight

[Chorus: ]

[Repeat 2X]
And I can't win
And I can't fight
I keep holding on too tight
Running away from the world outside

    General CommentI think this song is related to drug addiction.
    Reasons why:
    1. The song is used in the tv drama Cleaner, which is addiction related
    2. "But I can't win And I can't fight I keep holding on too tight" is a reference to how a drug addict cannot overcome the drug and has to rely more on the drug
    3. "I'm not coming home now I know... I'm so far away So far from home" - reference to how drug addicts take a long course of medical help to overcome the drug in order to go back home and have a normal life
    4. "That can mend... These broken bones" - reference to the need of assistance going through the procedure of breaking away from the addiction

    It's a suggestion

    General CommentI read that a band member wrote this song for his mother who died from cancer. But it could also be about someone who has always been there for you and they always mend your "broken bones." The song reminds me of my mom because she raised me and my sister by herself. Then she met her current boyfreind and he treats me like dirt but she always reassures me that we won't be with him too much longer thus mending my "broken bones"
