As I stare into these ruins made by man
I tremble as I realize it's the end
More and more I wonder what we could have done
But instead we wage a war that can't be won
Yeah instead we wage a war that can't be won

I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
Memories of a broken heart
Now I'm alone in the dark.

I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
Find your light in a new dawn
But there's no way to do this on our own

I search for solace in this waste
That I once called home
But my attempts of piecing life together leaves me alone
I can't repair what's been done
When the sky is as black as the ground that I walk on

But I can't give up on this
I have to wonder what we could have done
I have to wonder
But instead we wage a war that can't be won

I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
Memories of a broken heart
Now I'm alone in the dark.

I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
Find your light in a new dawn
But there's no way to do this on our own.

You think that this is the end?
You're wrong
This is the start of a new generation

I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
Memories of a broken heart
Now I'm alone in the dark

I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
Find your light in a new dawn
But there's no way to do this on our own.

    My InterpretationIt seems pretty clear that it's about a break up. He clearly loved her, and he is finding this break up extremely difficult.
    "But instead we wage a war that can't be won" - This suggests they tried to fix their relationship, but it was already gone.
    "But my attempts of piecing life together leaves me alone" - This suggests that after trying to fix the relationship, it just made him feel a whole lot worse.
    "I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved" - This is him over thinking about the past, i.e. their relationship.
