Now is the climax to the story
that gives the demons and angels purpose
They fly around while we are walking
and warms our emotions just to please them

I am cold, can you hear
I will fly with no hope no fear
And the ground taunts my wings
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I...sing

All we are is an isle of flightless birds
we find our worth in giving birth and stuff
We're finding our homes again winding roads
and we think the going is tough
We pick songs to sing, remind us of things
that nobody cares about
And honestly we're probably
more suicidal than ever now
If you decide to live by
what you think's wrong and what's right
Believe me you'll begin to wish you were sleeping
your weeping will creep in your head and you'll cry
But if we wake up every morning
and decide what we believe
we can take apart our very heart
and the life will set us free

I am cold, can you hear
I will fly with no hope no fear
And the ground taunts my wings
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I...

I am cold, can you hear
I will fly with no hope no fear
And the ground taunts my wings
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I...

How frustrating and so degrading
His time we're wasting as time will fly by
and the sky will cry as light is fading
And He is waiting oh, so patiently
while we repeat the same routine
as we will please comfort civility
And please don't think about
why you can't sleep in the evening
And please don't be afraid of
what your soul is really thinking
Your soul knows good and evil
Your soul knows both sides
And it's time you pick your battle
And I promise you this is mine
(I promise)

    General CommentIn this song, Tyler is crying out for help, because he has these wings, but they have no purpose because he can't fly. What that is really saying is that, he realizes that he has talents blessed to him by God, that aren't being used worthwhile, because he isn't using them for God.

    Tyler then realizes that all that he and humanity are doing on their own is useless, and making their depression worse. Relying on yourself instead of God, and living by what YOU think is wrong and right, will ultimately ruin you. Then he goes on to say; "If we wake up every morning, and decide what we believe, we can take apart our very heart and the life will set us free." I believe this is saying that, if we take the time to deeply consider who or what we believe in, then we will have new life under be it Jesus or whatever you find to be the truth.

    Tyler then goes on to talk about the grace of God, because here on Earth, we are caught up in our own selves, wasting his time and ignoring what his will for us is. But he is waiting patiently, for us to realize that we can't and aren't doing this on our own. While we're down here, doing the same daily routine. Tyler then encourages you to not be afraid and push away Jesus knocking at your soul, wanting to enter in and give you new life. Because it's time you find your purpose, and he promises you that this is his.

    These are all my opinions, feel free to read into the lyrics and come by your own meaning. Because Tyler's songs can interpreted in so many different ways.
