Brighter Things

so I stand here still
broken by their will
one word, all I've known
find me, bring me home

airships set me free
forced me to my knees
chained me to my dream
burned it to a scream
but I know she's gone & I lost the way
& I know there's no one else that I can blame
so I watch my eyes & I rue the day
when the enemy's face came to look the same

(chorus)
no borders here on the sea of skies
so what's holding me beneath?
but if you ask how far I'd fly
I'd say as far as the light can reach
I'm stumbling through the realms of space
wishing I could find my wings
no future here in this darkened place
I'm bound for brighter things

scared to crack & bleed
gave them what they need
no one has to know
if you wish it so
cause I've prayed for her every waking night
in the sight of a god that only I could see
now I watch the skies & I wonder why
nobody's noticed that they're dark because of me

(chorus)

so I stand here still
broken by their will
no one has to know
if you wish it so

come home
come home

This was actually written about a friend's character in a roleplaying game.
Actually I think you should interpret it whatever way you want.
