Broken Wings

Album: Built by Blood (2005)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song is about drummer Scott Gottlieb, who died of leukemia in 2005. The band wrote the song when Gottlieb was in the hospital trying to fight it. They never expected something like this to happen to anyone so young. At the 2005 Warped Tour, after he died, they gave a speech about how not to take life for granted. >>
