"Speeding Up the Octaves" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
Just light the match and run
Run from all those times
She poured gasoline, and by fires light she cried
She cried all night, until the salt from her tears
Rusted shut her eyes, she should have shut her eyes

Turn off the lights,
Blow out the candles tonight
Romance this chance to set angels to flight

Before they die
I'll take this ink from my arms and write your name in the sky
Please don't use my letters to start your fires this time
Your fire this time

Please drive faster, faster than the light
Erase her embrace, erase it from your mind let this die

I'll take this ink from my arms and write your name in the sky
Please don't use my letters to start your fires this time
Your fire this time

Remember oceans like times together
Across these oceans
I sent my letters, I sent these letters to you
Remember oceans and time together in my mind
Remember starting your fires off my eyes
Remember these oceans
Like fires off your eyes

    General CommentTo me, this song is about moving on. He wants to move on and leave her as a memory and she can't accept that. To me, the fires respresent her anger and can be rumors that she has spread to try and get even. And the end is just a way of saying, "We had some good times and let those memories stay with you forever."
