"Lead Us" as written by William David South, Brendon Arthur James, Thomas William George Welham and Adam Michael Wilson....
Once again stripping
'Cause the heat walkin' on my feet
Makes me tired and my own cause is too great
When I steal it for myself

And that's what brings me nearer to the rest
At my best, it's the most I can do
Shiftin' my dream for one chance to breathe
And the blue in my eyes fades out

Gold and silver
And diamonds in your eyes
I can't see them if the long awaited stays
What a great game, I found it in my grave

I'm not supposed to die
I'm not supposed to be here
I'm driven on by leaders
So lead us

And that's what brings me nearer to the rest
At my best, it's the most I can do
Shiftin' my dream for one chance to breathe
And the blue in my eyes fades out

That's what brings me nearer to the rest
At my best, it's the most I can do
Shiftin' my dream for one chance to breathe
And the blue in my eyes fades out

    General CommentI think he is saying that he has been lead by leaders that have merely led him astray, almost to deaths point.

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on the album. The piano bit after the first chorus and towards the end are amazing.
    Not too sure what it means though. About lack of confidence maybe?

    General CommentProbably my favourite song off 'The Invitation' album. The lyrics are quite depressing, but I am quite intrigued by the line:
    "what a great game, I found it in my grave'- what does it mean?
    Yeah, as snowiersmack says, I think the song may be about lack of confidence and maybe how we follow/rely on others when we have no direction in our lives? x
