"October Skies" as written by William Zachary Neal Davis, Brett M Jones, Jason Pavilanis and Adam Reiter....
Autumn brings a song I sing so desperately
These shattered dreams
From broken wings of love
October skies and city lights were all a blur
And high tide came washing them away
I said

Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, this is for real

Church bells ring
The North Star seems so far from me
The costal plane's is where my shame shall lay
Autumn trees they shed their leaves
To live again
The cold air brings clarity to me...yeah
I said

Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, this is for real
Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, to your love

I, I've been running to nowhere
And I, I feel something's getting clear oohhh
I said
Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, this is for real
Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, to your love

Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, this is for real
Alright, alright, alright
You make the calls tonight
I surrender, to your love

    General CommentI saw Waking Ashland in concert before I even heard most of their songs and I remember this one because right before they played it Jonathan announced that he was going to play "October Skies" next. I love it when he says "surrender."

    General Commentit's autumn, and all the plans he's made have fallen through and he's gotten out of a relationship. i think he's talking to god and saying that he gets to do his work through him and that's the truth. the line "the north star seems so far from me" is suggesting that he has no direction but even in the midst of hardships, it is autmn, and even though it seems like everything is horrible right NOW. the leaves are falling off trees...it doesnt mean he won't live again. (leaves coming back for the spring) but...he surrenders all of his current situation to God and his love to help him through it.

    that's just my two cents.
