"Fireflies" as written by Marc Edwin Allen, Nathan Barcalow, Derek Doherty, Alejandro M. Linares and Randy Strohmeyer....
Communications down
I float without
A light to lead me back
I'm lost again
They say silence is golden
Loneliness never shined like this
Diseased the leper sits
The leper is me

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

Caught between the stars
A well lit drowning
Darkness mocks me with
A broken compass
So I swim in a sea
Of distress
Broken down, and helpless
The leper sits diseased
The leper is me

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

Floating all alone
Floating all alone

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

    General Commentthis song is apparently about being lost, (fallen away from friends/faith/love etc) and needing some "light" to guide you back. the 'fireflies' are the help he needs to help guide him back. thats my thoughts anyhow.

    finches new sound is more of an aquired taste. The average attention-starved emo middle schooler probably won't like their new music, however people who enjoy good, hard rock with tight screams, hard riffs, and cryptic lyrics will LOVE this new cd. that's me at least =)

    General CommentI listen to this when I am having a bad week and you are just looking for that something to help you get up and stop feeling shitty. And this song is kind of like a firefly to me.

    General CommentThis song has a really epic feel to it, which I just love! It makes me imagine someone taking a secret journey under cover of night. And sometimes vampires. Or astronauts.

    ...None of those things fit together at all. XD

    Anyway, I think this song is the kind that isn't really about anything in particular and focuses more on putting striking images into the listener's head. I like that it leaves it up to the listener to make associations. And I personally think the imagery in this song is spectacular.
