"Ignition" as written by Tommy Stewart, Pete Murray, Neil Matthew Godfrey and John L. Fahnestock....
Start it up
Turn it on
We can ride this storm
A grip of hope in our hands
For the coming dawn
Up to our necks in complexities
Causing us to pause
As we collect our thoughts

So don't blink if you wanna come cross the border
Take a look around or come test the water
We won't stop 'till we see the morning
So welcome to the quiet before the storm hits

Turn on, turn on the ignition
Everybody
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition

Comatose
Half-hearted
Room temperature's fine
Sleep walking, no dream is even filling our minds
Earth shaking

We be quaking like a wake up bomb
This ain't no trouble overseas
No Vietnam

So don't blink if you wanna come cross the border
Take a look around or come test the water
We won't stop 'till we see the morning
So welcome to the quiet before the storm hits

(Take it up a notch, come on, come on turn it up a notch.)

Turn on, turn on the ignition
Everybody
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition

Your sleep walking
I'm sleep walking
Your sleep walking
I'm still talking
Come spark the parts in me that all but died
Jump start my heart and wake the sleeper inside
Hold up the flag 'cause it's ride or die
Hold up the flag 'cause it's ride or die

    Song Meaningthrough the line 'jumpstart the heart and wake the sleeper inside' I know that tobymac is comparing our body to a car, because you jumpstart vehicles. "Start is up, turn it on" means wake up your body. "We can ride this storm." We can make it through this world (or pain, or whatever's going on). "We won't stop till we see the morning" means we won't give up until we succeed. The message is sort of like "Before the Morning" by Josh Wilson.
