"Return" as written by and Ken Hensley....
Awaiting on the last days
The bold red lettering has set the course
We live preceding birth pains
The earthquakes shake the hands that fight the wars

Like a stranger in the night
Showers falling from the sky
The rider left the gates wide open

Then Heaven hums a new song
The lights glow dim, oh, oh
A nation set on tombstone
The angels took us in, oh, oh

Be ready for deceivers
They claim, "I am the Christ" but have no heart
Let rest the unbelievers who deny having a role
But they play their part

Like a stranger in the night
Showers falling from the sky
The rider shows his face so glowing

Then Heaven hums a new song
The lights glow dim, oh, oh
A nation set on tombstone
The angels took us in, oh, oh

So this is it, it's how it comes to an end
Clean us out like the floods that rained in
You're the thief in the night but we stand
So this is it, it's how we comes to an end

We'll go, we'll go
On the hour that you left us unknown
We're standing firm
The trumpet sounds

Then Heaven hums a new song
The lights glow dim, oh, oh
A nation set on tombstone
The angels took us in, oh, oh

Then Heaven hums a new song
The lights glow dim, oh, oh
A nation set on tombstone
The angels took us in, oh, oh, oh

    General CommentWell the meaning is pretty obvious...Christ's return. I love this song! And I really love how they incorporated the strings in this song--it sounds really good. I'm glad that they made this song, it really solidifies that they truly are a christian band. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites by Capital Lights

    General Commentawesome song! some of the lyrics that should be changed ( at least what i think, i could be wrong...)are: a nation sat on dooms door should be, a nation set on tomb stone. the angels took his sin should be, the angels took us in. your the feet should be, your the thief. some of the ones im not sure about are : the writer left the gates, writer might be rider. and instead of lift receding birth pains it could be live preceding birth pains. just what i think :P but yea this song is obviosly about the return of Jesus

    My OpinionAs everyone else pointed out, this is indeed about the return of Christ. Kind of hard to miss that meaning. It's a great song, the one real spiritual song on the cd that claims this band as Christian.
