"All The Faint Lights" as written by and Steven Thomas Moakler....
Lies are like stones, they sink in
Pull in the air you're breathing
You can keep it inside
The devil will reside if you let him

Our hearts are all barricaded
And the poisons will decorate it
I want to know love
I want to be where you are

So show me the way
I want to be like that
I want to hear you call my name and not look back

'Cause all the faint lights
They left me stranded and lost
Reaching through empty pockets trying to pay my cost
I put up a fight
But now it's taking it's toll
I'm waiting for something to set fire
Wake up my soul

All the people are trapped on freeways
With signs that say, "Have it your way"
But we all lost track soon as we got control

So show me the way
I want to be like that
And I wanna hear you call my name and not look back

'Cause all the faint lights
They left me stranded and lost
Reaching through empty pockets trying to pay my cost
I put up a fight
But now it's taking it's toll
I'm waiting for something to set fire
Wake up my soul

When the weight is on, I feel alone
Trapped inside my flesh and bones
But if I let go of everything
The stars compose a song to sing

A song for all the faint lights
They left me stranded and lost
Reaching through empty pockets trying to pay my cost
I put up a fight
But now it's taking it's toll
I'm waiting for something to set fire
Wake up my soul

    General Commentfavorite song of steve's. I've known steve since he was pretty much just getting out of high school and its been amazing watching as he makes a name for himself.

    This song always sings right to me, and if i remember right from one of his dayton concerts, this song is about just pushing and pushing at a path or something you want in life. Until you finally realize that you need to let it go and try something new.
