"Count It All As Lost" as written by and Dustin Davidson Brent Rambler....
I want to believe these words are more than letters to me
I want to believe a covenant to stand the battlefield of time
Many times I've written words holding me to stay pure
Where is the truth in these motions, afterwards feeling motionless?
Motionless, I keep breaking my promises
I keep breaking my word to you and I
I keep breaking my promises
Once again, I'm letting you down

How must a broken man fix his brokenness if he's not the answer?
I can't do this on my own, on my own
I need you here, I need you here, I need you here
Each and every day that passes leaves me worse off than before
Many times I've sworn
I wouldn't look back, never look back

Instead of fighting to be a man I just want to know who I am
Fighting with my fists leaves me bloody and broken almost every single time,
So I'm going at it with your strength instead of mine
Please be my strength
So I'm going at it with your strength instead of mine
Please be my strength

I've carried this burden long enough
With a heart of conviction, I've betrayed us both
I have to forfeit
The shame is too much to take
Take the lead and reign over me
Reign reign reign over me
Reign reign reign over me

You knew you'd find me here
It took me losing sight to count it all as lost
For me to see that I'm finally found
Count it all as lost
There's so much more to gain
Count it all as lost
Take the lead and reign over me

    My InterpretationGiven the religious beliefs of the band I would suggest that this is a song about "failing" God, and wanting God to lead the way (get them back on the path to righteousness etc.)

    If I didn't know the bands religious beliefs I would suggest that this song could be about a loved one (a partner). To me it speaks a bit of how I felt before I met my wife. I needed someone to come along and give me strength and make me a better man. I felt broken after a bad relationship before her, and she was my rock (my salvation).

    That is what I love about music, you can take from it what you want ...
