"Light It Up" as written by and Malcom David Fender Phillip Robert....
Stand up like a soldier baby
Yeah, I know you're built like that
Gun it like a holster babe
Shouldn't see you weaken like that

Whenever the war is raging
Chasing our crazy dreams
Hoping that the bridge won't cave in
Tonight we'll let it all go free

Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Mash it up and step in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock

Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Mash it up and step in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock

Set it ablaze like a candle we lit, hotter
Yeah light it up, set it a
Light it up, light it up
Light it up

Fire like a soldier baby
No retreating when I treat that
Never make them hold ya baby
Hot like a fever when I take shots

Whenever when the war is raging
Chasing our crazy dreams
Hoping that the bridge won't cave in
Tonight we'll let it all go free

Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Mash it up and step in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock

Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock in my Benz
Mash it up and step in my Benz
Gimme the thing and let me rock

Set it ablaze like a candle we lit, hotter
Light it up, yeah light it up
Set it ablaze like a candle we lit, hotter
Yeah light it up, light it up
Light it up, light it up
(Light it up, mash it up)

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about just rocking out even when the war is happening in the background. Sometimes, there are tragedies happening all over the world, but we don't seem to notice or even care, because we're too busy partying. This song is letting us know how awful we are for ignoring the horrors of war that go on outside of the club.

    It could also mean the following: the first part of the song compares the listener to a soldier, but is all about partying. So I think Major Lazar is suggesting that when you party for a long enough time, you lose sight of what's real and tragic and ultimately combine the reality of war with the comforting fantasy of partying at the club.

    So I guess it's about losing your grip on reality. It's also really catchy. :)
