"Lighthouse" as written by and Tyler Smith John Feldmann....
We stand up tall
Even in the dark
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, they can't hold us back
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, we will shine on
To bring us back home

Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh

Sometimes I think I don't belong
I need some words, can't find the song
We all make a choice in life
I pray that I'm wrong

I can search in the endless sky
For a reason to survive
We all get lost at times
In our broken minds

We stand up tall
Even in the dark
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, they can't hold us back
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, we will shine on
To bring us back home

Rise above the veil of fear
Let them see your passion clear
We all have voices
It's time to be heard

Wake up
Shine on
This life is ours

We stand up tall
Even in the dark
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, they can't hold us back
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, we will shine on
To bring us back home

To bring us back home, to bring us back home
Bring us back home

We will be shinning on, on
We will be shinning on, on

We stand up tall
Even in the dark
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, they can't hold us back
Never forget we are a light house burning
Oh, we will shine on, we will shine on
We will shine on
To bring us back home

Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
To bring us back home
Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
To bring us back home

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about people not being able to hold themselves above water because of stresses in life, and other reasons (e.g. home troubles, school troubles, etc.), and this is reinforced by the music video, when the two actors go to the beach, and the woman disappears under a wave. She can't hold herself above the water (the term; 'hold her/himself above water', a euphemism for; not being able to keep yourself up from the troubles). The male (presumably her boyfriend), finds her under the water, and drags her over to the shore.
    (We stand up tall, even in the dark. Never forget we are a Lighthouse burning.) This is the male being a 'lighthouse' for the female (aka. a beacon of hope), taking her to the hospital, and then she awakes, to find the male sitting next to her bed.

    This is personally my favourite song from their new album, out of everything in the world.
