"The New Kid" as written by Alejandro M. Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alexander Pappas, Nathan Barcalow and Derek Doherty....
I'm on my way back home
I lost my way
I've gone astray
I'm on my way back home
They'll let me in, from the cold.

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, one day we will meet again

I'm sheltered here, in my wings
And I won't forget, you're everything
In your heart, is where I live
That's alright, you are alive

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, that one day we will meet again

Said I'm alright
And now
Said I'm alright...

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, that one day we will meet again

    General CommentUnless this song is a metaphor for something, it sounds like it's about him moving away from his girlfriend. The only thing keeping him going is knowing that someday he will see her again.

    General CommentI think it's about having to leave someone, and not being able to come back. Starting anew with everyone and everything. No matter what though, this song rocks.

    General CommentIt's about Nate's step-dad, who died on Super Bowl Sunday. he went to the store to get beer, and died in a car crash. the step dad is the new kid in Heaven.
