"Put Your Lights On" as written by and Erik Schrody....
Hey now
All you sinners
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you lovers
Put your lights on
Put your lights on

Hey now
All you killers
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on

'Cause there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel
With a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear

There's a darkness
Livin' deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine
Deep into my hole
God, don't let me lose my nerve
Don't let me lose my nerve

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Whoa-oh hey now
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now

Hey now
All you sinners
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now
All you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on

'Cause there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
And there's an angel
With a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear
She say
La ilaha illallah
We all shine like stars
La ilaha illallah
We all shine like stars
And then we fade away

    General CommentI always imagined a serial killer (one of those who somehow feel entitled to "do justice") getting out to kill, warning all the sinners and talking about the voices in his head (the monster under his bed) I've seen plenty of those fanatic nutters.

    General CommentBeautiful song about the soul, torn between good and evil. My easily frightened 7 year old loves it b/c the imagery of an angel helping her is both powerful and comforting. And it ends with the Arabic words, which mean, there is no god but the One God. Very cool, one of my favorites.

    General CommentI think Lori kinda got it. The more I listen to it, the more it seems to be talking about the things inside we're afraid or ashamed of. We all have to put the lights on inside us and look at who we are and see if this is how we really want to live and be. Religion tells us that we have nothing to fear because God (or whoever you pray to) will be there for us, but regardless it's so tough and scary to look at who we really are. Children are already innocent from sin in this song, so they leave their lights on, everyone else can't help but sin, we need to turn our lights on and repent for who we are, put light on the monster inside each of us.
    -Under his bed has the imagery of a place that rarely sees light, the monster/ sins in us, don't get thought about cause we don't like to think about it.
    -Everlast must have been thinking about how it took a near-death experience to really see how we need to look at our life, so why now write a song to tell everyone body about it.
    -"hey now" we need to take responsibility and repent for our sins instead of ignoring and hiding the light from them.
