They say you are right
I hope that I'm wrong
I know that you tried
But still it is gone

Just don't you lose hope
I swear I'd never dream that we're alone
But don't you let go
I swear I still believe though I don't know

Remember the years
I still walk tall
I only fear
Now I only crawl

How could I be wrong?
I hope there comes a day your fear is gone
How could we be lost?
Lost just cease to be not carry on

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone

You can love some God
Go never to ask why
Or to fear again
Go find your peace tonight
Go set out towards the Sun
Let the view begin
Go soon your day will come
Day will come

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone

Into the light may you fall
Into the light may you follow
Into the light may you know
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone
Truth alone

    I think a part of this song laments about those who follow any religion that preaches love, but then do so poorly in reflecting that lesson while still declaring themselves a practitioner of that religion. The line as a standalone idea seems to communicate with a note of irony, or perhaps sarcasm, the idea that people can say they love God when they can't love each other.

    The part of "the faithful" that Mark sings, in this respect, isn't trying to come over the top and convince "the skeptic" that something exists, but rather creating a solidarity in the act of questioning and keeping an open mind. To that extent, they have just as much fear as the faithful is hoping dissolves from the skeptic.

    I dont think mark has doubt. Saying "how could i be wrong? " is more of a rhetorical question. Saying "... Though i dont know" doesnt suggest doubt either. It just means because he hasnt died yet it's not 100% persuasion.

    From my point of view, myles and mark are having a chat about hope and belief in the first verse.

    In the second verse i think myles is clearly stating that you just have to live your life, if there is a god or not.

    The light in this song is somewhat your own opinion about god, for you'll fall, follow and know your own belief, whether it's right or wrong; the only truth that you create.

    Myles said in an interview that the entire album is to do with a person who is having trouble with their faith so this song is probably showing how this person still has doubts despite having an entire album written about them. Although it could be seen as how modern day society battles with itself over whether there is a god or we just die and then there is nothing so there isn't much point living in the first place
