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 living deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine, deep into my home
God, don't let me lose my nerve
Lose my nerve

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Wo oh 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

Because there's a monster living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel, with a hand on my head
She say's I've got nothing to fear
La illaha illaha
We all shine like stars
La illaha illaha
We all shine like stars
Then we fade away

    Chriss, you are a DUMBASS!!! It has nothin to with Islam!
    The song is talkin about how you need to keep your "lights" on, meaning to be aware of everything. "There's a monster living under my bed" is talkin about evil things will try to tempt you. "There's an angel with a hand on my head, she say say I got nothin to fear" means that there's always an angel watching over you & you shouldn't fear anything.
