Hi, there! I see that you’ve asked some other blogs the same question and I’m sorry to disappoint you but I can only give you nearly the same answer. They boys always share the writing process, and often write songs during soundcheck before shows. Also, we know for sure that Marcus wrote “Feel the Tide”, and I believe that he also wrote “Liar,” based upon what he says at the beginning of this live recording. If I find out any other solid information, I promise I’ll share it here for you!
EDIT PART I - Thanks to laivine, here is an article in which Ben confirms Marcus wrote the lyrics to “Little Lion Man,” as well!
EDIT PART II - I just rifled through my archives for a quote I remembered where Ted mentions some of the band’s songwriting influences. He states in this interview that “Thistle and Weeds” was inspired by a dream that Marcus had. I’m not sure if that means Marcus wrote all the lyrics himself or not, but he had to have had a hand in them.
