"Smile" as written by and Justine Elinor/matthews Frischmann....
The ship is hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh and

But im gonna try to slip inside the mind of a clown
To follow meeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Thinking I can save them

Thinking that I can turn a frown…
Into a smiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile

Into a smiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile
THE SHIP IS HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH
AND I DON'T KNOW
IF THEY'LL MAKE IT DOWN
BUT IM GONNA TRY TO SLIP INSDE
THE MIND OF A CLOWN
INTO A SMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILE
INTO A SMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILE
INTO A SMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILE
INTO A SMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILE

    General CommentThis was the first song i herd from them on my mum's mp3 player
    but anyways I also think its "the ship" NOT "your ship"
    this si what the song means to ME.

    The ship is high
    And I don't know if they'll make it down
    [That the people he cares about or himself are stuck in this sad mind frame and he's not sure if they'll ever feel "happy"]
    But I'm gonna try to slip inside the mind of a clown
    To follow me thinking I can save them
    Follow me, thinking I can turn their frown
    Into a smile
    [He's gunne try and put himself in a "happy" mind frame so than maybe others will copy and be more positive also their for "turn their frown into a smile"]

    overall he's just trying to make people feel better and give them hope when maybe theirs none left.

    General Commentno one has ventured to determine what this song MEANS yet?? im surprised. first of all, im not really sure he really says "your ship": i think he might be saying "the ship" or just implying "the ship". who knows....

    in any case, i kinda think its about his feeling responsible for the wellbeing of mankind. the ship is society maybe. i think he says "they follow me " also. hes maybe saying how all these people look up to him to help them and he only hopes he can do it, he's gonna try to slip inside the mind of a clown - ie, be optimistic.

    but really the amazing thing about this song, as is with many others - is the music put to these lyrics. its amazing, and always something that gives you goosebumps and fills you with energy. between his voice and that electric guitar riff, and great harmonies...its an amazing song.

    General CommentWatch the Video for it, and read the lyrics once more. Then you'll probably understand. Anyways, this song is one of my favourite Flickerstick songs, and one of the first songs I heard from them. Its extremely powerful, yet soothing and relaxing. All in all, its AWESOME!
