"Float On" as written by Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Dann Gallucci....
I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well, he just drove off - sometimes life's okay
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, ah what did I say?
Well, you just laughed it off and it was all okay

And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on anyway, well

A fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn some sleight of hand
Bad news comes, don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work it way to all them plans
We both got fired on, exactly, the same day
Well, we'll float on, good news is on the way

And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on okay
And we'll all float on alright

Already we'll all float on
Now don't you worry we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on alright
Don't worry we'll all float on

Alright, Already
And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on alright
Don't worry even if things end up a bit
Too heavy we'll all float on alright

Already, we'll all float on alright
Already, we'll all float on okay
Don't worry, even if things get heavy
We'll all float on alright

Already, we'll all float on
(Alright!)
Now don't you worry, we'll all float on
(Alright!)
We'll all float on

    General CommentIsaac Brock's Comments on Float On:

    "It was a completely conscious thing. I was just kind of fed up with how bad shit had been going, and how dark everything was, with bad news coming from everywhere. Our president is just a fucking daily dose of bad news! Then you've got the well-intentioned scientists telling us that everything is fucked. I just want to feel good for a day. I'd had some friends die, and with Jeremy kind of losing it... After we got out of that dark spot with everything melting down with the band, I just wanted to make a positive record. I think we managed to make a quarter of the record positive, and the rest is either kind of dark or more just relaxing into things being how they are, resigned."

    General CommentI love the new album. This song makes me want to do the safety dance while smoking a cigar...on a unicycle.

    General CommentTo anyone who has complained about other people starting to like indie-music:

    You obviously have little apreciation for the music itself, only for the image. Who the hell cares if other people like the same shit you do, shouldn't that give you some sort of affirmation of your taste? Or does your self worth rest too heavily on the fact that you feel you're unique because you listen to esoteric music? If you like the music, listen to it. If you don't like the music, don't. Its that simple.

    General CommentThis song Float On, to me, is very relateable. In life I try to live by the float on aspect which is whatever happens, happens. You cant always control everything you do and sometimes you just have to let things go. If there are people in your life that hurt you then just let them go because its not worth wasting your time. And at the end of the day it will all be worth it and it will just Float On.

    General CommentI think this song is about that sense of peace and wealth you feel when you've just lost everything, and you realize that life's just a joke. Something similar to Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life by Monthy Python

    General Commenti like how he titles this cd "good news for people who love bad news" its clever as hell, cuz usually his lyrics are depressing, which people love about it. now they are more positive on this cd, hence "good news for people who love bad news." meaning hes talking about his fans who loved his depressing music.

    from The Man himself.

Our president is just a fucking daily dose of bad news! Then you’ve got the well-intentioned scientists telling us that everything is fucked. I just want to feel good for a day.

    My OpinionI took this song at face value. I lost my little brother in January and this was the first song that let me feel like I would be ok (even if just a little).

    "even when things get heavy, we're all Float On"

    Life goes on, you don't have to forget. But you cant get stuck in the dark.

    That's what I still get from this song every time I listen to it. I'm able to think of my lil bro and smile.
