"Bright End Of Nowhere" as written by and Matthew Good....
Here's the bright end of nowhere
Here's the results of all our days
Used to lay on the roof and drink beer
And try and count up all the ways
That you could waste away
Looking back it seemed so simple
But having done it I couldn't say

The lights are out baby
And I'm a mouse
The lights are out
Baby so hear me out
The lights are out baby
And I'm a mouse

So here's the bright end of nowhere
Here's the commercial of all our days
Go on vacations and drink beer
And try and forget all the ways
We let ourselves get away
Looking back it seemed so simple
But having done it
It's not the same

The lights are out baby
And I'm a mouse
The lights are out
Baby so hear me out
The lights are out baby
And I'm a mouse

    General CommentI think this song's about being burnt out after getting famous. It sounds like a before and after, maybe, where he's talking about the old days in the first verse and what it's like now in the second.

    The song sounds like a confession, reminiscing with an old friend. That's probably what the chorus is about, also.

    General CommentHm... I honestly don't see what Jamfish means, though I can understand as much as the confession on a rooftop to a friend. But I dunno... Seems different than that.

    General CommentTo me this sounds like Matt good has given up. Not because he has lost or has been beaten;

    He's admitted defeat because he has become false to himself. He's seen the hardships now, to the degree that he no longer understands his origional standpoint; that surviving throught this world isn't that tough. It's you against me(teenagers); it's you against us(mature); it's you against my family(adult). He's accepted the fact that you can't fight this world. It can be beautiful at so many points, but in the end all the deaths, pain, holding things in about whatever big or small, etc, etc... Has made its impact.

    That is just the first 1:40 seconds of this song in my perspective. Long story short, he isn't sad. He's accepted this and can just look at the world in a passive way, accepping the beautifully amazing things and the horribly painful experiences. Both amplify the other feeling. You couldn't feel this happy at memories of good times if you can't appreciate how much the bad times take lashes at your being. Life becomes.

    I've just read through this, and it isn't long story short, but Incubus' "Are you in?" Is on next and I really want to listen to it as It's been like 5 of this Matt Goods' song in a row and I've gotta sleep soon so fuck this shit.

    Taker' easy.
