"Hooray" as written by and Cory Murchy Alex Rose....
It's cold, and snow's actually on the ground
Of this no-snow town
And instead of cars
Streets trafficking in sleds
Men become boys again

There's a war on the corner
With no guaranteed winner
It's just a snowfall of snowballs
Evidence of the winter

And I can feel my hands again
We're almost home

It's 2 PM and our snow is fallin' still
As our good city lay still
And our friends are packed
Around some no smoking bar
Warmin' on alcohol

We step into the silence
Yeah, we step slowly and quiet

All boys come on and girls join up
Just don't grow old
All boys come on and girls join up
We're almost home

this is all we want
Time to be with us
A home to lift the cold

Still cold, the snow's
Turning into rain
And melting away
And all these days slip by us
So let's keep them

All boys come on and girls join up
Just don't grow old
All boys come on and girls join up
We're almost home
We're almost home

    General CommentI think the song's about how winter and the magic of a first snowfall can turn everyone into a little kid again.

    Brilliant song. The chorus can still catch me by surprise every so often, it's just so unexpected.

    General CommentRight on with the comments about maintaining youth... he spells it out in the verse that mentions the snow 'turning in to rain, and melting away...and all these days slip by us, so let's keep them'.

    Keep the memories of youth fresh even when they try to fade... even when it rains keep the 'snow-days' close at hand to remind us of the magic in childhood.

    General Commenti love the new album, it has an awesome sound to it... but i miss the goofy song titles.

    this song definitely has a big metaphor in it.

    General Commentthey've really fallen into their own style. if they wern't already pretty unique, they've perfected it. they'll keep moving along though, im already waiting for the next release. the internet has spoiled us all, but you fuckers better be buying this record when it actually releases. its the least we can all do for enjoying it early.

    General CommentIf I had to guess, I'd say this song is about taking hold of your youth while you have the chance.
