"Point Me Toward The Morning" as written by John Feldmann and The Matches....
Eternity, eternity
It's just a paycheck away
So chase that tail, chase your tail
The American tale
Apathy, complacency
Can I hear three cheers for thee?
(No? Oh well...)
Ahhh...

We know, we know, that we are more than this
More than we know, there's a reason we exist
We know, we know, we know
We won't be this easily dismissed

Commute, work, commute, sleep
We've got cars and homes to feed
Left my hair, left my hair, strands of myself in the sink
Nothing to say, nothing to say
'Cause that's all, all they wanna hear
Ahhh...

We know, we know that we are more than this
More than we know, there's a reason we exist
We know, we know, we know
We won't be this easily dismissed

So point me toward the morning
Can you point me toward the morning
Someone point me toward the morning
No more is it a sure thing
So point me toward the morning
Can you point me toward the morning
Someone point me toward the...

Apartment complex reeks
Of old takeout Chinese
At night the ventilation speaks
Russian and Cantonese
Ahhh...

We know, we know, that we are more than this
More than we know, there's a reason we exist
We know, we know, we know
We won't be this easily dismissed
Oh, we know, we know that we are more than this
More than we know, there's a reason we exist
We know, we know, we know...
We won't be this easily dismissed
No, we won't be so easily dismissed

    General Comment(?)= "Can I hear three cheers for these?"

    I love this song! It rocks. And it might give a generation or two something to think of in terms of their future and their government. But, hey, how would I know what the composer was thinking? Just seems that way to me!
    And good for the Matches if that's what they're implying!

    General CommentTo me this song is talking about dullness and repeditiveness of live and being ignored. I love this song.

    General CommentHmm, on second thoughts, I think it may be about getting into the music industry. Kepping on going and fighting no matter how much you get puched back.
    Much better:)

    General CommentI don't think this song is about the government.. at all. The song seems more to be about getting into the rut of daily life.

    Commute work, commute sleep
    We got cars at home to feed

    General CommentYeah, the whole 'point me toward the morning; no more is it a sure thing' seems to be living in the wake of terror, not knowing whether today will be your last or not...

    Basically, it's the anxieties and problems that face everyone in day-to-day life, or at least that's my take.

    General CommentI think this might have something to do with the matches almost giving up on themselves after decomposer flopped on the charts... but then realizing that they aren't the type to back off so easily... but! they are still unsure about the futrue... I dont know... something like that...

    General Commentthey kinda changed their style on the new album, a band in hope. except for a couple songs, including this one. probably because they arent doing so well. still love them and their new songs though.

    General CommentThis isn't new, by any means...
    I like what they did though.
    The original, "Sing Outside the Lines" is from the days of The Locals.

    General CommentI think this song is definitely about them trying to make it in the music business. When decomposer flopped they kinda tried to switch things up.

    "Left my hair, left my hair
    Strands of myself in the sink
    Nothing to say, nothing to say
    'Cause that's all they want to hear"
    thats talking about how shawn cut his hair cause a kid said he looked like davey havok and he left the strands in the hotel sink.

    "Ohhhhh
    We know, we know
    That we are more than this
    More than we know
    There's a reason we exist
    We know, we know, we know!
    We won't be this easily dismissed"

    they know theyre better than what theyre getting credit for in the music world. they have a different style and sound and theyre not going to give up trying to make because they know "theres a reason they exist"

    its just about trying to stay true to themselves and get their music out there
