"Southern Point" as written by Christopher Robert Bear, Daniel Raphael Rossen, Christopher M. Taylor and Edward Droste....
Our haven on
The southern point is calling us
Our haven on
The southern point is calling us
And faced with all
The obvious, she'll carry us
Avert your eyes from all of this
We'll make it all back

In the end
You'll never find
You'll never find
In the end (You'll never find me now)
In the end (You'll never find me now)
You'll never find (But I'll return to you)
You'll never find (When you return to me)

In the end

In the end
You'll never find
You'll never find
In the end (You'll never find me now)
In the end (You'll never find me now)
You'll never find (But I'll return to you)
You'll never find (When you return to me)

In regards to the last word
It's not the last you'll hear
I never find any other
I could ever
I could ever

Never say it's the last one
It's not the last one
I never find any other
I could ever
I could ever

    General CommentMaybe it's about letting go of grudges from the past. Finding your own faith that is true to you. And knowing that your mind is the creation of all you see, and that all you see is the creation of your mind.

    My Interpretationour haven on
    the southern point
    is calling us

    our haven on
    the southern point
    is calling us

    and faced with
    all the obvious
    she’ll carry us

    avert your eyes from all of this
    make it all back

    (x2)
    in the end,
    you’ll never find
    you’ll never find
    in the end, you’ll never find me now
    in the end you’ll never find me now
    you’ll never find
    but I’ll return to you
    you’ll never find
    when you return to me

    in regards to the last word
    it’s not the last you’ll hear
    I never find any other
    I could ever, I could ever

    General CommentA beautiful song. Haven't got the slightest idea of what it might mean, though.

    General CommentI think this is about a breakup, but clearly the singer still loves the person who broke their heart. Why is every song I love about heartbreak? I can never use the lyrics as my away message because I'd sound permanently emo-- LAME!

    General Commenthmm...I think the song is about the location where the band recorded this album. Veckatimest is a small, secluded island that's part of Massachusetts. According to Wikipedia, it registered as uninhabited by the 2000 census. The lyrics do give a sense of seclusion: "In the end (You'll never find me now)" or "Avert your eyes from all of this"

    And the lyrics do seem to imply that they band enjoyed it there, since they refer to it as a haven. At the same time, it seems like they're wondering how they'll readjust to society once they leave: "In regards to the last word/It's not the last you'll hear"

    I think it's a great opener for the album...it's expansive and intricate, and at times it's slightly eerie...much like the rest of the songs on the album.

    General CommentLike most songs, this is probably about a relationship, but what if it were written from the perspective of a Cuban refugee sailing to a place near Key West? Both a lover (or friends, family) and a native culture are being left behind (as well as the oppressors), although the voice seems optimistic that the "last word" hasn't been exchanged between all parties.

    General CommentI think this song really goes into depth about the pointlessness of Southern existence, and the broad moral territory the band as a whole has grown to inhabit.

    There's actually a very clever sexual innuendo here. I don't want to give it away, though--I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader!
