"Float" as written by Andrew Francis Goddard, Mark Daniel Hosking, Ian Lewis Kenny, Stephen Charles Judd and Jonathan Peter Stockman....
Not ever
No never
Not ever will the know this love

What they wanted was a sign
That they could hear everlasting
I refrain they sing aloud to

All we want
Is just enough to get by

We all pretend to understand it
To give us the feeling like
We won't allow it

Forever
And ever
Forever will they know this light

Cornered enough to make a sound
Hear it everlasting
We refrain they're not allowed to

Have enough
Just enough to get by

The freedoms
We're ever chasing
Just when the feeling strikes
We're not around it

Cornered enough to make a sound
Just to hear them leaving
They'll refrain they sing aloud to

Just enough to get by
Just enough to get by
Just enough to get by
Just enough to get by

    My InterpretationIt sounds like people looking for hope. They go seeking for some hope, to allow them to proceed in life. These people pretend to understand 'higher' things to bring purpose in their life, such as the afterlife, like heaven, or a source of eternal love- the eternal light, that others will never know. They cling onto the notion that they are eternal and serve a higher purpose to give them meaning, like children to an eternal father, or sheep for the shepherd. I believe this song is about the lure of hope that religion uses to snare many 'sheep' with promises of love, purpose, and security. They sing aloud praises to this figure of eternal love, basking in bliss, yet blind to the reality, that many others have their own versions of gods.
