"Nowhere Fast" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Alex Katunich, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Will I ever get to where I'm going?
Will I ever follow through with what I had planned?

I guess it's possible that I have been a bit distracted
And the directions for me are a lot less in demand

Will I ever get to where I'm going?
If I do, will I know when I'm there?
If the wind blew me in the right direction
Would I even care?

I would
I take a look around
It's evident the scene has changed
And there are times when I feel improved upon the past
Then there are times when I can't seem to understand at all
And yes it seems as though I'm going nowhere
Really fucking fast

    General CommentI think it's about how life has it's ups and downs. You get stuck in a rut and don't know where the fuck you're going. You just keep chugging through each day and hope that the universe takes you there. And you assume that you'll get to where you'll be comfortable, but through all the bull shit would it matter anymore? The answer is yes, which is why he would care.

    Feel like this applies deeply to me, because I recently went through a lot of BS and gave up on life, something happened and things started picking up, but now that's getting shaky, but now I'm at the point where I'm just going to keep working forward and see what is to become of me and me and the person I love. Whatever happens, happens. In the end what will matter is we're happy and comfortable where we're at. This whole album is about being your own person outside of a couple songs, and people need to learn to find their own way before they can take on a path together with someone.

    General CommentBasically I think he's saying that he's caught in some kind of limbo, he's got a answer for every question and a question for every answer. Simply about searching for something, but restricted by the uncertainty stabs at his sense of integrity...

    Striking lyrics...Incubus rocks

    General CommentI think it's just about how he gets into ruts sometimes, and doesn't know where life is taking him... and it seems like, to him, "if I ever get to where I'm going, would I even care? I would". He want to find direction, but can't really.

    General Commentto me, it's about being on the wrong path in life and wondering if you'll ever get to where you're suppose to be...But in the midst of all your self imposed confusion, you wonder iuf you'll know when you're even ON the right track. would you even care? than he's deciding...i would care, i wanna make something of myself...hmmm but anyways, i like this song , these guys rock :)
