"Flow" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Gotta find a way to flow
In a host of things that grow,
Where babies become old
And love is bought and sold.
The mouth of god is wide,
So let's just fall inside
And let the whole damn thing go
And flow...

Everybody's here
Mystery and beer
I have nothin to fear

'Cause I found a way to flow
In a host of things that grow
Where babies become old
And love is bought and sold.
The mouth of god is wide,
So let's just fall inside
And let every damn thing go
And flow...

Everbody's here
The mystery is near
I have nothin to fear

'Cause I found a way to flow
In a host of things that grow
These babies become old
And love is bought and sold.
The mouth of god is wide,
So I'll just fall inside
And let every damn thing go
And flow...

Everywhere we go
(Come inside)
Everywhere we go
Everywhere we go

    General CommentI think the song means that we live in a world of change (in a host of things that grow), a world where time passes (babies become old), and of failure, moral difficulty and corruption where even notions as pure as love can be commodified and stripped of their beauty. In this world, you have to find a sense of peace (or flow), to not be rendered cynical, angry or paralyzed by those states of the world that are unsuitable.

    In "falling" into the mouth of God, the song gives an alternative. The "falling" imagery implies surrender, passivity, giving over and the mouth imagery implies a smile - as if contentment and peace wait for you in the giving over. The mouth is wide because there's enough room for all of us and the song invites us to fall in together.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from V. I don't really understand some of the lyrics but the basic meaning is that he found himself and feels at peace with life and the world.

    My InterpretationTime is a river and we are along for the ride. If you fight the current, you're missing the point. At the end, we return to what brought us here... whatever that is.

    Don't forget to enjoy the ride and stop being so concerned about the material world... that isn't the mystery that is worth exploring.

    General Commenthe's saying he has to find a way to live without going insane (flow) in this world that eats away at you (where babies grow old) and few basic principles have lasting value (love is bought and sold)

    he finds solace in religioun however (the mouth of god is wide, so let's just fall inside) and that is the message of the song.
