"Incomplete" as written by Daniel B. Estrin, Douglas Sean Robb and Chris Light Hesse....
He's washing his face to start his day
He's lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely
Nothing in the mirror ever shows him what's within
Now he's checking out the faces on the back of the milk
He's sour under all this pressure
He thinks the missing person looks an awful lot like him

And he starts his engine
But he knows he's missing gears

Incomplete
Where will you find yourself?
Incomplete
Where will you find yourself?
'Cause you're the missing person now
Step outside your doubts and let yourself be found

He's sick of the race to just save face
He's tired and tried, he's sick and tired
He's tired of the holes that are keeping him incomplete
He'll push the pedal to the floor like the day before
He's trying to be always trying
Try to find an end to justify his means

So he starts his engine
But he knows he's missing gears

Incomplete
Where will you find yourself?
Incomplete
Where will you find yourself?
'Cause you're the missing person now
Step outside the doubts and let yourself be found

So he starts his engine
But he knows that he's missing gears

Incomplete
Where will you find yourself?
Incomplete
Where will you lose yourself?
'Cause you're the missing person now
Step outside your doubts and let yourself be found
And let yourself be found and let yourself be found

    General Comment"And so the stage of the modern world is set. Now lets meet the cast. We are first introduced to an ordinary citizen, perhaps much like yourself. He starts his day just like you. After washing his face, he has a look in the mirror, a quick bowl of cereal and then he's off to work. Fighting the traffic, he's sick of his current state of being, he's tired of living just to exist. No missing gears. Incomplete. Incomplete! We are incomplete on our own. We are the missing people when we live inside of ourselves and inside of our doubts. There must be a loss of "incompleteness" in the process of becoming whole. "Whomever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will find it."- Jon Foreman

    General CommentNo comments on this song? Dang! Some people are definently missin' out if they haven't heard this one. It's great that someone or the 'net actually has these lyrics! :) It's a great song... since I'm the first person to comment I should probably say what I think it means... no offense, but ina way I hate doing this because I don't think anyone completly understands what a song MEANS except for the person who wrote it, and to every different person who hears the song could think of a different meaning for it. Basically I think it's just sayin...
    Step outside your doubts and let yourself be found
    And let yourself be found and let yourself be found
    Exactly what that says :)
    Peace -n- Love

    General CommentI think its asking the listener if they're the incomplete boy. But do they realize it? Sometimes you gotta stop trying and not give up just let things flow.
