"Jupiter" as written by and Maurice/white White....
Sometimes the only thing that saves you
Think of bad things luck never gave you
And although your true love has just left you
Well at least your mother kept you, yes she did
Be sure that a dreams alive
They're only short bursts in life
Are you able to be satisfied
Do expect fun all the time

Hey we can rock it easy and lay it in the fold
Hey we can shake you simply just by being cold
And if it falls apart will you still be my friend
Get back, we're gonna stick together

And so many things that have gone wrong
At least you have ears to hear this song
And if you reading in close caption
There's still bad things that could have happened, yes there is
Long time since we've first came here
Sometimes we fall on deaf ears
One thing I got to say before sales dive
Stay positive and love your life

Hey we can rock it easy and lay it in the fold
Hey we can shake you simply just by being cold
And if it falls apart will you still be my friend
Get back, we're gonna stick together, uh

    General Comment"Stay positive and love your life.."...one of 311's best lines.

    I think this song is a lot like Use of Time..only the message is hidden in a more upbeat melody. I think this song is sorta a "pep-talk" to themselves...they want to let everyone know that they're having fun living their dream while they can...("...be sure that a dreams alive...there only short burst in life..are you able to be satisfied...do you expect fun all the time...") They've been around for a long time, and a lot of people still don't appreciate what they've brought to the music world. They're talking about how they're sick of getting shafted with shitty record sales and reviews....but even if this happened to be the end for them...they wanted to go out with a positive message. ("...Long time since we've first came here...and sometimes we fall on deaf ears...one thing I've got to say before sales dive...stay positive and love your life..") They want everybody to remember to be thankful for what you have because things could be a lot worse ("and although your true love has just left you...well at least you mother kept you..") If things do go to hell, they want their true fans to stick by them...things will get better eventually...("...and if it falls apart will you still be my friend...get back we're gonna stick together")

    General Commentthe lyrics in this song truly descroibe how they see their situation. but then they see us, the excitable ones, and keep the positivity flowing. record sales mean dick, and by now all 311 fans should have recognized this. if they sold like an album once a week...would we still listen? FUCK YE! if they sold a million records a week thats when the trouble starts..311 isnt meant to be popular and i mean that in the nice way..its good not to be popular..and be 'underground' and still kicking it and everything....and ive been rambling on to much that i forgot the main point of this post..lol

    General CommentI could go on about the "stay positive" part but everyone's done that, I was listenin to this song today and what stuck out was the part "And if you reading in close caption/There's still bad things that could have happened" If something bad, even horrible, happens to you, at least you're around to know it happened, to understand what it meant. If you're alive you gotta be living, no matter what your circumstances. Definitely.

    General Commentthis song basically reminds me that, it could be worse(no matter what). stay positive and love your life! things are never as bad as they seem. at least you're alive.
