A true work in progress
My english teacher and I agree on the significance and insight behind this one.
You are not afraid to tell people the truth. So many punk songs, so many, are just complaining. It's a very complain ridden industry of music. But your lyrics, oh man, they don't complain. They acknowledge, accept, and deal with instead of just starring at it like adog being told a pun.
Clearly, you can't analyize the point of forever reaching for our goals without pointing out the grief that exists in the process. But from there you also acknowledge that around all that rain, you can see a way to work out what you've started. You also point out that this meaning reaches beyond looking at the now (despite stating to live in just today) and that looking back is not wrong, and is even good for clarification; to advance on your meaning.
What a good meaning.
So yes you live in today (the process), but because you remember and learn from the past (the work) you don't have to be afraid of the future (the result).
That's the truth I see. But who am I to say what is real and what is fake, right?
