Crystal loves this song, and I do too. Matchbox Twenty is relevant and the music they make is relevant. What is the meaning of the song? For me it is saying that we can all fool ourselves that the world and everyone is okay when it really is not. So let’s do things our own way and see how far we can get before we have to face reality.
The name of the band already strikes a philosophical note. But listen to the song as it goes along the same line as Matchbox Twenty’s song.
