    @JJ – I completely agree! Part of me wants to think the lyrics are too “Christian radio,” but I can’t help but feel that they are more Jon Foreman being heartfelt and honest. If you let yourself get caught up in the meaning, I think it is incredibly powerful. Ironically, it might end up being a hit on Christian radio.

    Yessssssss….. “Float” is my jam right now. Just listened to “Live It Well” for the first time. I didn’t know they’d released two songs! Love this band so much.

    Scott: and ironically… I work for a radio station. Guess what song we just started playing yesterday? 😉 I hope it’s a hit! We need more good songs like this.

    @Jen – That’s great! As I’ve listened to it more, I really feel it’s beautifully written; especially the verses. Could these two songs be more different? Switchfoot is masterful at flipping between indie art rock, hard rock and emotionally deep ballads. There are times that I can’t help but feel Jon Foreman is a modern day prophet, or, at least, a brilliant social critic. Ghost Machine, from his most recent set of EPs, commanded my attention with every word. If you’re reading this and haven’t heard it, I believe it will be worth your time.
