Matchbox 20 - How Far We've Come Lyrics


I'm waking up at the start of the end of the world,
But it's feeling just like every other morning before,
Now I wonder what my life is gonna mean if it's gone,

The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
And I started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
And I can't remember caring for an hour or so
Started crying and I couldn't stop myself
I started running but there's no where to run to
I sat down on the street took a look at myself
Said, "Where you going, man? You know the world is headed for hell."
Say your goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come (right now)
Let's see how far we've come

Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

It's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
It was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you
Well it's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
Well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come (again)
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

    I love this song. A lot of people believe it's about the world ending but I think it's about suicide and depression. It makes me think that even though most of my life has been difficult, it's been getting better. Peace out brothers.

  63. John Smith

    Wow this song hits home for me right now.
    As someone coming of age in 2019 (20yo) I really do feel like I'm "waking up at the start of the end of the world", with just about a decade left for the world to act on climate change before irreversible damage is done. Despite the severity of the situation, everyday life is "feeling just like every other morning before", and no one ever talks about it in real life and nothing seems to change. "I guess we're gonna pretend" like everything is fine until our life support systems really start breaking down, at which point "I guess we're gonna find out" how bad it really can get. I find myself often "taking a look at myself" and my own inaction despite my full knowledge that the world is "headed for hell". How can I live with myself in the future knowing I did not act while there was still time? The babies and children of today would probably give anything to be in my shoes, old enough to act in 2019, and yet I am throwing away my opportunity and the luck I had to be born while there was still hope. Worse, I'm contributing to the problem with my lifestyle. To me "let's see how far we've come" means: are we advanced enough as a species to put aside our differences and act like our future depends on it? How can we claim to have "come far" and be an intelligent species if we can't even keep ourselves or our planet alive?
    it's like this song was taken right out of my own thoughts, and it is more relevant today than ever.

    I understand that our awareness holds a wealth of knowledge and power by, your own, know-how. For this might be that this has been time tested and time trialed long enough in these settings and out of these ways or throughout its duration to stand strong and within our reserves to say that everything will be okay and then as it is told about how this holds onto our vast reservoirs of needed wealth to be obtained and gained. As, this is also done by your own call to these challenges in gaining wealth from this given chance and opportunities to be earned and then to have been given the chance to earn a lot of silver and gold, for its returns in weight and how this measures to the balanced amounts in a pound, for pound fair scale to something that costs us our time is a measurement of ourselves in our self-value and self-pride or even self-worth and how, we may see, in our, know-how and how we may make our way in this, that is to be revealed in all of this in a self-reflections and self-respect that we may keep all of this self-contained in our internal or external viewing and how this may be represented by our internal and external ways to these characteristics that will always be given by your or my given exposure to these elements that will always show in those ways of how this may have an effect on you or others by my or even your own hospitality that may radiate in the revealing of your exuberance, of discoveries. Otherwise, in those down days that all have been through are a good example of what we may want returnable, in an example, of ways for some kinda new positive memory of sorts that's to be, found. However, this might be unobtainable that this will happen and this may or may not want back to a state of our own natural being and this is all going to be a wild climb through life while this apart of your world and with this and with you, are always attached to be your hopes and dreams. Then as you are your own witness to your internal and external calls that's to be released in our sins that we may lay to rest or to be sanctified through your ways of granular and by your design that will consecrate your climb, in these directions. Therefore our goals should be in the realms of being driven throughout our neverending search for happiness, as the main message. Then, in this is about our own worth or even what is worthy to you and for your know-how, for your self-confidence. Whereof in these foreseen platitudes on the horizon that may be teetering on the edge of those preceptions in what is known to our eyes. As this may be only a challenge to our know-how on how we may each to the other side. However through the scope of our perceptions that may be needed to be looked at into these areas by our in-depth abilities and our vivid visions that are only able to grasp these scenes of what I am to foresee... and then onto our surroundings that we gathered by our thoughts that are to be obtained and captured throughout our time and place to know that give us a captivated perspective that this should never be bliss in what you may miss or find out in a very good or bad things that are to be known and to know, to hold, to told, to be bold, to grew, to knew that you are to be seen as you see in this show we call life and then again to hold onto and for the fact that life' should not be a boring-story or a lame-game and even the same day-in and day-out. As this is about all of the trivial and all of the complex problems that we may conquer along our way and with these abilities... and... I am only one step away from a win of epic proportions or a failed attempt in these failures that again and later are to be won in your directions own corrections and in our own little subtleties in life's neverending quest to learn and to be heard. Whereas in and through all of the thickness-of-this-mess that we may be in and even in those thin-wins that we have endured and how this has played out every day and in the way, for everyone to find our way... but it seems as though that some things are more like an example of the movie... Fight Club, in the knowledge, learned and heard... The world is always going to be at some level of sense or nonsense or even to be seen as those, screwed up or in any realization to be given the consequential ways to choose our own path to the senses of obeyance in our own behaviors as a manner of speaking about the way I may know and in a trans of sorts to say as in, just, being, oblivious, in saying that you should be using your best and upmost best view that is' insight of the governmental rules and law that are to be followed by in time tested and time trialed in these insightful oversights to our right's that are for our written rules of your's or my regional inhabitants, to my or your own personal residency of rules in your life to follow, you and I'... or for, all of us, to know our own right's and to rely on your own learned and heard know-how to, these deeds and to, always do so... and these are always written down to our know-how to know and to also know that will always overshadow our deeds to do. So as these areas follow us in oversight that will overcast our life in its reflections to were your home does, reside and stand to say as being how you behave as being to what is unlawfully driven to go down those none-known roads that cross my path and through these events. Otherwise, on the other hand you're more prone to be awfully given a chance by your behavior and demeanor and as in this given in this chance moment that this is to be beholden to these given right's and to stand by those right moral judgment calls... That stand standard to the rules and law. However, this is something that we all need to accept and we should all take a break from this once in a while and lighten up about these mosaics of colorful up's and down's, twists and turns that we may take in this world... and... as we may shy in relief about these problems that you or I have overcome that may have overshadowed those past times and days that might have been in those hazy memories or past ways. And, as we may wave goodbye or say goodnight and say good day in those perceived and given those choices in these analogies ways to say... that are always in a constant realm of problems or a constant reminder of the truth that hurts and a constant game of feeling the need to help, do something, change the world and even feel as though your own life is not so bad after all, when you take everything into perspective.
