Switchfoot – Thrive lyrics
Been fighting things that I can't see in
Like voices coming from the inside of me and
Like doing things I find hard to believe in
Am I myself or am I dreaming?

I've been awake for an hour or so
Checking for a pulse but I just don't know
Am I a man when I feel like a ghost?
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
A steering wheel don't mean you can drive
A warm body don't mean I'm alive
No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
Feels like I travel but I never arrive
I want to thrive not just survive

I come alive when I hear you singing
But lately I haven't been hearing a thing and
I get the feeling that I'm in between
A machine and a man who only looks like me

I try and hide it and not let it show
But deep down inside me I just don't know
Am I a man when I feel like a hoax?
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
A steering wheel don't mean you can drive
A warm body don't mean I'm alive
No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
Feels like I travel but I never arrive
I want to thrive not just survive

I'm always close but I'm never enough
I'm always in line but I'm never in love
I get so down but I won't give up
I get slowed down but I won't give up

Been fighting things that I can't see in
Like voices coming from the inside of me and
Like doing things I find hard to believe in
Am I myself or am I dreaming?

No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
A steering wheel don't mean you can drive
A warm body don't mean I'm alive
No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
Feel like I travel but I never arrive
I want to thrive not just survive

I want to thrive not just survive

    I think the song thrive means there's one point in our lives where we get confused. We try to figure who we are, where we are suppose to be, and where we need to go. Through life we have many difficult problems are everyone feels like there not good enough or disappointed in themselves. No matter what problem we go through we should always be thankful for what we have.

    Wanting to find real meaning in life, and live for it. "i want to thrive, not just survive. " wanting to give up all the meaningless parts of your life that seem to shape you into a person who isn't you. "the stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes. " wanting to live for what you know is right not just because you know its right, but because you are truly passionate about it. "i'm always in line but i'm never in love. "
    This has a lot to do with faith. It's about being spiritually numb because you've got caught up in the world.
