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 going to mean if it's gone,
The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
And I...

    The songs about when everything is dying around you and life seems to be ending as you know it there is still the same place you have always known. No matter if the world is ending you just got to keep going.

    I think that it's about looking back over the things we as humans have done to the world, and now, despite the evidence, people still are pretending that nothing is wrong.

    This song was real personal for me in that I found it (or it found me) as I was living in my van as things were crumbling around me. "Let's see how far we've come" reminded me to look at the good stuff and realize that despite everything, I was moving forward.

    I agree that the song is about the world ending, but I don't think Matchbox 20 is telling us at the time of apocalypse to reflect back on the course of the human race. I think they're telling us to grab someone and have sex, to put some pleasure in our lives before we all die ("how far we've come")

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song is talking about how the world is ending, and when it does we are going to see how far we've come, how well we've done, and how our lives are small compared to th world and how fa we've come. Kind of like " Dust in the Wind, by Kansas
