After Destination Anywhere Jon never wrote a song that really said anything. The themes were largely recycled and even though some really good songs came after that point, nothing was lyrically original.

Rubbish.

The themes of IML and Just Older had not been written before. Themes on songs like Last Man Standing, Whole Lot of Leaving, Brokenpromiseland, I'm With You, Room at the End of the World, This House is not for Sale, and Lower the Flag were never touched on pre Destination Anywhere.

Honestly, just sounds more like you stopped paying attention to the lyrics after 1997...

Nope. No bias here folks. The band stopped evolving when rockingguy82 stopped caring.

Where have you been through the last 2 decades? hahaha

Lower The Flag, American Reckoning, Do What You Can, Blood In The Water, Story Of Love, This House Is Not For Sale/Come On Up To Our House, Living With The Ghost, I Will Drive You Home... that just to mention the last two records.

This board has no sense it all.

Partly true, it's common knowledge that 30% of the songs post 2000s are "I'm gonna live my life" to varying degrees. But ofcourse he's a fine enough songwriter to squeeze in 10% great & 30% decent material every time. The remaining have been stinkers.
*these are extremely accurately deduced percentages, please don't question them.
