* LighterAndSofter: ''The Lost Mile,'' kind of. It's at least acknowledged by Matt Scannell to be more idealistic than its predecessors.

* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: According to Matt Scannell, "I'm Gonna Save You" provides this.
--> '''Matt Scannell:''' Sometimes complete disregard for reality and the absolute faith in oneís ability to overcome adversity can be unfounded, but also wonderful. This song comes from this place--thinking, "Thereís no question in my mind that I will absolutely take care of you."



* KnightInShiningArmor: "I'm Gonna Save You" embodies this concept, according to Matt.
--> '''Matt Scannell:''' Itís very much a knight in shining armor idea and sometimes that drives me crazy. Other times I think itíd be nice for someone to just come in and save the day.



--> (Matt's girlfriend) understands the mercurial changes in mood and gets that if Iím standing, staring out the window, Iím probably working. That can be a hard thing to get.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''There And Back Again'' and ''Running On Ice'' consist largely of songs recorded to a soft guitar rhythm with almost no percussion accompaniment. Then you listen to "We Are," the first song on the ''Everything You Want'' album, which has plenty of percussion and louder guitar sounds. From there on out it's a mix of the old and new.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Discussed in [[https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8212025/vertical-horizon-new-album-the-lost-mile-matt-scannell-interview this interview]] concerning the band's album ''The Lost Mile,'' which is noted to be much more optimistic than the albums that came before it.
--> '''Matt Scannell:''' I have an inherent dislike for snappy, happy, the-world-is-great songs because I think reality is never black or white--itís always a shade of gray. So, if you tell me everythingís perfect, Iíll call you on it, and I donít want to be the guy who then turns around and makes a shiny, happy record. But at the same time, Iíve learned not to manufacture the emotions that inspire my songs and that if Iím in a good place, to honor that. If Iím not heartbroken, I donít want to artificially insert myself into that place.

* BeautifulDreamer: "More" starts with a man and his lover in this position.
--> He pushes your hair back, just like you like it; he watches you sleeping until you wake up, wake up...
