"The Age of Not Believing" is a very sombre song that hits a great note of nostalgia and regret for everyone who remembers the period of disillusionment around that age, but it ends on a distinct note of hope; "at last you start believing there's something wonderful in you". Charlie's Character Development from bratty, abrasive child to caring and sympathetic big brother figure proves it.
