Of course, the album doesn't just highlight discontent and leave the audience hanging without resolution. Although Switchfoot doesn't get "preachy," they manage to tie their Christian faith back into the issues they raise. As the answer to the disappointments of life, Foreman sings (on "Head Over Heels (In This Life)"):
In this life, you’re the one place I call homeAnd although it isn't technically part of the album, my copy ends with the bonus track "C'mon, C'mon," which exclaims:
In this life, you’re the feeling I belong
In this life, you’re the flower and the thorn
You’re everything that’s fair in love and war
We will rise with the wings of the dawnAlthough Oh! Gravity. doesn't overtly point listeners to the ultimate meaning found in Christ, Switchfoot does a great job of raising important questions about life, questioning many of the prevailing notions held by our culture. And they certainly rock whilst doing it.
