The Glance experiments with various instruments and musical styles, but relies on acoustic instrumentation in order to stick to the roots of American music. In addition, The Glance's lyrics are uniquely American. They explore the psyche of the American citizen often focusing on religious and political issues, individuality, depression, empathy and vanity. Specifically, in "Happiness In Pills," the lyrics explore the lives of two people that must deal with unexpected pregnancy and the subsequent reaction of the mother that has long suffered from clinical depression. Both turn to prescription medicine to numb their pain, as many people often do in our over-medicated society. 'I Met My Match In The Bomb' explores the relationships between American soldiers and Afghan citizens who struggle with radical philosophies in times of constant war. The band members take their craft seriously, but the music is also motivated by a desire to entertain. Therefore, Matchmaker attempts to deal with these challenging themes with an upbeat attitude.
