They've got something green just for our condition
Safely in hands
Any unconscious faith you had in your convictions
On an airplane we dance

And even off the aircraft
Everything seems to make us laugh
Attention won't come easy
It never did
It never did
It comes easier

We've got something great so hopefully you trust us
And don't do too much
Any unconscious faith you had in your convictions
On an airplane we dance

And even off the aircraft
Everything seems to make us laugh
Attention won't come easy
It never did
It never did

So what you ended up having to say
You're always gonna owe me the same
We're all, we're all over the influence
We're collecting interest

And even off the aircraft
Everything seems to make us laugh
Attention goes away
But we always end up
On the plane
We're off the plane
On the plane
We're off

    General CommentOops, sorry, I accidently clicked add comment when I wasn't done :( Anyways,

    I've had this song on my iPod for a while and never really noticed anything special about it besides a catchy guitar rift and interesting voice from Anthony, but yesterday I started thinking about what it could mean and was surprised

    I started really listening to it at:

    "And even off the aircraft
    Everything seems to make us laugh"

    When I heard this, I spontaneously thought, 'What would make me laugh at everything?" and after a few seconds, marijuana came into my mind. I then thought about the alignment of laughing to aircrafts, and airplanes are generally 'high'. At this point, I doubted the validity of my assumption because I have repeatedly heard from fans that Anthony Green is drug free, and a song dedicated to drugs would be a bit unusal. But then, I remembered Drug Dealer from Avalon and thought maybe it's a similar structure. So, I kept listening, and eventually heard:

    "We're all, we're all over the influence"

    And I immediately thought of those "above the influence" commercials. I hadn't quite persuaded myself yet, but after starting the song over and hearing:

    "They've got something green just for our condition"

    I was pretty certain it was related to weed.

    After realizing this, I started to actually analyze the lyrics. From what I understand, marijuana is symbolized by the 'airplane' that he dances on, and eventually, even when he's off the airplane (the drug), he still laughs at everything. Then later, again saying "We're all over the influence, and collecting interest." I thought maybe that either drugs had permanently made his life better and he no longer needed them, so he could sell them for "interest", or he was permabaked and doing the same thing. Either way, it seems to be about someone's addiction to pot eventually spiralling into a dealing state. Of course, I may be completely backwards and incorect, but there is clear evidence supporting this interpretation for a song with an otherwise hidden meaning.

    General Comment"we have something great so hopefully you trust us"
    hahaha in other words 'come smoke some buds with us, we've got the danks!'


    Dont smoke too much or you'll get carried away with it, and never stop dancing, even when you know you should.
    I love the feel of this song
    I love Anthony green
    I love circa survive
    I love you
