"Under the Influence" as written by and Matthew/genn Good....
I wish I was a pigeon
Slipping through the heaven\'s
Like a 747
Everyone left down below

Locked in a house of my invention
Learning the don\'t of fire prevention
If I roast marshmallows over their bodies
Do you think god will still find their souls?

Just want to be like we used to
Under the influence
Just want to see like we used to
Under the influence
Under the influence

I dreamed I was a white tip
Slipping through the pacific
My heart for a shipwreck
And your legs left down below

Some things they come
All things they go
There ain't nothing like exploding
if you've got something to explode
Something

Just want to be like we used to
Under the influence
Just want to see like we used to
Under the influence
Under the influence

Just want to be like we used to
Under the influence
Just want to see like we used to
Under the influence

Under the in... (oh oh)
Under the in... (oh oh)
(oh)

    General CommentThis is one of my all time favourtie Matt Good songs. There so much emotion in to this ( not that all his songs aren't packed full of emotion ) but this is just amazing. It's one of those songs that everything is just perfect it. If it were any other way it wouldnt be as good.

    General CommentI couldn't agree more... this song is just... perfect!
    everytime I listen to it, it just does something, it has that intangable, that "IT" quality that makes it amazing.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the TV series 'Lost'. The lyrics of the song match up almost perfectly and the general theme of wanting to be under the influence again is a lot like the islanders wanting to be back in their messed up lives away from the island.

    I personally love the lines:

    " I dreamed I was a pigeon
    Slipping through the heavens
    Like a seven forty seven"

    Just going from that idea of being something delicate and graceful and then changing it instantly to an enormous titanic force is very, very clever.

    Also:

    "Learning the don'ts of fire prevention"

    Seriously, how great is that!
