"Sink Beneath The Line" as written by Gavin Koppel, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Alex Katunich and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Solstice sun it sank beneath the line
And the commoners were

Drunken upon the hillside
Or so the story goes.
I guess she followed along
So she could

Watch their games!
Sink beneath the line little girl.
Peak above the shrine them commoners were.
Harvest moon it peaked above the shrine
And the crawlers emerged multitudious!
Silly girl she sat upon their doorway
Just poppin a squat!
That's when she

Felt the squirms.
My underpants!
All I know is that she wanted to be part of the crowd.
I could've told her she was welcome here, anywhere!

But instead she combed the outskirts lookin inside
And then she sat upon a bughill.
This was when things started to get rough.

An army-o-de-pinchers climbed their creepy ways
Right inside her 5-0-1 cut-offs
And her skin took on a hue of a chemical unknown to me that's right!
They were biting her beneath the line.

She was a sitting on atop their shrine.
I wish I could've warned her!
"She should've worn underpants!
There's bugs crawling everywhere and shit,
I can't believe it!"

    General Commentearly Incubus is great. I think they should separate the two: a concert of new Incubus (Make Yourself onwards) and a concert of old Incubus (SCIENCE backwards)

    General CommentIt's funny that a lot of people think that this song is about oral sex, but it's really just about a girl that sat on an anthill without undies... lol Old Incubus is great. It's just too bad they've changed irreversably.

    General CommentIt Pains me I mean I feel sick when i think what happend to this band. Its like The Offspring with their cd SMASH that was their best it was so damn good but than they just move on and change thier sound to conform to what they need to be big. Fungus amongus is a very unique cd its FUNKY, There is nothing like it and compared to new Incubus even science you realize that their new stuff is crap. I pray that incubus could see this and go back to doing what they are good at which is being Original. if incubus did now what they did back in the early 90s it could easily become a tottaly new era of music.
    Dont get me wrong incubus is still a very talented band but why cnat they cant do some more funky things like on fungus amongus. They are a big enough band to try new things or in this case old things.

    To defy the laws of tradition.
    It's a crusade only of the brave.

    General CommentWell i like both incubus' equally. Old incubus' has the funk and the funny songs...to suit their age (15-19) the new incubus are more mature and write about profound things. their too old to write about people sitting on anthills?! lol

    General CommentIt sickens me that you're too closed-minded to like it all. Sink beneath the line here in my stellar pardon of burstings...Sheesh. If I had a dime for everytime you walked away from Incubus.

    General CommentIts about a girl, Brandon once knew in school. And he is actually singin about how he acted, and how it seems in his eyes. Actually the point of this song is, dont sink beneath the oposite things that are for you....
