This song is about allowing Christian religious morals rule your life through the fear of sinning.
The lyrics regarding water over wine and the references to the "masses" who allow those religious convictions to rule their lives.
Beautiful song and beautiful msg that I agree with. Not a huge fan of the chorus lyrics IMO a bit cheesy.
Please stop the insane arguing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/24/10
Music is made to make you think. That's one of the main reasons why it intrigues us as human beings. The fact that we have free will means that we will all think of and interpret things differently. So, that being said, this song means a multitude of things to an inordinate amount of people. Call it what you will, and leave your opinion in that little box that we call a brain. Music isn't meant to cause arguments, its meant to please. Don't change that, and if you want to change that, make sure you're not ruining it for everyone else.
water over wine | Reviewer: Richard | 2/22/10
I feel this song is about feeling almost... liberated by taking control of your own life- driving, and not letting other factors hold you back- wine. If you drink the wine, someone else has to drive you, metaphorically saying that if you let other things inhibit your life, you will eventually lose control of it. So take the best path you can, and make the best choices possible- drink the water.
Don' let fear drive your life | Reviewer: Kevin | 2/19/10
This song is about fear and how it can take control of your life and your choices. Fear stops us from pursuing our dreams and aspirations in life. Brandon is basically saying that he will from now on live the way he wants and to be the person he really is without fear being a factor. He no longer wants fear to "drive" his life. This is just one of many inspirational and brilliant songs from Incubus. They will forever be my favouite band and biggest musical infleunce.

I agree with you anonymous, im really a big fan of incubus since the song takemetoyourleader. This song is not about religion or faith at all and it's about live and let live. Why don't people realize that incubus is the greatest band of all time? XD
My opinion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/31/10
I think hes talking about his uncertainty about driving home under the influence and the problems that could face him and when he wakes up he'll be ready to face whatever shit hes gotten himself into

If it took all of this many years to figure out what this song's about then you're retarded. I'm going to be logical and assume it didn't so: Take your bullshit elsewhere, possibly to a blog site where people may actually spend the time to review the repetitive ramble about a once fantastic band that has since become withered and torn. That or, you know bury yourself before someone else has to smell the ridiculous pungent fumes of your rotting brain, which had been the cause of death over time, not the decency of an aneurism or stroke. Fuck I'm tired of retards.
By the way, great song! Much appreciated for the lyrics.
Me vs Fear | Reviewer: pat | 1/26/10
I think the lyrics of this song is simple as the fear versus the self...
"how much I let the fear Take the wheel and steer" (...)
"I Should be the one behind the wheel", whithout the fear that use to take the wheel and steer.
"Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there With open arms and open eyes yeah" - exacly... being free... whithout the fear that always drives ourselves.
get real | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/10
To anyone who considers this song to be religious is wrong. If you knew anything about Incubus you would know this. I've been a long time fan and have always thought that Brandon is the greatest song writer I've ever known. My personal view of this song is that a majority of the HIVE, drinks alcohol to deal with the fear of every day life. Will I choose water over wine, is saying, will I let fear control me and drown myself in alcohol or drugs, or will i take the wheel and steer. Live life for what it is and be sober, meet it head on. I seen them in NJ last summer, they kicked ass. Incubus is my religion!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i related this song to my expiriences. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/6/10
I think that the singer of Drive is talking about how he was afraid of being himself, or of doing what he wanted to do, because people would judge him. He also mentions that he’s happy with doing his own thing, and not let others decide how he should dress, or sing, or live his life: “But lately I'm beginning to find that I,
should be the one behind the wheel.”
“So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive” When he talks about “the hive”, he means other people who do things all the same, and who follow the “trend”. I think another message in that line is saying that he would pass up the benefits of being “in the group” for being himself. In this line, “But lately I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself my light is found.”, he’s happy with being himself.
What the lyrics matter to me: I can relate to this song, a LOT, because it tells about what I’ve been going through for the past year. I used to hang out with “the punks, emos, weirdos”, whatever “the hive” labels it. They are really nice people, not at all what other judgmental people have made them out to be like. Sure, the dress funny and listen to extreme music. I love them because they accept people, and they love me, even if I dress a little lighter than them. At the beginning of the year, I noticed one of my more-on-the-preppy-side friend (someone I’ve known since birth) started to act like, ‘you’re immature, go back to your group’ towards me (“And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer” when they talk about the fear, he means the fear of being judged by the “in” group). I changed myself, because of what she thought. I started to hang out less with my real friends, and more with the preppy group, changing myself.
In this song, I can see where he’s coming from. He wants to be himself.
The lyrics definitely reflect life. I’m living proof, and I’m positive it happens everywhere else. I may be wrong, but I think the whole drive of the song is telling you to be yourself, no matter what others may think of you.

great song, dont quite get the religious speculation. im a christian I believe that this music means certain things to certain people, i dont believe he would intentionally diss christianity because im sure the majority of his albums bought are by christian people, but then again hes not trying to follow the mqasses... very confusing lyrics. but then again im 17 haha
Hold the Wheel and Drive | Reviewer: Taryn | 12/12/09
I absolutely love this song. It came out when I was only 4 years old, but I've always loved this song and I've always really liked Incubus. There's just something about the combination of Brandon Boyd's voice and the music that makes you calm. It's the definition of "chill". I love it!!
peer pressure | Reviewer: Robert phipps | 12/3/09
song is great, sets a laid back mood and clears your mind. i love incubus's talent. that song has alot to do with the decisions you make everyday and choosing the right path for yourself. go with your gut and instinct and you may prevail with feelings of great positive emotion or just try and be like the rest of the group and be a follower
It's personal | Reviewer: Ellie | 11/29/09
I agree with the latest post about this song, it doesn't matter what any song was originally meant to 'mean' or symbolize. If it's a part of your life you will end up connecting it with something personal, whether it links or not.
I love incubus and grew up with their music but only recently started listening to them again with to my boyfriend. He's in the army and this song especially really helps me when things get tough, it reminds me that he's doing something important with his life and that I need to support him 'whatever tomorrow brings'.
Stuff the psychoanalysis. I just like the song!
