Incubus Drive Lyrics

Last updated: 09/16/2014 08:54:38 AM

Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I'm beginning to find that I
Should be the one behind the wheel

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
I'll be there

So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive?
It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around
But lately I'm beginning to find that
When I drive myself my light is found

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
I'll be there

Would you choose water over wine
Hold the wheel and drive

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
I'll be there

Well, it's rather simple... | Reviewer: Outlaw_star | 9/16/14

This song is somehow life explained. Story behind is, you got the power and tools required to fulfill whatever you want to. Fear is a big factor in our lives, preventing us to act on our own and just fallowing "the hive". In this song, you should focus on 2 main things; 1) "Whatever tommorrow brings I'll be there" and 2) "When I drive myself my light is found" :)

"Whatever Tomorrow brings I'll be There" is the title and the whole point of the song. Don't fret and stress over the unknown and unknowable and endless, infinite details of tomorrow. Living life worried about the foggy, hazy cloud, called the future, makes life impossible to enjoy. Live the gift of today and enjoy the moment, for all too soon it will be gone forever.

Meaning | Reviewer: Kettil | 5/20/12

The song is about locus of control - an external locus means that we perceive the things that happen to us as beyond our control, a function of circumstance. An internal locus of control implies that we are masters of our own fate. The song is really about taking ownership of our own lives and cultivating an internal locus of control. You are responsible - not the booze, not circumstances, not anyone else, no matter what, be "present" in your own life.

Who Moved my Cheese? | Reviewer: wri7913 | 3/27/12

This whole song is about fearing change then learning to embrace and accept it.

Read the book "Who Moved My Cheese?" - Spencer Johnson, M.D. and you will find the same message there that can be applied to life and work.

Fuck I'm back in 2000/1 | Reviewer: And I can't help but ask myself | 1/13/12

I just listen to this song and it keeps me back to my teenage years. I remember my girlfriend while she's saying "Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there".
I know, often this song's connected with love. I know why.

Individuality | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/13/11

I always saw the water/wine thing as using religious imagery as tip tip-off to what's actually a non-religious metaphor: wine=communion=being part of the collective, while water=not wine=being an individual. But even if you view it as sobriety v. intoxication or reason v. religion, the song boils down to taking control of your own life rather than letting fear, group-think, subastance abuse OR religion control you.

Brandon( the lead singer, ya know the one who wrote the song) actually says in an interview "The song is basically about fear, about being driven all your life by it and making decisions from fear. It's about imagining what life would be like if you didn't live it that way." It's a great song, just ending any confusion.

Water or wine | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/3/11

What does it matter what the song meant to him? What matters is what it means to you. In fact, it's far more interesting to hear what differences two people will come up with in the interpretation of the song than to hear what the artist was going for.
This whole, 'It means this.' 'No, it means this.' thing could even be fitted into the song. Many of you are trying to figure out what the song meant to Brandon instead of for yourself. You guys are letting the wine get to you. :P

Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/2/11

Who cares what the song is about, if it means something to someone then its served it's purpose.

I'm afraid the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 does not immediately spring to mind when I listen to this song, what a laugh.

Duh! | Reviewer: James | 9/26/11

It's obviously about the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871, and the role Utilitarian philosophy played in the culture and decision-making surrounding that conflict.

How that could elude you people, who are arguing about "contolling your destiny" and other nonsense, is beyond me. Didn't you even listen to it?

Love It | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/5/11

twice in the last 10 years this song has helped me to Drive literally 1,000's of miles in order to rediscover the Communion with Christ Jesus. The first time, Oklahoma to Arizona with nothing but Faith and the second time just this August with my daughter from the first drive - from Oklahoma to Utah - God is Good and Incubus, I choose the Water of Life along with the Wine of Representation and I personally thank you for a great song. I believe inspired.

Drive | Reviewer: Matt | 4/26/11

The song is about being in control of your own life. Which is why its called "drive" (drive your own life). the first first he talks about how he let the fear take the wheel but lately he realizes he should be the one behind the wheel. The second verse he talks about how most people in the world (hive) drink and arent of sober mind and therefore arent in control of their life. Then he says again when he drives his own life his life is found. The songs about being yourself and always being in control of your life. Not letting fear or drugs etc control your life...

Stupid People. | Reviewer: Jeremy | 4/23/11

Hahaha seriously guys? Do people need to look into these lyrics so much to find the "real meaning" of them to the artist? Let it mean different things to all of us, who cares what it means to the artist! You can relate this song to so many different situations in life it's ridiculous. It's a good jam tune! Just listen to it!

meaning | Reviewer: mwm | 11/16/10

It's about every interpretation that has been proposed. It has the meaning he felt when he wrote the song. Everyone will have their own interpretation of most songs (that don't have a distinct, clear meaning stated). I take it as meaning that one should be oneself, see life as it is, and take control of one's life. I also see the alcohol message in it: "Would you choose water over wine? Take the wheel and drive."
