Matt Corby was inspired by the levels of consciousness theory when writing "Sooth Lady Wine." The lyric, "Get it to the seventh state," refers to the spiritual concept of reaching pure energy and being a balanced, enlightened human being.
In our interview with Corby
, he revealed how the song questions whether it's possible to achieve that state. "It's pretty much impossible to get there in this day in age. There's so much misinformation," he said. "There are so many racial issues and class issues and the world's just f--ked. So the end is like, sooth me lady wine. Just keep me level. Keep me going through this mess in a weird way."
