  • 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

  • Beth from Woodstock, CanadaActually, Matt was a borderline alcoholic. He talks about it often on his blog and talks about how he had to stop drinking for years.
  • Dave from Calgary, CanadaI'm not sure about that "borderline alcoholic" fact. Good only went to college for 3 weeks and "Decided it was crap and I wasn't going back" (according to an old HMV.com profile).

    I remember him saying it was something related to first year college students who think that they own the world, or something along those lines.
