A Decade Under the Influence Lyrics
It used to be this dying breed
Well I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about this
You kept still until the long drive home
And slept safe and close to the window...
Well, I've got...

well the first on about the break up was good, and the second on star wars was interesting, but this is what adam said he wrote it about. he said it was about the most akward car ride he was ever on. it was a car ride to a coldplay concert (one of his favorite bands), with his ex girlfriend. they had broken up before the concert and he still had tickets, so she still wanted to go. so she did and he said the band played good, but the car ride was extremely akward. so he wrote a song, and surprising a song. if you look at the lyrics, it makes sense, and if you don't believe me go to youtube where I saw it. thnx for reding. oh and tbs and the song both are awsome! I give them both 5 stars! rock on!

Its about an ex girlfriend and boyfriend having an awkward car ride home from a concert together. Adam explained it in an interview.

This song reminds me of an awkward car ride with someone that no longer cares as much about the relationship and the "bad feeling" that it's not going to last. He/she may rather be with their other friends, but "to hell" with them, that perhaps "anyone will do tonight" so we'll just "settle... Settle". "My worst" my low expectations for the night/the ride do "bring out the best in you" and makes the awkwardness somewhat bearable.

Might sound strange, but when I hear this song, I always think of a person who really loves their sort of fragile girlfriend, but is sure that she's going to die. They feel bad because they're depressed and it's bringing out the full affect of how sweet she is, but they're actually thinking about getting a new girlfriend when she's gone.

I may be crazy, but this song sounds like it's about Star Wars (Episode II).
1. "A Decade Under the Influence."
-Anakin was in love with Padme for 10 years after he met her.
2. "I've got a bad feeling about this."
-Anakin says this line in the movie.
3."...my worst brings out the best in you"
-Anakin turns evil.
any other thoughts?
