(in reference to the Incubus song of this name)

I love this song. It's morose and somber without being depressing or annoying, and the lyrics are great.

The most vivid image that it conjures up for me, one that will likely live on with me for the rest of my life, was coming home from school on the afternoon of September 11, 2001. Having witnessed the carnage on the TVs at school, I now sat in my basement flipping through the channels on cable to observe how each station altered its normal schedule to pay respect to the victims of the attacks. MTV, as it would turn out, had suspended it's usual afternoon suckfest to just play videos and run the text message at the bottom of the screen "We are deeply saddened and shocked by the recent events in New York and Washington. Please support the American Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE-LIFE" or something similar. And, they were playing the video for Drive. It seemed so fitting, at the time, too.
