Be as honest as you can be
Question orders, accept ideas
Make a meal of what you're eating
Don't be scared of social fears

Oh that's what Charlie said

Pass the plate before it gets heavy
Have what's given, give what's gained
Spot the gaps but know connections
See how freedoms are retained

And that's what Charlie said

Play with work and work with play
Make it all come back some day
Be more entrance than departure
Know somehow something you're after

Oh that's what Charlie said

Under the influence
It turns the senses to directions
Never known before
It sets us up and keeps the score
Provides a point to reach then we've got there
And start again

Provides a point to reach then we've got there
And start again

I don't agree with it
I think it's really good
Here's something else to fit
And now it's understood
My head's struck in advice
Under the influence
I had to ask him twice
And then it all made sense

Come here and pull up an edge
And tell me your name
I'm no longer sure I've met you before
And I'd like to meet you again

Under the influence, under the influence
Under the influence, under the influence
Under the influence, under the influence
