Added DiffLines:

** "Dive In" sounds like a slightly pensive song about looking on the bright side... until you realize it's about [[WhileRomeBurns ignoring the worlds problems as long as they don't directly affect you]]
--> Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water rising...
--> Summers here to stay, and those sweet summer girls will dance forever
--> Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes, [[GaiasLament dive in the empty ocean]].

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Dave was born in South Africa, spent his childhood in New York, moved back to South Africa for his teen years, and then moved to Virginia after graduating from high school to avoid being conscripted into the South African army. His accent is stuck somewhere between South African, New England, and Mid-Atlantic.



* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Although Grey Street is an all around depressing song, lyrics such as these come up near the end. Especially, ironically, in the [[DarkeandEdgier: Lillywhite Session]]. Of course, the woman the song is about probably isn't listening...

** His appearance in the ''SaturdayNightLive'' sketch "The Mellow Show" is a great example. He played Ozzy Osbourne, and complained that Dave Matthews' voice made him want to [[BrownNote throw up in his hands]].

* WordSaladLyrics: An awful lot. You generally get the basic idea of what Dave is rambling about, but his lyrics can seem like non-sequiturs from one line to the next. This naturally leads to a lot of WildMassGuessing concerning the meaning of certain songs.

* UrineTrouble: Probably best not to mention their name in Chicago. (In the band's defense, the driver claimed responsibility for the 'tour bus incident.')
