Third Eye Blind Lyrics. Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo I'm packed and I'm holding I'm smiling, she's living, she's golden She lives for me, says she lives for me Ovation, her own motivation She comes round and she goes down on me And I make her smile, like a drug for you Do ever what you wanna do, coming over you Keep on smiling, what we go through One stop to the rhythm that divides you And I speak to you like the chorus to the verse Chop another line like a coda with a curse Come on like a freak show takes the stage We give them the games we play, she said I want something else to get me through this Semi-charmed kinda life, baby, baby I want something else, I'm not listening when you say good-bye Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo The sky was gold, it was rose I was taking sips of it through my nose And I wish I could get back there, someplace back there Smiling in the pictures you would take Doing crystal meth, will lift you up until you break It won't stop, I won't come down I keep stock with a tick-tock rhythm, a bump for the drop And then I bumped up, I took the hit that I was given Then I bumped again, then I bumped again I said How do I get back there to the place where I fell asleep inside you How do I get myself back to the place where you said The sky was gold, it was rose Doo doo doo, doo doo-doo doo
It was released as the lead single from the album on May 10, , by Elektra Records. According to frontman Stephan Jenkins , the song is about crystal meth addiction and the feeling that "your life is always about to change and never be reliable". An alternative rock song with a rap -influenced singing style, the song's "doo, doo, doot" refrain was directly inspired by Lou Reed 's " Walk on the Wild Side ". The instrumentation used in the song includes guitars , brushes , and a drum machine. The concept of the song was developed through Jenkin's observations of friends using crystal meth at a Primus concert. Some reviewers, however, felt that the hook was crafted in manner that it would quickly become tiresome. Jenkins intended to write a song that acted as a San Francisco response to Lou Reed 's " Walk on the Wild Side ", with the "doo, doo, doot" chants present throughout the song being directly inspired by Reed's song. In an interview with Rolling Stone , Jenkins said that the concept of the song was developed through his observations of friends using crystal meth at a Primus concert.
