It's about a drug addict fucking his girlfriend and doing meth.

Truth.

I didn't think it was too obvious.

it really isn't, or it wasn't for me because I started listening to Third Eye Blind when I was 8 and the lyrics are delivered so fast, but like a year ago I ACTUALLY listened to the lyrics and I was kinda surprised.

winnie the pooh + dark pop ballads = wtflulz

Either way, it's still a good song.


The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called...

lol, Big Shiny Tunes 2. Best compilation album ever.

Although I can never hear "Semi Charmed Life" without immediately expecting "Walking on the Sun" to come on next.

Truth.

Such a dirty song, and yet I feel that this song inspired every bit of Disney-crafted pop since then.

Well, you know that song "cocaine" by Eric Clapton, despite what people think, it isnt for drugs its against them.


I am not witty or clever enough to make my own sig, thus I have stolen one instead.

The other thing about that song is that there was an entire verse cut from the version played on the radio. I forget exact lyrics but there's mention of "little red panties" and "face down on the matress" which was all cut out for radio.

Third Eye Blind would be a pretty awesome name for an erectile dysfunction support group.

Truth.

Truth.

I always wondered if there was a sexual gesture in the band's name.

About 10 years ago I got tickets to Late Night with Dave Letterman. The guests that evening were Nathan Lane and Third Eye Blind. They played that song. It was actually gayer than Nathan Lane.

I kinda thought it was about getting 'blinded by the third eye', as in getting a load right in the eyes.
