**Third Eye Blind**
Semi-Charmed Life

"Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...
I'm packed and I'm holding I'm smiling
She living she golden and 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 want to 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 kind of 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 to my nose
And I wish I could get back there
Some place back there
Smiling in the pictures you would take
Doing crystal myth
Will lift you up until you break
It won't stop, I won't come down, I keep stock
With a tick tock rhythm and a bump for the drop
And then I bumped up
I took the hit I was given
Then I bumped again
And then I bumped again she 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
I want something else to get me through this
Semi-charmed kind of life baby baby
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye
I believe in the sand beneath my toes
The beach gives a feeling an earthy feeling
I believe in the faith that grows
And the four right chords can make me cry
When I'm with you I feel like I could die
And that would be all right, all right

[the following part was cut out of the radio edit]

When the plane came in
She said she was crashing
The velvet it rips in the city we tripped
On the urge to feel alive but now I'm struggling to survive
Those days you were wearing that velvet dress
You're the priestess I must confess
Those little red panties they pass the test
Slides up around the belly
Face down on the mattress
One, and you hold me and we're broken
Still it's all that I want to do just a little now
Feel myself heavy as the ground
I'm scared but I'm not coming down no no
And I won't run for my life
She's got her jaws now locked down in a smile
But nothing is all right, all right

[end of part that was edited out]

I want something else
To get me through this life baby
I want something else
Not listening when you say
Good-bye
Good-bye
Good-bye
Good-bye
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...
The sky was gold it was rose
I was taking sips of it to my nose
And I wish I could get back there someplace
Back there in the place we used to
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...
I want something else..."

Cold As Ice

"Youre as cold as ice,
youre willing to sacrifice, our love
You never take advice,
someday you'll pay the price, I know

Ive seen it before, it happens all the time
Youre closing the door, you leave the world behind
Youre digging for gold, you're throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday you'll pay

Youre as cold as ice,
youre willing to sacrifice, our love
You want paradise,
but someday you'll pay the price, I know

Ive seen it before, it happens all the time
Youre closing the door, you leave the world behind
You're digging for gold, you're throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday you'll pay

Cold as ice - you know that you are
Cold as ice - as cold as ice to me
Cold as ice

You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know,
yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know,
oh yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know,
oh yes I know
You're as cold as ice... (to fade)"

think of anymore?

god dammit that bothered me so much i had to confirm it was really about meth.

here's the proof:

The first song Third Eye Blind ever released on the radio, and probably the most interesting of their hits so far, was "Semi charmed Life." The song’s lyrical concerns are so unusual for pop radio. It is mostly about oral sex addiction, though all anybody ever seems to notice is the song’s catchy little "doo doo doo" chorus.

"It sounds bright and shiny for a reason…It’s supposed to sound attractive because the song is about the allure of a decadent lifestyle. But it is also a cautionary tale. There are real consequences to the choices we make. Doing crystal-meth will lift you up until you break." (Freedom du Lac)

The song and the lyrics take me back to the first half of senior year. Wonderful, wild, out of control are three words that pretty much sum up this period in my life. With troubles at home I let the "allure of a decadent lifestyle," as Jenkins puts it, grab hold of me. It was a way to escape the troubles at home, "I want something else to get me through this / semi-charmed life," and it was fun. It made me feel good, at least at first. The brilliant upbeat pop sound the song has represents this feeling perfectly. My closest friends were all experiencing troubles and we ended up in the same situation together. We found ourselves getting deeper and deeper in. "On the urge to feel alive / But now I’m struggling to survive." My parents were able to help me a little, but my best friend got sucked further into the whole scene. I can remember watching my friend in his downward spiral with drugs and sex. The song is about Jenkins and his ex-girlfriend, but their situation is representative. The two of us often felt stranded in this world we created too. I remember our long talks about the problems we were facing and how they often ended in getting drunk or in smoking a bowl. "Now you hold me, and we’re broken / still it’s all that I want to do."

Ice is just a nickname for crystal meth cause it looks like ice..

I dont think the song "you're as cold as ice" is refering to crystal meth..

Ice.. like frozen water is cold.. Theres a way people act called "being cold"

16 easy songs for drill and banjo-

travellin' salesman

daddy is a travelin’ salesman
he sure gets around
man loves to travel
got a woman in every town
he is a single parent
of nine daughters and two sons
now that’s what i call a family man
he loves each and every one

my mama is from new orleans
she worked the old quarter
when i was only two days old
my daddy bought me from her
for five hundred dollars
that’s all he had to pay
cheap at any price
is what he would say

‘cause daddy is a travelin’ salesman...

i got a sister who’s a judge
got a sister who’s in jail
one brother is dumb as a rock
the other is at yale
but daddy always told us all
“all you can do is try
and you can tell me anything
just don’t tell me no lie”

‘cause daddy is a travelin’ salesman..

now me i am a truck driver
so i like my crank
and if i die ‘fore i’m thirty five
i’ll have crystal meth to thank
when they come to bury me
my dad he won’t budge
he’ll say “a man can only
love his child
it ain’t for him to judge”

‘cause daddy is a travelin’ salesman...

Cold As Ice

"Youre as cold as ice,
youre willing to sacrifice, our love
You never take advice,
someday you'll pay the price, I know"

From watching some of my best friends fall into meth I know they never take advice...
and someday they'll pay the price, I know.

"Ive seen it before, it happens all the time
Youre closing the door, you leave the world behind
Youre digging for gold, you're throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday you'll pay"

I have seen it before.
It does happen all the time.
They close the door on a world that has a fortune in feelings... in search of something else...

for imagery's(and rhyming) sake lets call it gold.

"Youre as cold as ice,
youre willing to sacrifice, our love
You want paradise,
but someday you'll pay the price, I know"

Addiction forms a NEED that is willing to sacrific morality, loyalty, self respect, "our love"... all in search of "paradise."

But that kind of paradise doesnt last for long.
and they will pay the price.

I know.
