Gallant – Third Eye Blind. Lyrics

Third Eye Blind. Lyrics – Gallant

Remember when this captain lost control (Yeah)
Between the promised land and desert road (Yeah)
I didn’t know my moral compass was so broken (Yeah)
‘Til the circles in the gravel let me know (Yeah)
And my mind was playin’ tricks on us the most
Could’ve sworn I built a castle, you were right, it was a moat
That drivel about “options or I’m better off alone”
Yeah that was just a white lie all along
My third eye was telling me

That I-I-I-I-I-I-I choose you
Though I-I-I-I-I-I-I could never bring myself to say I do (Oh)
I-I-I-I-I-I-I choose you
I’ve been doggin’ for a minute
Now I’m begging for forgiveness, oh

Not a secret all the other humans know (Yeah)
The kind of havoc you can wreak when the unknown (Yeah)
Hits a cerebellum unequipped to cope (Yeah)
You get an ego with a lit fuse
And a lukewarm blooded recluse
Who’s sure to misinterpret everything
‘Til the kamikaze mission doesn’t seem insane
Shouldn’t take disaster to decide
When the truth is in the bloodstream
Even through the morphine, I can tell

That I-I-I-I-I-I-I choose you (Choose, you, baby)
Though I-I-I-I-I-I-I could never bring myself to say I do (Never bring myself to say)
I-I-I-I-I-I-I choose you (Choose you)
I’ve been doggin’ for a minute
Now I’m begging for forgiveness, oh

Yeah
So many words that I could use to say this
‘Cause I’ve been lookin’ forward to learning you, oh-woah (Woah)
Believe it’s not your fault, baby (Fault, baby)
Me and love, we’ve been off, baby (Off, baby)
But when it’s all said and done (Yeah, yeah, straight up)
You’ll be painted to the walls, baby (Yeah)
‘Cause I-I-I-I choose you

I-I-I-I-I-I-I (Baby) choose you (I choose you, babe)
Though I-I-I-I-I-I-I could never bring myself to say I do (Oh, never bring myself to say, never can)
I-I-I-I-I-I-I choose you (Choose you, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’ve been doggin’ for a minute (Oh-oh)
Now I’m begging for forgiveness, oh (Yeah)

Stop, think about it
Really think about it
Look before you leap
There’s no trampoline
Stop, think about it (Think about it)
Really think about it
Hanging on the edge
At thirty thousand feet (Oh)
Baby, stop, think about it
Really think about it
Doesn’t honesty
Justify the means?
Stop, think about it (Yeah)
Really think about it
Even on the edge
At thirty thousand feet
You know I—
