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 Jenkins's observations of friends using crystal meth at a Primus concert. Some reviewers, however, felt that the hook was crafted in a manner that 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. And then probably underneath that, also the weight of coming to terms with the kind of agony that your life is always about to change and never be reliable. Jenkins was initially against the decision to release "Semi-Charmed Life" as the lead single from Third Eye Blind , as he did not believe that it was representative of the work as a whole.
God works by small and simple means to bring about His great and eternal purposes. As much as I want to share his brilliance and compassion with the world, I know that once he makes that connection with someone's sick parent, it is easily hrs less of our family time, and he won't even be treating them. Either way, if you have kids and you don't convert, she will divorce you and take your kids away from you and you will be shunned from her community. I'm not quite bitter but a tad fed up as have given up family, career, friends and started afresh x 2 again to be left alone at the other side of the planet with two young kids, moving house and setting up home with just 4 suitcases. But that parent-child relationship was bound to change anyways as you become an adult. They therefore have a high standard to work toward. How many chances will a girl have to find such a wonderful husband candidate.
