It's 3 o'clock,
And we ask ourselves,
"Where are we now?"
It seems we've wondered out of bounds again!
(Over and over, we ask ourselves why we don't utilize
Things that are stored
Deep inside of our brains!)

I'm on my own and I can't see straight!
Am I so stoned that I can't see straight?
Man, I've got to find my way back home,
But I'm too deep inside
It's 4 o'clock,
And we ask ourselves,
"Where did I go wrong?

We passed my house at least an hour ago!"
Over and over, we ask ourselves why
Don't we utilize things
That are stored deep inside of our brains!
I'm on my own and I can't see straight?
Am I sooo stoned that I can't see straight?

It's 5 o'clock,
And we tell ourselves,
"We need to get home! The sun is creeping overhead again!"
I'm way too deep inside to go home,
I've got to get sane!

    General Comment:The consensus seems to be this is just about being stoned off one's ass, but whether, Boyd intended it or not, I see deeper meaning. It's about being to intoxicated, not necessarily from drugs, You see it in his later lyrics about being blinded by society and forced to accept what everyone else thinks. This song is about being steeped so low into what's popular that you can't even find yourself or what you stand for, no matter how hard you try. Then again. the song might just be about drugs, but I think Incubus is onto something more than they might have intended originally.

    Forgeting the lyrics, I just love the jazz/rock feel of this song, particularly with that guitar riff at the end.

    General Comment:The story behind this song is that when Incubus were younger, they'd go up in the hills outside Calabasas and smoke weed. They once got very stoned and couldn't find their way back home! Tee, hee! Although it isn't written here, my favourite part of the song is when Brandon says :"I know exactly where we are! Where the fuck are we!?" That is mine and my friend's favourite phrase!
