"10 Days Late" as written by Arion Salazar and Stephan Jenkins....
Click your heals
And feel you come for me
Care free, she's got something big to tell me
At the ocean
Talk back at the ocean
There's no simple way
To let you know
Funny how she always cried out daddy
I got a big surprise, she said
I'm in trouble now
and it cannot wait
She's ten days late
Boy, your life got complicated
Well I can't wait
To see this through
She's ten days late
Ten days late
Low ride bicycles go cruising by
I laugh
I don't even know why
Talk back at the ocean
Consequence and ozone
Catch a glow
Oh no, baby, oh no no
Give me a minute now
To figure out my state
Oh I know
She's ten days late
And I don't know
Where to take it
But it's still great
Knowing you
She's ten days late
Ten days late
Time has come for you to choose
Baby daddies keep your boo
Many blessings come to you
Baby daddy keep your boo
Your eyes look to me for what to do
I can't lie
I don't know
At the ocean
Talk back at the ocean
No one's laughing
Now what do I say
I walk away but, oh no
Don't go
At the ocean
Talk back at the ocean
Give me a minute now
To figure out my state
She's ten days late
And I'm never going to fade it
I guess I'll always be
Knowing you
Knowing you
Knowing you
Crawl on bedpost

    General CommentNo one's commented on the phrase "knowing you", think its just a sort of 'goodbye' to his friend(s) as he moves on into parenthood? i don't think hes talking to the girl or the baby to born because the way the song sounds it seems optimistic "Well I can't wait to see this through".

    anyhow i got my own fantasy to the song that incorporates the phrase, but whenever I'm listening to music I go on long tangents of winding fantasy so I don't trust my interpretation :D

    General Commentokay I couldn't contain myself. My interpretation is too fun. There's a passage in the bible that goes:

    The mighty man and the warrior
    The judge and the prophet
    The elder and the diviner
    The captain of 50 and the honorable man
    The counsellor and the expert artisan
    and the skillful enchanter
    -Isaiah 3

    I picture a boy growing up through these 'phases' of life, and its all because he thought he knocked up his girlfriend so he ran away. In the run he passes through these 'phases' and now that hes back hes discovered she's '10 days late'. Its perfect timing for his return and he'll grow up and become the father as a 'skillful enchanter'. I mean, isn't that the father we all dream we had? lol.

    Yea, unless Third Eye Blind happens to be a Christian (or perhaps Jewish?) rock band i know this isn't what they meant :P

    Anyhow its dollar drink days at mcDonalds and I had to get this out before I got my large Nestea.

    But seriously, who is he saying "knowing you" to, or is someone saying "knowing you" to him?

    General CommentOh that Stephan Jenkins. I admire this man, being able to through in a sexually perverted line into a song.
