Album: August And Everything AfterReleased: 1993
This song is about being on the road. The "perfect blue buildings" are hotels, and "beds in little rooms in buildings, with lives that are completely meaningless" refer to hotel rooms. "Get me a little oblivion" probably refers to getting drunk (or other) in order to try and cope with having to try and sleep in this sterile, impersonal, surreal environment.
Counting Crows lead singer Adam Duritz
wrote this song. He calls it one of the "agonizing" songs - along with "Round Here
" and "Ghost Train" - from the band's first album.
