i think losing a whole year starts off with his saying a few words of
the past, or beginning of the relationship,i remember u and me would
spend the whole goddamned day in bed, then he moves on to say her dad
left her with money and stuff but no love, and everything she touched
was fake, like she didnt want to get dirty, b/c of her greed, now u
wanna try a life of sin, her dad left her so shes rebelling,shes doesnt
hear what he says when he lets out his emotions she just agrees but
never takes it to heart, she finds her self depressed and just in it for
the money. he ends up saying, this drama is a bore, their whole
relationship was a drama, tha went nowhere and he feels he lost a whole
year with this rich, depressed weirdo.
I love this song. I think it is about Stephan truly loving someone,
while being high, then being devisated when that person he loved leaves
because she doesn't want to be high anymore. It shakes up his whole
reality for a bit.
Well basically I have no theory...but from the man himself Stephan...he
says the song is about being pissed off at the end of a relationship. In
addition, the video is a metaphor for the song, as it shows a car crash
in slow motion, representing the whole year lost. For evidence on this,
check out muchmusic.com (the canadian version of mtv, although it is
nothing like mtv) and click on artists->third eye blind->interview icon
and see for yourselves.
I think it's about being whacked out on meth you and the one you love.
when you are, you never sleep and time runs together and you lose track of it. I lost lost three years to meth. Also I was never privy to the thinking of an addict. Yet I was involved with one and when I realized what the smile on his face meant. I wanted to kill him because I was dooped, tricked and fooled because my own love blinded me.
More simply it could be about wasting time with someone no good. Time you invested wholeheartedly and seriously with a nothing but a god damned drone.
My theory is it's a song about a girl who turned out to be a fake in a
relationship. She got obsessed with being cool and turned into a girl that
was unreachable. The relationship lasted a year but none of it meant
anything so it was a waste of time, thus "Losing a whole year." She also
identifies herself with her money, "Your voice sounds lke money and your
face is cute."
When you spend a year(s) going after one girl, and u find out shes no the
one. You just lost a whole year
After the millions of times I've listened to this song, I did not get the
idea, at all, that it had anything to do with meth. Under Evidence, Stephan
said this is about "a rich girl from Bernal Heights." This is fairly
obvious in the song. I just wanted to say that I think that this has only
to do with a break up with this rich girl who used him. Also (obviously) it
was a year long relationship- a whole year he lost to basically a fake
It's kind of interesting how many of Stephan's songs are about break-ups,
like How's It Gonna Be...

I think Stephan is a genius when it comes to writing a lyrics for his songs.
He either tries to tell a story or is just writing about an experience. In
Losing a Whole Year, I believe he is trying to tell a story. Whether it is
personal or not I'm not sure. I think he is telling a story about a rich,
daddy's girl who has everything, but one day decides to start a rebellion
chain. If this story relates to Stephan, she makes him feel like he's being
used and he isn't listened to because she's caught up in herself. I also
think it talks about her turning to drugs and fading away. He's sick of her
hiding behind her real personality and how she doesn't act like herself. The
title fits in because he's losing a whole year because he's unable to build
on this relationship because she's lost in her own world and their
relationship is now gone. He's lost this whole year he's dedicated himself

What a daring, ballsy song to debut with. The first song on the album. I
believe thi is an introduction that sets the tone for the whole disc. It's
just about getting fucked up and fucked over for a year and he just comes to
the realization that of his mishaps with his addiction to narcotics! and
this girl he come close to. Narcolepsy is about the central character of the
story being told, losing control of his perception of the worl. His life has
slowly dwindled down, where fun is now boring and he doesn't phsically have
narcolepsy, he just blocks out the world. ANd the worst just keeps coming
and the paper bag tears even more, driving him closer to insanity. Semi
Charmed life explains that low he has expeienced. To me the cd is consistent
in story telling and doesn't end melodramatically. I believe it is a true
