Glass Animals – Gooey lyrics

Alright, come close
Let me show you everything I know
The jungle slang
Spinning around my head and I stare.
While my naked fool
Fresh out of an icky gooey womb.
A woozy youth
Dopes up on a silky smooth perfume.

Right my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
Wanna sip this smooth air, kick it in the sand?
I'd say I told you so, but you just gonna cry,
You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes.

My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work.
Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs.
I can't take this place, I can't take this place.
I just wanna go where I can get some space.

Truth be told,
I've been here, I've done this all before.
I take your gloom,
I cut it up and puff it into plumes,

Right my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
Wanna sip this smooth air, kick it in the sand?
I'd say I told you so, but you just gonna cry,
You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes.

My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work.
Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs.
I can't take this place, I can't take this place.
I just wanna go where I can get some space.

Hold my hand, flow back to the summer time.
Tangled in the willows, now our tongues are tied.
How can I believe you, how can I be nice?
Tripping around the tree stumps in your summer smile.

Right my little pooh bear, wanna take a chance?
Wanna sip this smooth air, kick it in the sand?
I'd say I told you so but you just gonna cry,
You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes.

My, my simple sir, this ain't gonna work.
Mind my wicked words and tipsy topsy slurs.
I can't take this place, I can't take this place.
I just wanna go where I can get some space.

    The singer talks about getting high on different forms of hallucinogenics. She talks first about dope, and then it sounds as though she, and the partner she's getting high with, get into harder forms of the stuff. The singer says she's done this far too many times and that her partner, as he gets into the stronger drugs, seems to be unable to handle it as he becomes more upset. The singer tries to help him through it to have a better 'ride' during his hallucinogenics, but the more she tries to help him the more she realizes that she just wants to ride her own high by herself. Despite this, starting with the dope and going for stronger drugs, each time she says she wants to get away and find her own place, she still goes for stronger drugs and still wants to get away from it all. The singer is losing trust in herself and in her partner the more the pair get sucked into their drugged induced fantasy, and the more they dig deeper into the rabbit hole, the more she finds herself getting stuck. The singer realizes that the more she indulges in her drugs, the more she can escape reality.

    Wow, reading WAY too much into it. This is about as deep as it is - frontman Dave Bayley told The Quietus the story of the song: "'Gooey' started off as a beat I'd made for a hip hop artist," he said. "I was just going through some beats I had made for someone, choosing which to send off, and I got to this one and listened to it a couple times. At that point it was just the bass line, drums, percussion, and little glock riff. All of a sudden those chords popped into my head and I got the piano out and started tinkering and then the, 'Right, my little Pooh Bear' vocal line popped into my head, and then the rest. I ended up making this eight-minute groove track. Then I showed it to the guys and we took it to the studio where we shaved off a few minutes."
