A Perfect Circle Blue Music Video

A Perfect Circle music video for their song Blue from second studio album Thirteenth Step,   the video was featured on the bands video album aMotion released in 2004.

Thirteenth Step is a concept album which deals with addition and and recovery from addiction and the album title refers to the step that comes after something like the twelve step program when a former addict is left again to deal with the temptation and aftermath of their addiction alone.

Front man Maynard James Keenan made reference to this on the aMotion DVD, he explained – “The songs on Thirteenth Step for the most part are about the various processes of addiction, behavioral addictions, chemical addictions, and each song is kind of sung from a different perspective. I’ve a lot of friends who’ve gone through a lot of these situations. Some of the songs are sung from the perspective of the actual drug, from the perspective of someone who has realized that they have an issue or a problem, also from the perspective of a person who realizes that if they don’t do something they’re going to die, a song from the perspective of a person who is in denial about a loved one, dying right before their eyes. And in the case of The Outsider, it’s sung from the perspective of a person who doesn’t understand at all what their friend is going through, what their loved one is going through, and they think that it’s more like a sprained ankle; they can just kind of walk it off.”

A Perfect Circle Blue Lyrics

I didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want to know
Best to keep things in the shallow end
Cause I never quite learned how to swim

I just didn’t want to know
Didn’t want, didn’t want,
Didn’t want, didn’t want

Close my eyes just to look at you
Taken by the seamless vision
I close my eyes,
Ignore the smoke -x3

Call an optimist, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call an optimist, she’s turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

Because I don’t want to know
I didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want

Mistook the nods for an approval
Just ignore the smoke and smile

Call an optimist, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call an optimist, she’s turning blue
Such a perfect color for your eyes
Call an optimist, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

I don’t want to know
