I'm mixing up a bunch of magic stuff
A magic mushroom cloud of care
A potion that will rock the boat will rock
Make a bomb of love and blow it up

I did it
Do you think I've gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
It was me right or wrong
I did it Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to 
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didn't know it felt so right inside
I didn't know at all
Open up the curtains I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for us all

It's a nickel or a dime for what I've done
The truth is that I don't really care
For such a lovely crime I'll do the time
You better lock me up I'll do it again

I did it
Do you think I've gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
It was me right or wrong
I did it 
Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to 
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didn't know it felt so right inside
I didn't know at all
Open up the curtains I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for the buzz

All you people are the skewers of our dreams
Like the cat that collared me
Oh what I gotta say to you got love don't
Turn it down
Turn it loud
Let it build
We got a long way to go
But you gotta start somewhere
Go door to door spread the love you got
You got the love
You get what you want
Does it matter where you get it from
I for one
Don't turn my cheek for anyone
Unturn your cheek to give your love
Love to grow

I did it
Do you think I've gone too far
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it

Was me right or wrong
I did it
Yeah
I did it
I told you I told you I told you I told 
I did it
Guilty as charged
I did it
I told you I told you I told you I 
I did it
Yeah

I never did a single thing that did a single thing to
Change the ugly ways of the world
I didn't know it felt so right inside
I didn't know at all
Open up the curtain I heard sirens there the lights flash and crawl
I did it justice I just did it for us all

Dave Matthews Band

Dave Matthews Band, abbreviated DMB, is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S. in 1991. The group's lyrical themes focus on topics ranging from God, love, sex, the enjoyment and appreciation of life, to ending racism, and political and anti-war statements. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. Boyd Tinsley was added to the band as a violinist soon after the band was formed. Moore died suddenly in August 2008 due to complications from injuries sustained in an ATV accident. Grammy Award-winner Jeff Coffin, of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, has since filled Moore's spot as the band's saxophonist. Rasha… more »
