Let me try to sober up
Throw some water on my face, only if it's cold enough
Confidently wiping my face with my shirt
Looking in the mirror like that ain't work, damn
“Let me try to sober up”
When Domo is baked, he becomes very self-concerned. Weed is sometimes said to make you distance yourself from others when you smoke alone, yet allow you to enjoy the trip with others while you toke often with friends only. (Like most infrequent smokers.)
“Throw some water on my face, only if it’s cold enough”
Domo decides to try and snap out of his ridiculous experience by splashing his face with cold water. However, only if the water is cold enough, as in he has to make sure it’s effective. This could also possibly say it’s “cold”, metaphorically speaking, dark and shallow like his mood.
“Confidently wiping my face with my shirt”
Domo is certain he would be able to get himself to calm down. I mean, he smokes so often that this should be normal, or at least controllable.
“Lookin' in the mirror like that ain’t work, damn”
Domo can look himself in the mirror and know that he didn’t really get out of the trip. He’s too high to lower himself to the level of everyday reality.
