"Choking The Cherry" as written by and Danielewski/conner....
I can see it out my window
That stupid sunshine
And those trees
A voice my head
It cuts me down in
I try to shut it up but I can't let it go (oh!)

It sounds a lot like you do
Always saying shit I know it's not true
It sucks me in
It spits me out
I try to shut it up 'cause I must let it go

[Chorus]
Hey man don't you know you're choking the cherry
Hey man don't you know me better than that
Sucking me in
Spitting me out
One day I may just leave you far behind me

I can hear it in the hallway
It's out there laughing with its friends
It's a voice in my head
It cuts me down in
I try to shut it up 'cause I must let it go (oh!)

It looks a lot like you do
It looks like--uh--I don't want to say it
It sucks me in
It spit it out
I try to shut it up 'cause I must let it go

[Chorus]

Woah man don't you know you're choking the cherry
I'm frustrated why don't you get off my back
Hey man don't you know you're the choking the cherry
Hey man you know I deserve better than that
One day I may just leave you far behind me

Hey man don't you know you're choking the cherry
Hey man don't you know me better than that
Hey man don't you know you're choking the cherry
Hey man don't you know me better than that
Hey man

    General Commenti don't think its about sex. i think its about a breakup that she's trying to get over but she thinks she wants to go back.

    "it sucks me in, it spits me out"
    she's playing with the thought in her head about getting
    sucked into the love, then being rejected.

    or something like that, i can't quite translate thoughts in my head into words very well.

    General CommentI thought it was about that little voice in your head that makes you feel frustrated, self-conscious and paranoid.

    "I can hear it in the hallway. It's out there laughing with its friends."

    General CommentYeah, I agree more with what troiaj said, its about self-doubt, not sex.

    General CommentThis song has me more confused than most. My best guess is that it is about sexual frustration or more specifically her frustration and ambivalance about losing her virginity to some specific guy. I say this in the context of the song "not a virgin anymore" and some interview material that indicates she lost her virginity later than most. Still this idea doesn't quite fit with all the lyrics.
