Semen tastes like gunmetal she said smiling.
The arms of boys drowning in fire reaching for the rungs of my rib cage.
These pills I take in the witching hour.
I imagine I am swallowing you.

    General CommentMaybe this is from the point of the cheerleader. All these guys want her and she keeps playing them, like most girls do. But in all reality she hates her life, takes pills for relief and dies. This is a long shot and is most definetly wrong. Im tired.

    General CommentI pretty much see this song as this message:
    Through this act of lust, I'm stealing your soul.

    General Commenti see this as the sterotypical evil mean bitchy hot chick
    "Semen tastes like gunmetal she said smiling,"
    shes a slut
    "the arms of boys drowning in fire reaching for the rungs of my rib cage."
    she is an obvious object of lust
    "These pills I take in the witching hour.
    I imagine I am swallowing you. "
    and from this i think
    she finds the lifestyle unsatisfying

    General CommentGodsMAck4LiFe= Obvious troll is obvious


    This song is about a young ridiculously hot whore, who lives the "life", but is really living a unsatisfying lie.

    Song MeaningThis is what I was thinking:
    There's this cheerleader/beautiful girl and a lot of guys want her. They are suffering ("drowning in fire") because they can't have her, and she likes it ("semen tastes like gunmetal").
    He (the storyteller) also is lusting after the girl and abuses substances ("the pills I take" / "swallowing you") to try and get over it when he's feeling depressed (in "the witching hour").

    I'm not totally sure about the "reaching for the rungs of my ribcage" bit - maybe he knew some of her lovers?

    Maybe I'm trying to relate this to my own experiences too much, but that's just what I took from it.

    General CommentI believe your all wrong i know this song is about being in the in crowd, and a girl who overcomes adversity to make the varsity cheering squad. This song is awful and a SELLOUT, Sully would write the soundtrack to Scorpion King 2 and than put on cheering ooutfit and pee all over Pig Destroyer.
