"Her Father And Her" as written by and Adam Green....
Father owned the dating bar so mother ran the store
We all lived there together with the army at the door
No one to do my laundry or to tell me that they're sure
But there really is no me and there's no army at the door

I hustle my way to your bedside
I ride on your body like a cab ride
I carry refreshments to the good guys
I made the good guys some home fries

Pardon me anyone where is the nearest shore
We're all in this together and the police are at the door
Someone do my laundry or smash through the floor
To the tropical vacation buried underneath the store

And I was your favorite bullfighter
Whose looks were new to your eyes
And I fell apart in that bullfight
Where the dress was the sky to your thighs

She said that she had an hour
Her father he was in the shower
And she took me to her little tower
And she showed me her little flower

And just when I thought it was safe to put down my pen
She said maybe I will let you fall in love with me again
Maybe I will let you fall for loving me again
Then she showed me her badge and I think she said then

That I don't have the heart to tell you not to come
And everyone has hands just to use someone
And it makes me feel just like old gum
To ride a fake horse into town
To ride a lame horse into town
To ride a dead horse into town
To ride your big fucking fake fucking lame fucking dead horse into town

    General CommentIm going to break it down to my opinion on what it means in "{}". You may think differently but I really think its about a man being caught by the cops when he had sex with a undercover cop posing as a prostitute.
    Father owned the dating bar so mother ran the store [Father cheating and a drunk while the mother took care of everything]
    We all lived there together with the army at the door { there was a constant war going on , probably with the mother and father fighting]
    No one to do my laundry or to tell me that they're sure [No one to help him, alone ]
    But there really is no me and there's no army at the door [Denying existent - trying to get by ]

    I hustle my way to your bedside
    I ride on your body like a cab ride [He paid for sex]
    carry refreshments to the good guys { he is a waiter/cook at a restaurant. I feel like he doesn't feel like a decent person cause he is comparing himself to these men, they are the "good guys".]
    I made the good guys some home fries

    We're all in this together and the police are at the the door [ Wants to runaway - feeling like he will get caught. ]
    Someone do my laundry or smash me through the floor
    To the tropical vacation buried underneath the store

    And I was your favorite bullfighter {bullfighter are very showy and graceful. and if they when they kill the bull ]
    Whose looks were new to your eyes [caught her eye - she actually liked him ]
    And i fell apart in that bullfight
    Where the dress was the sky to your thighs

    She said that she had an hour [sex duh]
    Her father he was in the shower
    And she took me to her little tower
    And she showed me her little flower

    And just when i thought it was safe to put down my pen [writing a check]
    She said maybe i will let you fall in love with me again [She had feelings for him, even though she had to do her job]
    Maybe i will let you fall for loving me again
    Then she showed me her badge and i think she said then [ actually a cop]

    That i don't have the heart to tell you not to come
    And everyone has hands just to use someone [justifying having sex with him]
    And it makes me feel just like old gum [ He feels like shit and was tricked ]
    To ride a fake horse into town
    To ride a lame horse into town
    To ride a dead horse into town
    To ride your big f*cking fake f*cking lame f*cking dead horse into town
