"Flicking Your Switch" as written by and Daniel Hunt....
Saw your visa card, and took a trip downtown
I don't really care that there's people around

9-2-3, 8-1-6
Is the sound of that flicking your switch
8-1-5, 9-1-4
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?

I'm so happy that your coming out to play
Now I'm hungry one cocaine decision away

3-6-9, 2-4-8
Is the sound of them closing your gate
8-1-5, 9-1-4
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?

It's the time to head beyond the city lights
No I don't recall there being warning signs

9-2-3, 8-1-6
Is the sound of that flicking your switch
8-1-5, 9-3-4
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?
8-1-5, 9-3-4
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?

    General CommentI can definitely see the S&M aspect.

    To me, though, this song seems about a partner who stole his/her partner's credit card because the other person was doing something like cheating on them, or someting else devastating. So to get back, s/he stole the card. "Flicking your switch" seems like an alternative phrase to "Pushing your buttons". And the part abot cocaine, to me it's almost like that person was so devastated that they turned to drugs.

    I wouldn't be surprised if I'm entirely wrong though.

    General CommentFantastic. Not only is it incredibly catchy, but it is also somewhat frightful and chilling. One of their best songs for sure.

    General CommentThis is a song about the S&M scene. Flicking your switch refers to something that some dommes to their subs, where they take their money and generally use and abuse them or, in mild cases, just strive to piss them off/ embaress them. Then they gauge their pet's reaction, and use it to control them. This domme is controling her pet with use of numbers, so that her pet functions like a robot for her (and I must add that the voice on the latter part takes on an authoritative edge, very sexy ^^)
    Erm, that is all.
    CHOW! And don't touch the sushi.

    XOXOXO,

    General CommentAre you sure? I thought it was just about taking someone's credit card and going on a shopping spree.

    General CommentI'm not sure about the whole S&M scene thing. I think this song is about a girl merely having a bit of fun with a boy, possibly at his own expense.

    General CommentHmm, I disagree about the D&s aspect of the song, though it could definitely apply. I think this song is more about using someone under the guise of being their friend or lover.

    General CommentMaybe it's not S&M but there is a sexual undertone to this song I think. "flicking the switch" is slang for, uh, a girl doing what girls do best...
