"Oh Lolita" as written by and Lief Liebmann....
Hey,
So what if this is my Louise Lane?
Someone defenseless I can save
I've got this tricky way of thinking
and it tricks me into thinking that I'm brave

The super part I'm used to
It's the man that gets me down

I guess
Tonight's the night that I suggest
That we add some copulation
To this awkward conversation
and undress

Oh, If I'm such a savior
Why am I sleeping by myself?

But you're so young
Oh Lolita
Give it up to me!

Hey
So what if this is my novacaine?
Some set of morals I can fake?
I feel it coming again

What good is being a martyr
If I cannot feel the pain?

    General CommentWell, I'm pretty sure 'Lolita' refers to Vladimir Nabokov's novel... I guess the rest of the song could relate to the rest of the novel (the protagonist has a pedophilic obsession with a 12 year old named Lolita) but it doesn't seem so. 'Some set of morals I can't fake' could refer to being unable to feel remorse for this unhealthy obsession, but other parts seem different. I don't believe the protagonist in the book sees Lolita as someone he is saving, and if I'm not mistaken there is no culmination of his love (copulation) but there are some sexual favors exchanged. Still, overall the tone of the song is more like regret, guilt, almost pleading (in my opinion) where as in the book, the protagonist experiences brief bouts of guilt but does not seem overly apologetic, so perhaps 'Oh Lolita' is just a reference and the rest of the song is about something different...I don't know.
