"Keep Yourself Warm" as written by and Grant David Hutchison Scott John Hutchison....
My hole, I'll get my hole, I'll get my hole
Get my hole, get my hole and I'll find out more
It's a choo choo train, a rocket launch
If we have a hormone race
I'm bound to finish first

Can you see in the dark?
Can you see the look on your face?
The flashing white light's been turned off
You don't know who's in your bed

It takes more than fucking someone
You don't know to keep warm
Did you really think that a fuck at half speed
You'll find your love in a hole?

Oh, you won't find love in a
Won't find love in a hole
It takes more than fucking someone
To keep yourself warm

I'm drunk, I'm drunk
And you're probably on pills
If we've both got the same diseases
It's irrelevant, girl

And the room fills with steam
Oh, evaporates, disappears
My point of entry is the same way
That I leave

Can you see in the dark?
Can you see the look on your face?
The flashing white light's been turned off
You don't know who's in your bed

It takes more than fucking someone
You don't know to keep warm
Did you really think that a fuck at half speed
You'll find your love in a hole?

But, you won't find love in a
Won't find love in a hole
It takes more than fucking someone
To keep yourself warm

You won't find love in a
Won't find love in a hole
It takes more than fucking someone
To keep yourself

See in the dark
Can you see the look in your face?
The flashing white light's been turned off
You don't know who's in your bed

It takes more than fucking someone
You don't know to keep warm
Did you really think that a fuck at half speed
You'll find your love in a hole?

    General Commentit is about shallow sex. it's about a stupid guy/girl having sex with random strangers, trying to find love and affection in it all but they are dead lost and dead wrong. they're hoping they'll feel peace and contentment when having sex with these strangers, but they won't because true love is waayyyy more than that.

    "Can you see in the dark?"
    do they even know who they're having sex with?

    "You don't know know who's in your bed."
    they don't. she just wants the sex.

    "Do you really think that for a house-beat you'll find your love in a hole?"
    the singer is obviously disappointed here. he's like 'seriously? are you that stupid to believe all your problems will go away and/or you can finally find love by just having random sex with random people?"

    "You won't find love in a, won't find love in a hole."
    you won't find love out of nowhere. it doesn't come easily. and it doesn't come in these dirty and shallow of situations.

    it's a harsh song but i love it. it's truth.

    General CommentI like the fact that they use the word "fucking" instead of "making love" or "having sex." I think the vulgarity of it adds to the fact that the song is about shallow sex. Powerful.

    My InterpretationI think this song is as much about himself (yourself) as the other person. Its weird to say this, but I got the impression that its him talking to himself, chiding himself for his ways.

    General Comment"Do really think that for a house-beat you'll find your love in a hole"

    I think this is a clever switch of words - instead of 'in a heart-beat' he has continued to portray the essence of the nightclub referenced several times in the song: house-beat, as in the beat of house/techno music. This fits in with the imagery of flashing white lights and steam

    General CommentFor me this song is about casual sex or about someone looking for love in one night stands finding them in night clubs.....Lots of night club references. Steam, Flashing White lights. Pills.

    "My hole" - Scottish slang for sex. "I'm gonna get ma hole aff that lassie the night"

    "The flashing white light's been turned off,
    You don't know know who's in your bed." - For me this is the white strobe light typical of a night club.

    General CommentI love this song! It's so good. It's really about a guy and a girl having sex... obviously.
    But there's more to feeling whole, to feeling love than just fucking someone random.
    It's truly great. You'll get it if you just listen to the lyrics! :)

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl avoiding going on a relationship him, with whom she's actually in love, because she is afraid of what she may find, afraid of getting hurt or afraid of making a mistake. you know. and she'd rather "fuck someone".

    that's why he sings "you won't find love in a hole". a hole is something empty, that is to say, something useless, something that won't take her anywhere.

    what i can't see is whether he's doing the same or not. when he says "my hole, i'll get my hole, i'll get my hole" he probably means he's waiting for her. but then when he says "i'm drunk, i'm drunk and you're probably on pills. if we've both got the same diseases... it's irrelevant, girl" he's probably admiting they're both doing the same, going to bed with different people instead of facing they're in love and giving themselves a chance.

    General CommentI think the whole song is a reference to the casual sex culture.

    'My hole' refers to having sex with someone (it's a Scottish slang term)
    and when he says 'You won't find love in a hole' it basically means you won't find love sleeping around.

    I think that the 'Pills' reference is to do with drugs, probably E .

    Great song :D

    General Commenti'm definitely not sure about some of the lyrics here so if anyone gets the right ones just let me know.

    --

    i love this song, especially the bit where they just shout SEEEEEEEEE, gets me everytime.
    it's nice, a really obvious message it seems, about the hollowness of casual sex.

    General Commenti think it's
    "it's a choo-choo train"....matches the innuendo of "a rocket launch"

    also
    "if we both GOT the same diseases
    it's IRRELEVANT, girl"
