"Starstrukk" as written by Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman....
Nice legs, Daisy Dukes,
Makes a man go (whistles),
That's the way they all come through like (whistles),
Low-cut, see-through shirts that make ya (whistles),
That's the way she come through like (whistles),

Cause I just set them up,
Just set them up,
Just set them up (to knock them down),
Cause I just set them up,
Just set them up,
Just set them up,
To knock them down

I think I should know how to make love to something innocent
Without leaving my fingerprints out,
Now, l-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce,
How do I say I'm sorry 'cause the word is never gonna come out,
Now,
L-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce

Tight jeans, double D's makin' me go (whistles),
All the people on the street know (whistles),
Iced out, lit-up make the kids go (whistles),
All the people on the street know (whistles),

Cause I just set them up,
Just set them up,
Just set them up (to knock them down),
Cause I just set them up,
Just set them up,
Just set them up,
To knock them down

I think I should know how to make love to something innocent
Without leaving my fingerprints out,
Now, l-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce,
How do I say I'm sorry 'cause the word is never gonna come out,
Now,
L-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce

Push it baby, push it baby,
Out of control,
I got my gun cocked tight and I'm ready to blow,
Push it baby, push it baby,
Out of control,
This is the same old dance that you already know,
Push it baby, push it baby,
Out of control,
I got my gun cocked tight and I'm ready to blow,
Push it baby, push it baby,
Out of control,
This is the same old dance that you already know

I think I should know how to make love to something innocent
Without leaving my fingerprints out,
Now, l-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce

    I first thought it was a slut he was talking to and since she does it so much, it just becomes like a routine. But the guy, I guess is talkin' to himself reminding that he's a player and she's just a different version of all video games.

    Song MeaningEveryone is kind of hovering around what this song is about, with slashedupinsanity being closest to the real meaning. let me break it down section by section:

    "Nice legs, Daisy Dukes," etc. sets up the first section to show that the narrator, a guy, is the type of dude who looks to go to clubs and check out girls. He's obviously confident in himself and has no problem whistling at the girls, which some people would be afraid to do because they might retaliate.

    "'Cause I just set them up," etc. talks about how he has no trouble, most likely due to his confidence, in hooking up with these girls, probably have sex with them, all of that good stuff.

    "I think I should know how to make love to something innocent without leaving my fingerprints out," etc. shows a completely different side of this male protagonist. Up until this point, Nate and Sean's style of singing/rapping has been primarily very aggressive, reflecting the character's way with women. At this section, Sean makes his voice sound more wispy and timid. He is showing another side of the narrator, and revealing him to be a multi-dimensional character. Here, the narrator feels bad for mindlessly fucking all of the party girls, even though that's probably all they were looking for from a night out.
    "I think I should know how to make love to something innocent without leaving my fingerprints out" translates literally to "I think I should be able to have meaningful sex with someone and actually make an impression [like a fingerprint] upon them for more than a 1-night stand"
    "L-o-v-e's just another word I never learned to pronounce," obviously means he doesn't think he knows how to really LOVE someone, not just fuck them

    Then, it's back to the machismo, with the section beginning with "Tight jeans, double d's makin' me go (whistles)." For this section and the next refer back to the 1st 2 sections at the beginning of this meaning.

    Then again we go back to the regretful singing, he still wants to love and be able to feel a real connection with someone.

    The next section, beginning with "Push it baby, push it baby," is the most interesting one. This is obviously what he's saying either to himself or one of the girls he's having a 1-night stand with, but it has kind of a sad feeling to it. Like he's tired of this, tired of "pushing it," tired of the "same old dance."

    To solidify this, he repeats the main part of the chorus 1 last time, emphasizing that, while he's never learned how to love so far, he still wants to learn how to do so.

    I think the entire song on the whole in the context of our generation can be taken to mean a number of things. Obviously, Nate and Sean think that a lot of people in our generation have developed this feeling that is described in the song, only it's told exclusively from a male point of view. Despite this, it can be said the same about females. On one hand, our generation is much more free-minded about having sex than any other generation. This is great because it allows us to try out a number of sexual partners and decide who and what is best for us. On the other hand, this can lead to a lot of meaningless connections which, in turn, makes each of us feel lonelier. If all of the people in our generation only have 1-night stands, then what permanent connections are we performing? Obviously, we can have friends, but a romantic is much different than a friendly connection. Also, I realize there are a lot of people in relationships who have very meaningful sex and love each other and don't participate in the orgy of 1-night stands. However, I think this is kind of a cry that is trying to say that the meaningless 1-night stands make it harder to find that "soul mate," make it harder to go on actual dates, instead of just having fun, but meaningless, sex. Maybe we all hope for a little more than just fucking every hot chick or dude who comes along.

    General Comment This song is about this guy that likes to Bang hot girls, but does not want to have a real relationship with them, so he won't tell her he loves her. "without leaving my fingerprints" Means without forming any kind of actual bond besides having sex with her. He just sets them up to knock them down by making them think they are getting into a relationship when really it's just a one night stand.

    Love this song, 30!3 is Awesome!!

    General CommentJust set them up tonight (then down),

    i think that's wrong.
    im positive that its in fact "i just set them up to knock them down" it makes more sense.

    "set them up TONIGHT (them down)" makes no sense at all. its not even english.
    lmaooo.

    but anyway, not much explanation needed for this song.
    love it though.
