"Ricochet" as written by Jeremy Dawson, Chad Petree and Sissley N Treasure....
Welcome back to
Where I'm gonna have you
Shell shock, fall back
Anyone I see through.
Watch your head spin
Like a mesocyclone
Bouncing off the walls
Now there's nowhere to run

Like a bullet, meant to be shot
You're the target
Dead on the spot
When I focus, I never miss
It starts with a kiss

[Chorus: x2]
She ricochets
And you don't notice.
She's in your head
And you just don't notice.

Let the sweat fall
Find me in the back stall
Let it snow down
Now we're gonna deck halls
I hit the bulls eye
Making all the boys cry
I hit the main line
Breaking through the night sky

Like a bullet, meant to be shot
You're the target
Dead on the spot
When I focus, I never miss
It starts with a kiss

[Chorus]

    General CommentShe's ruthless. She plays the boys seduces them then leaves them clueless, lost and maybe heartbroken sometimes. Thats what she does! =D

    General Commentkind of sounds like a girl tempting a guy to get into a relationship but she only wants fun... yea, not really sure. different style for stg, im still undecided about their new lead.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy dening he likes this girl and like she's in ur head. explains that part
    i really like this song it's catchy. i don't think the girl's playing with him.
    [like a bullet
    meant to be shot
    you're the target]
    but i think she likes him, and no matter what she's gonna get him.
    i just made this to post my opinion haha =]

    General CommentRebound relationships? Ricocheting from one guy to the next seems a plausible meaning to me. I mean, isn't one of the common themes of the Shiny's music that of heartless bitches using or toying with guys. Basically the "I'm too good for you" idea followed by the "you're a skank" line of thought. It's really pretty biting stuff, I think

    General Commenti heard this song on top 40 radio & it def caught my attention. this song sounds to me like a girl who goes to the clubs & does coke (she mentions letting it snow down in the stalls aka bathrooms before she's ready to deck the halls) & picks up men. actually it almost sounds like she is comparing her way of seduction to the addictive properties of a drug... like saying she's creeping up in your head/hitting the mainline etc. the song has that vibe to it imo. anyway, it's clear that she means to encircle & destroy... & her target is obvs the boys.

    General CommentI am that much better for now knowing the word "mesocyclone"...and I suspect that I'll be better yet (or at least a bit giddier) when I pick up the new album on Election Day. This should be fun. STG rule.

    General Commentthe video is up (not on youtube yet, just google it) .........weird. apparently the cd is supposed to be about things 'that make you shudder' or make you uncomfortable. (quote from the lead guitarist) odd. new direction for stg thats for sure.


    the meaning?
    okay, my take. sounds like shes not completely real in wanting the relationship with the guy but shes good got an addicting/appealing way of tempting the guy. but "shes in your head" and you cant *get away* from her, so to speak.
    "let the sweat fall, find me in the back stall. let it snow down..." sounds like using coke in a bathroom to kind of relieve himself about thinking about getting involved with her. he wants it, but knows in his mind shes a fake. so he uses coke so he can do things without regret (for the time being...)

    General Commentthis song is not good. it feels contrived and unfinished, or at least the chorus feels like it shouldnt be a chorus. the verse sounds very stg. the new singer can def pull off that attitude from the last chick, but the chorus needs to change
