"Rill Rill" as written by and Sydney Krauss Derek Miller....
Have a heart, have a heart, have a heart
Sixteen six six six like the pentagon
We are the river flow
And you can never know
You're just a weatherman
We make the wind blow

Keep thinking about every straight face yes
Wonder what your boyfriend thinks about your braces
What about them
I'm all about them
Six such straight As
Cut em in the bathroom

So this is it then?
You're here to win friends
Click click saddle up see you on the moon then
And all our old friends
Pick up their phones then
Ring ring call them up
Tell them about the new trends

Have a heart, have a heart, have a heart
Sixteen six six six and we fell apart
We form a tarot pack
And I'm aware of that
But we could fist fight drunk like the parent trap

Keep thinking about every straight face yes
Wonder what your boyfriend thinks about your braces
We never blink see
And you can see me
We fell asleep in the middle of the fury

So this is it then?
You're here to win friends
Click click saddle up see you on the moon then
And all our old friends
Pick up their phones then
Ring ring call them up
Tell them about the new trends

So this is it then?
You're here to win friends
Click click saddle up see you on the moon then
And all our old friends
Pick up their phones then
Ring ring call them up
Tell them about the new trends

Have a heart, have a heart, have a heart
Sixteen six six six like the pentagon
We are the river flow
And you can never know
You're just a weatherman
We make the wind blow

Keep thinking about every straight face yes
Wonder what your boyfriend thinks about your braces
What about them
I'm all about them
Six such straight As
Cut em in the bathroom

So this is it then?
You're here to win friends
Click click saddle up see you on the moon then
And all our old friends
Pick up their phones then
Ring ring call them up
Tell them about the new trends

So this is it then?
You're here to win friends
Click click saddle up see you on the moon then
And all our old friends
Pick up their phones then
Ring ring call them up
Tell them about the new trends

    Song MeaningI think this song is about plaing cards/gambling.

    "Have a heart" (hearts on cards)

    Keep thinking about every straight face (Poker face)
    Six sets straight (A straight in poker)
    ace (Ace card)
    Cut 'em in the bathroom (Cut cards)

    You're here to win, friend (Win at what? Cards)
    Click, click settle up (settle up after losing)

    General CommentIf this isn't the album of the year, it's the album of the summer at the very least. I didn't think they'd be able to keep the magic from the demo intact, but it's still fuckamazing!!

    Lyric CorrectionThe line after 'what about them, I'm all about them' is clearly 'six sets straight, ace' as in tennis.

    General CommentI think its not only about "teen troubles", but also teen drug use, and in particular cocaine. For me anyway, this is expressed as (presumably) 2 good friends trying cocaine in the school bathroom. The "Six sets straight, ace Cut 'em in the bathroom" (possibly six straight lines, albeit a lot of coke, but who are we to judge?).Also what ties into this theory is "Click, click saddle up see you on the moon then" which is easily symbolism for getting high; since the phrasing here is directed to someone else, we can make the assumption about at least 2 participants in total.

    An alternate (and personally imo, less likely) option is a suicide pact.

    General CommentACCORDING TO THE OFFICIAL SLEIGH BELLS TWITTER,

    ""Rill Rill" chorus lyric is usually misinterpreted as "click click saddle up" when in fact it's "click click settle up"..."
    "...which is a gun being cocked in the face and a debt to be paid."

    General CommentIt's still kind of a love song. Or at least a feel good song. If a hipster chick from Brooklyn is cutting anything in the bathroom it's a line of coke. Good song.
