"Five Little Rooms" as written by Justin Andrew Harris, Daniel Frederic Seim and Brent Knopf....
This is a play that takes place in a freezer
Count your blessings, it's far removed
From your group of peers
From your circle

Five little rooms, one for each of my husbands
One for each of my bridegrooms,
And their prostitutes
And their children

Take a breath of the scenery, all this
Someday could be yours
Cross your heart, click your heels and get the
Hell away

All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours

Hung on a pole right next to a McDonald's
In a suburban shopping mall
At half mast again
Between shootings

All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday
All this could be yours, someday

    General CommentIt's criticizing the American Dream. In reality, the American Dream is more of a nightmare. "All this could be yours someday" seems to have a sarcastic undertone to it.

    General Commentjust two minor corrections in the lyrics:

    "This is a play that takes place in a freezer"

    "Hung on a pole right next to a McDonalds"

    General CommentI'm just going to go out on a limb and say that the line "All this could be yours someday" is a threat. Maybe it relates to the "play in a freezer" we are told to "get the hell away" from. Thoughts?

    My InterpretationI got the feeling that it's about the life a lot of people strive for. A quaint little house with a few rooms not far from the shopping mall. But that life often ends up being a little dreary and depressing because you're exposed to too much? I don't know, always what I got out of it.

    General CommentA wrong interpretation it may be, but this song's references to spacious freezers and little rooms for spouses makes me think of the story of Bluebeard, in which the titular character has a secret pantry to store his many wives' corpses. Except, of course, that the Bluebeard in this song doesn't appear to have actually been married to his "husbands" at all. What with their bodies being preserved alongside those of their sexual partners. And their children.
