Oh I'll bet I know what you like
At least think I know what you might
I'm not the most cocksure guy
But I get all bold with every smile

So please, show me your teeth, I'll show mine
I sure hope our P's and Q's don't mind
Cause I've been alone quite some time
And I've got to scratch this itch of mine
And I think I know what you know
I'm not that smooth but I'm not blind

The hours pass us by as gin slips slowly
Past our tingling spines, cheeks warm and glowing
I'm a social mess but not yet slurring
The words that come to rest upon my luring tongue

Oh I'll bet I know what you like
At least think I know what you might
I'm not the most cocksure guy
But I still sure fight the good hard fight
Try as I may, try I might
I'll ever scratch this itch of mine
We've all got our vices, this one's mine
So I might not smoke but I get high

Underneath this fleshy robe lies a beast with no control
I fed it once look how it's grown
Oh my god, bring me peace from this wolf covered in fleece
I can't shake loose from its teeth
Oh my god, set me free
I have no ability to cut my leash and walk away

With every passing night my conscience lessens
And seems to pacify these guilt filled sessions
Now I'm a social pest but not yet willing
To put my laws to rest till I'm done filling these holes

I'll bet I know what you like
At least think I know what you might
And I'm not the most cocksure man (?)
I take what I get and get what I can

    Lyric Correction:I was impressed this was up already.

    Couple of corrections though.

    "The words that come to rest upon my luring...Tounge

    Oh, ill bet i know..."

    And I'm pretty sure " Underneath this FLESHY robe" although it's hard to tell. My argument is that hes talking about a monster that lurks within himself, referring to flesh as the exterior makes more sense.

    Also ".. Bring me peace, from this wolf covered in FLEECE."
    Although fleas is a good comedic option.

    General Comment:I believe that he says "I'm not that smooth but I'm not blind." Seems to make the most sense (not that it would have to, but just my first impulse when I heard it).

    Thanks for working on this - freakin awesome song!

    General Comment:this is what I hear:


    oh I'll bet I know what you like
    at least think I know what you might
    I'm not the most cocksure guy
    but I get MORE bold with every smile (small correction)


    oh I'll bet I know what you like
    at least think I know what you might
    I'm not the most cocksure guy
    but I still sure fight the good COCK FIGHT (im absolutely sure about this one)


    with every passing night my conscience lessens
    and seems to pacify these guilt filled SECTIONS (talking about his dick again, methinks)

    General Comment:I think it's pretty obvious what this song is about, and I REALLY love it. Super catchy and upbeat. Basically a guy that sleeps around, has a sex addiction perhaps, and with every one night stand he is more of a monster with less of a conscience towards it. He knows he has an addiction but is pretty powerless to it.

    General Comment:TAOS in all caps is obviously an acronym and not about the city in new Mexico. No doubt the song is about fucking but what's the acronym? Too addicted on sex, tits and other sh*t, ...?

    General Comment:It is "SESSIONS," not sections. As in, sessions of sex with random women.

    And it's "I'll NEVER scratch this itch of mine," by which he means that no matter how much he gets, it will never be enough.

    General Comment:yep, pretty clear this is about one night stands, and an unsatisfiable lust. the more it happens, the less guilt he feels about it. basically his 'sluttiness' is just getting worse and more out of control

    General Comment:I agree, TAOS must be an acronym but, yeah, for what? Also, while it may not be about, it certainly has the hum!

    General Comment:I'm guessing the acronym is The Art of Seduction. Yeah?

    The real question is: what does BOTE stand for? (Aside from that song obviously having a lot of boat references...)
