"Pony Up" as written by and Caleb Followill Jared Followill....
I got a razor sharp mind that wants to cut you down.
A little place in mind and baby I could let you down.
Pony up, we got a ways to go.
Set me up my friends are running low.
Oh, oh, oh

If you take my hand I'm gonna get you outta here.
The crush of bottles break another swinging chandelier.
In a round of bullets and blood and smoke,
I saw the midnight come and I watched her go.
Oh, oh, oh

In a round of bullets and blood and smoke,
I saw the midnight come and I watched her go.
Yeah I watched her go.
I watched her
I watched her go.
I watched her go.

    General CommentI think its about random hookups. you meet someone at a bar and the mental game that ensues...
    pony up to the bar and toss down the shots
    "Set me up my friend, I'm running low" could be the only line in the song directed to the bartender
    the rest of the lines pertain to the girl/hookup.

    still stumped by the line "In a rain of bullets and blood and snow" unless it defines moment leading up to and then climax...?

    that was my take on it.

    General Commentcaleb has stated in a couple of interviews that a lot of the lyrics on cas he adlibbed, so a couple of songs might have no meaning or have a couple of meanings, i dont think its going to have any set meaning, but i could be wrong

    My Interpretation"I got razor sharp mind that wants to cut you down
    A little place in mind maybe I could bed you down
    Pony up, we got a ways to go
    Set me up my friend, I'm running low

    Oh, if you take my hand I'm gonna get you outta here
    The crash of bottles breaking and the swinging chandelier
    In a rain of bullets and blood and snow
    I saw the midnight coming and I watched her go

    In a rain of bullets and blood and snow
    I saw the midnight come and I watched her go
    Yeah, I watched her go
    I watched her

    I watched her go"

    I think this song is about his experience at a bar or party where he is trying to bring a girl home with him. He says he has a "razor sharp mind" in that he is clever and that he is trying to think of ways to "bed you down" as in sleep with her. When he says "pony up we got a ways to go" he is saying that he is far from getting her to come home and he needs to get to work. I think he means a bar in the sense that he wants the bartender to "set me up my friend im running low" as in he needs another drink to help him out. The second verse he is describing a wild scene from the bar or since he says "breaking bottles and swinging chandelier" makes me think it possibly could be a house party... either way it is a wild drinking scene and in the midst of the wild night he loses track of her or he loses her attention and she leaves.
