"Piñata" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
Well hell if I
Should decide
To give it more
A little effort
Well hell if I'm
Tempted again
One little fight
Replace by lust for you

I'll ask my curious side to follow you
To a bed of angels
Can't help this wandering eye
Well lucky you
The devil made ya (look)

Well I've never tried
Pulling you in
Lucky at last
Defending answers
It's almost like
You're breaking my piñata while I'm hinting
At my lust for you

I'll ask my curious side to follow you
To a bed of angels
Can't help this wandering eye
Well lucky you
The devil made ya look too far to the abyss
No bed of angels, mystified defines it best
The devil made ya look

So I'll ask my curious side to follow you
To a bed of angels
Can't help this wandering eye
Well lucky you
The devil made ya look too far to the abyss
No bed of angels, mystified defines it best
The devil made ya look

    General CommentBest on the album for me. Gives me chills every time i listen. Love the contrast between the chilled out chorus and the fast-paced verses. Beautiful.

    My InterpretationI believe that this song is about a significant other cheating maybe. He's saying that he may sometimes lust for other girls, but he has so must lust/love for his sig.other that he could never cheat. She pulls him back in. However, his sig. other cheated on him (devil made you look).

    Song Meaning"The story behind "Piñata" is actually pretty funny. Pete wrote the lyrics based on the idea of walking through the mall, checking out girls and being called out for it. It's a tongue and cheek thing. We actually made a t-shirt that says "The devil made me look," which was inspired by a lyric in that song." - Sam Loeffler.

    General CommentI think I read too that it's about Pete's woman getting pissed because Pete was checking out young hotties at the mall. "you're breaking my pinata, while i'm hinting at my lust for you" means she is still the beneficiary of the hotties and his "wandering eye", so she shouldn't get pissed.

    My Interpretationcould this be the first ever Chevelle song to be about sex? It sure sounds like it, but there's probably some metaphor that i'm not grasping.

    Lyric CorrectionHere are the correct lyrics as they appear in the album booklet:

    Well hell if I
    Should decide
    To give it more
    A little effort

    Well hell if I'm
    Tempted again
    One little fight
    Replace by lust for you

    I'll ask my curious side to follow you
    To a bed of angels
    Can't help this wandering eye
    Well lucky you
    The devil made ya (look)

    Well I've never tried
    Pulling you in
    Lucky at last
    Defending answers
    It's almost like
    You're breaking my piñata while I'm hinting
    At my lust for you

    Well lucky you
    The devil made ya look too far to the abyss

    My Interpretationa guy is infatuated with a girl, but she doesn't notice. he sorta stalks her for awhile, then musters up the courage to approach her and try to get to know her but she basically ignores him (it's almost like your breaking my pinata - metaphor for heart). afterwords he's kinda shell-shocked (mystified) by the rejection and that she's not the angel he thought she was.

    General CommentJust saw them play today in Sacramento, Pete explicitly said this song is about sex.

    My InterpretationThis may sound out there but I always liked to think of this song as being about suicide bombers. "Bed of angels" being the main pull for that, But I could see the sex reference, definitely plausible. I like it when the meaning is open to the listener, but when the artist specifies it puts all opinions to rest. Rock On Pete!

    My InterpretationSong talks about blind devotion to someone/idea that the target doesn't believe in. The singer is more devoted than the person the singer is talking to.
