"Whore" as written by and Kevin Gregory Churko John Christopher Howorth....
I’m the girl you’ve been thinking about
The one thing you can’t live without
I’m the girl you’ve been waiting for
I’ll have you down on your knees
I’ll have you begging for more
You probably thought I wouldn’t get this far
You thought I’d end up in the back of a car
You probably thought that I’d never escape
I’d be a rat in a cage, I’d be a slave to this place
You don’t know how hard I fought to survive
Waking up alone when I was left to die
You don’t know about this life I’ve led
All these roads I’ve walked
All these tears I’ve bled

So how can this be?
You’re praying to me
As I look in your eyes
I know just what that means
I can be, I can be your everything

I can be your whore
I am the dirt you created
I am your sinner
And your whore
But let me tell you something baby
You love me for everything you hate me for

I’m the one that you need and fear
Now that you’re hooked, it’s all becoming clear
That all your judgments that you placed on me
Was a reflection of discovery
So maybe next time when you cast your stones
From the shadows of the dark unknown
You will crawl up from your hiding place
Take a look in the mirror
See the truth in your face

So how can this be?
You’re praying to me
As I look in your eyes
I know just what that means
I can be, I can be your everything

I can be your whore
I am the dirt you created
I am your sinner
And your whore
But let me tell you something baby
You love me for everything you hate me for

I am the dirt you created
I am your sinner
And your whore
But let me tell you something baby
You love me, you want me, you need me

Well I can be your whore
I am the dirt you created
I am the sinner
And your whore
But let me tell you something baby
You love me for everything you hate me for

(And I can be your whore)
(And I can be your whore)
(And I can be your whore)
Let me tell you something baby
You love me for everything you hate me for
You love me for everything you hate me for

    Song MeaningThis song is about someone who was told (esp. by a specific person) that they wouldn't amount to anything or weren't worth anything. Now, they're living a nice life and turned out pretty damn well, but they say it wasn't easy. /And you don't know about this life I've lived/ Or these roads I've walked/ Or these deaths I've bled/ So now, the person(s) who gave the speaker all this crap is begging them for things and adoring them. He/She is also in a sense saying that the only reason that they have come this far is because they had that fuel behind them telling them to prove all the haters wrong. /I am the dark you created/ I am a sinner/ I am your whore/

    General CommentI think it's about how conservative men view women they deem as "sluts" and how they act like they're so much better than those women, when in reality they are obsessed with them and are more perverted than they let on.

    Song MeaningWhat if it's very basically about a man and a woman who have a very carnal relationship that has a certain masochistic tone to it. She's been through a lot and no matter how strong she is on her own, she feels attached to someone who doesn't love her the way she loves him...Or at least he's not willing to admit his feelings for her and chooses to live in the lusty side of life with her never allowing her to build on her vision of the relationship to a more fulfilling level of spiritual and socially acceptable way.

    Song Meaningto me this song is about how a relationship fell apart and how he thought she would not amount to nothing and bad mouth her saying she was a whore. so she is basically saying after all the struggles she felt when he left her she got back on her feet and if doing better in life makes her whore so be it she will embrace that name and

    Lyric CorrectionI'm the girl you're thinking about
    The one thing you can't live without
    Yeah, I'm the girl you've been waiting for
    I'll have you down on your knees
    I'll have you begging for more

    You probably thought I wouldn't get this far
    You thought I'd end up in the back of a car
    You probably thought that I'd never escape
    I'd be a rat in a cage, I'd be enslaved in this place

    You don't know how hard I fought to survive
    Waking up all alone when I was left to die
    And you don't know about this life I've lived
    Or these roads I've walked
    Or these deaths I've bled

    [Refrain]
    So how can this be?
    You're praying to me
    There's a look in your eyes
    I know just what that means
    I can be, I can be your everything...

    I can be your whore
    I am the dark you created
    I am the sinner
    I am your whore
    Let me tell you something baby
    You love me for everything you hate me for

    I'm the one that you need and fear
    Now that you heard this I'll be coming clear
    That higher judgement that you placed on me is a reflection of the stuff I write

    So maybe next time when you cast your stones
    From the shadows and the dark unknown
    You will crawl out of your hiding place
    Take a look in the mirror and see the truth on your face

    So how can this be?
    You're praying to me
    There's a look in your eyes
    I know just what that means
    I can be, I can be your everything...

    The
    That's a look on
    I am the dark you created
    I am the sinner
    I am your whore
    Let me tell you something baby
    You love me
    You want me
    You need me

    So how can this be?
    You're praying to me
    There's a look in your eyes
    I know just what that means
    I can be, I can be your everything...

    General CommentIt's about how people look down on whores as less than human, and yet they only exist because of the poverty and violence that drove them there and the same people who cast judgment don't do anything to help them have a better life. In addition, people who pay to have sex with whores are hypocritical enough to look down upon the person providing those services.

    My InterpretationIt is where anyone looks down on someone for the things they see in themselves. You hate the whore that shows you yourself! I believe that the song is talking about the hypocrisy that is in society between sexual lust(any desire) and the love or addiction for the sin that one hates so much. Some hate publicly but love and embrace in private while fighting feelings or self-loathing and guilt and shame. So they reflect those negative feelings on those they see as whores. It is common among people who say the women in the porn industry are whores and yet in privacy indulge in the very acts they have publicly condemned. It's not a specific group (example: Christians) but all people who hate the uncleaniness in our own hearts and minds.

    Song MeaningStraight from an interview with Maria Brink herself:

    "Our single just came out, "Whore." It's a powerful song. I want people to know the meaning in that song. It's about taking the power back for something degrading and public humiliation — when people are cold to other people or stoning other people because they're different or they don't understand them. ... It's about learning to love ourselves and not letting other people's words and harsh ways affect us, because that's really their perception and that's their world. The reason why I used such a strong word ... (is) so that they can really get the empowerment behind the song."
