So new single ‘Chocolate’ is about being under the influence. Just to clear it up, do you say ‘spliff’ or ‘split’?...
Hey now call it a split 'cause you know that you will
Oh you bite your friend like chocolate
You say, we'll go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no

Now we run run away from the boys in the blue, and my car smells like chocolate
Hey now think about what you do, think about what they say, think about how to think
Pause it play it, pause it play it, pause it

Oh we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it. no we're never gonna' quit it no

Now you're never gonna' quit it, now you're never gonna' quit it, now you're never gonna' quit it
If you don't start smoking it, that's what she said
She said we're dressed in black, head to toe, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no

Hey now we're building up speed as we're approaching the hill
Oh my hair smells like chocolate
Hey now you say you're gonna' quit it but you're never gonna' quit it
Gotta get it, gotta get it, gotta get it, gotta get it, go!
And play it cool

Oh and you said we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black, from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
We're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no

Well I think we better go, seriously better go
Said it's better than hanging on
Seriously better go, oh oh, well I think we better go
Said it's better than hanging on
Said Rebecca better know
Seriously better go

We go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black, head to toe, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna' quit it. no we're never gonna' quit it no
No no no

Well I think we better go, seriously better go
Said it's better than hanging on
Seriously better go, oh oh, well I think we better go
Said it's better than hanging on
Said Rebecca better know
Seriously better go

    My InterpretationI think it's about how people who have questionable lifestyles, such as those of drug use or crime, don't see their actions the way everyone else does. While we see them using drugs, we would "call it a spliff", but to them, it "smells like chocolate". People never perceive their own actions to be as bad as they would perceive them to be if they saw someone else doing it, and I think that might be what this song is about.

    General CommentIts about his sister, she was a heroin addict and she used to tell him that her syringes were her 'guns which she use to hide ("guns hidden under our petticoat"), the 'chocolate' refers to the heroin and he wrote this song in a blur of emotions he must have been experiencing at the time, he never meant for it to be released from his computer but somehow it made its way onto soundcloud

    My InterpretationIn an interview, Matty says this song is about "me and my mates knocking around in my hometown. It is a kind of love letter to the kind of relationships we had with authority figures, be it our parents or the police. its kind of a story about small town boredom."


    To me, this song is a serenade or an ode of sorts to when a guy likes a girl and the time they spend together, just doing wild crazy teenager stuff. He believes life is sweet when their together ('chocolate') and he doesn't ever want them to break up or give up their time together ('quit it'). I tend to envision some cool teenagers having fun around town together when I hear this song. They don't want their time together to end ('quit'). They prefer to be youthful and rebellious and have a good time.

    My OpinionThis screams heroin to me... As a recovering opiate/opiod addict of over 3 years, I felt that way as soon as I heard it.

    I've heard tar called chocolate, and needles as guns. Besides the slang terms used, what really caught my ear was when he says "Hey now you say you're gunna' quit it but you're never gunna' quit it."

    Heroin is literally the hardest drug habit to kick. I can't tell you how many times I've heard something similar come out of a friends mouth, over and over and over again.

    My InterpretationTo me it resonates as being about doing everything you're not supposed to do. Chocolate is most definitely imagery for a drug (Probably pot) and the rest of it seems to narrate the finer points of a more edgy lifestyle.

    My InterpretationI always thought it was about "the chocolate"..specifically hash. it looks like chunks of chocolate. they're running away from the police because their car smells like hash. ya know?

    Song MeaningChocolate is another word for weed or pot. The boys in the blue are the ones that don't want to legalize weed. (Or the police officers) The ones in the black are the ones that want it legalized. They are hiding guns to protect themselves in case they get caught. They are never going to stop smoking it. They need to go somewhere where they won't get caught and everything smells like pot after they smoke it

    General CommentIt's about a bunch of friends who've been smoking "chocolate" (pot) in their car and are now being pursued by the cops (the boys in blue). I'm pretty sure the line is NOT "bite your friend like chocolate" but "Oh your friends smell like chocolate". The singer has a pretty strong accent, but I think it's more likely that smoking weed makes you smell like weed rather than bite people.

    General Commentwell its not 'call it a spliff' its 'call it a split'
    also it's not 'said its better than hanging on' its 'said the feds are here you know'

    its about kids smoking weed in their cars cos and the policeman trying to arrest them because there's no proper crime to deal with
    the chocolate is a reference to the drugs (obviously)

    i still don't understand the petticoats bit though?
