Dogs eat dogs eat dogs
Move through
There's rain inside your house
For our moods
But I don't want to live here
Even if it's all we've got

Mr. Big got an expectation
Thinks he thinks he's my education
He said, "Don't you think
We could make a couple of G's"
Why don't you go for yourself
And take what's coming to you?

I didn't want to go inside
It's a burned out party
It's killing my pride

Just want to live with her again
Can we do that?
Even if we can't stand to
Sleep in the same bed

Mr. Big got an expectation
Thinks he thinks he's my education
He said, "Don't you think
We could make a couple of G's"
Why don't you go for yourself
And take what's waiting for you?

Fetched the mail at a quarter 'til one
I think the mailman thinks I'm dumb
I think the mailman thinks me dumb

    General CommentLiteral interpretation I have is: Drug dealer wants to turn him into a dealer and his payment would be drugs (just want to live with her again).

    (I didn't want to go inside
    It's a burned out party
    It's killing my pride)
    gives me the vision of a flop house for drug users.

    My InterpretationI used to be unsure of what this song was about, but now I am almost certain it at least in part has to do with molestation. Particularly, Elliott's feeling about Charlie (his step father, who he suspected molested him when he was young).

    Specifically lines like:
    Mr. Big got an expectation
    Thinks he thinks he's my education
    ...
    Why don't you go for yourself
    And take what's coming to you?

    Finding out certain things about my own situation has allowed me to see this. At least, so I think. But it would be consistent with themes Elliott uses in hus music.
