"Giants" as written by and Thomas John Orscher Dylan James Rau....
Two words!
Rock, chalk, shot a jayhawk
Never been in jail 'cause I never get caught
I got smarts, dark, dangerous dog
ODB got it right from the start
You got one and you changed from crazy to calm
I've been awake for days in the dusk and the dawn
And you're loving me whether you want to or not
But I want you for sure, I am loving you more

I am loving you, more
I am loving you more
I am loving you, more
Who heard?
What, no, no right from the start
Go sell that shit somewhere farther from the heart
Running, and running, and running, and stop
Come on, we both knew this thing would be hard
I see art
You see class
You think (you think)
You ask (you ask)
You say darling am I a chore?
I said I know you love me, I am loving you more

I am loving you, more
I am loving you more
I am loving you, more

Pick up the perfect card
Slip into smiling wildly
After the rest have gone
We become beyond timeless
Give you everything that I have ever owned
Soon I will have bought us up a house and home
Up on the seventh floor
I know you love me, I am loving you more

I am loving you, more
I am loving you more
I am loving you, more
I am loving you more

I am loving you, more
I am loving you, more
I am loving you, more

    General CommentThe words are very confusing to me. I feel like the song is talking about a relationship through three phases of life.

    The first verse sounds like a young man at college in the first stage of a relationship:

    He's reckless and overconfident.
    "Never been to jail 'cus I never get caught
    I got smarts
    Dark, dangerous dog,"

    I tried to discover what ODB "got right from the start" but couldn't find it. I'm assuming it's something about women since he was famous for that.

    I think this is about sex.
    "You got one and you changed from crazy to calm
    I've been awake for days in the dusk and the dawn"
    You got "one"? Got an orgasm and calmed down maybe?

    I read an interview that said this was about the fatalism of love.
    "And you're loving me whether you want to or not"

    The next verse sounds like an argument or series of arguments which makes me believe it's talking about the second stage of a relationship (midlife).

    Arguing/fighting? Possibly making personal attacks.
    "Who heard
    What, no, right from the start
    Go sell that shit somewhere farther from the heart"

    Referencing the rat race during midlife. Also dealing with a partner through the tough times.
    "Running and running and running and stop
    Come on we both knew this thing would be hard"

    Ruminating on their differences and things that annoy each other. Something people do in second stage relationships.
    "I see art, you see class
    You think, you ask"

    The third verse is about the third stage of a relationship (late life).

    This only makes me think of a game of poker used as a metaphore. He knows her well enough to see her tell when she gets a good hand because they've been together so long.
    "Pick up the perfect card
    Slip into smiling wildly"

    Not sure what "the rest" are. Could be children have left home. Or old friends are gone. This indicates that the couple is older to me.
    "After the rest have gone
    We become beyond timeless"

    A very strange verse. First he's showing his maturity (age) by affirming his commitment to her. Then something about a home on the seventh floor. I think Mormons believe only men can dwell in the 7th level of heaven after death, but their wives can visit if they invite them. But it's hard to get their. You have to "buy" your way by being pious and following all the strict rules on earth.
    "Give you everything that I have ever owned
    Soon I will have bought us up a house and home
    Up on the seventh floor"
    I'm sure that's not right but I don't know what the "7th floor" could elude to.

    It feels like there are a lot of inside joke/meanings in this song that only the band members and their friends would understand. Everything is very vague.

    Or they could just be spitting random stuff Beck style. I'm not sure but I like it!

    My InterpretationIt's about a guy who loves a girl and is trying to show her his real feelings for her and what he's really about. "Rock, Chalk, shot a Jayhawk" is referencing the KU chant. He says he's dangerous and dark, and then makes a Wu-Tang Clan reference. Then says how when the one comes along it can change how you act and he thinks about her so much that he can't sleep, then proceeds to say that he's irresistible. Then repeats that he loves her to show just how much. And you get the point for the rest of the song.
