"Genghis Khan" as written by and Andrew Wyatt Christian Karlsson....
I know there's no form
And no labels to put on
To this thing we keep
And dip into when we need
And I don't have the right
To ask where you go at night
But the waves hit my head
To think someone's in your bed

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

And the lights, they glow
Like I just lost the World War
And the scene slips away
To the evenness I fake
It's a cheat somewhere
'Cause I don't really want you, girl
But you can't be free
'Cause I'm selfish, I'm obscene

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

    My InterpretationIt's about how a "friends with benefits",kinda relationship becomes more to the guy. He gets jealous of where she goes,who she's spending time with,it makes him get a little bit,"Genghis Khan". In reference to the Mongol hordes that subjugated all of Asia and reached to eastern Europe. He acknowledges that his possessiveness is unfair,but he's going to be that way anyway. Great song. :)

    My InterpretationSince the beautiful video came out, it's most often interpreted as a queer love story.
    The "irrational" jealousy and conflicted feelings of the song speak deeply to some closeted folks who feel that their love is off-limits.
