I like the bullet in the water, yeah
I like the morning after pill, hello
Breath in
Lose control

I wanna fuck ya in fire, yeah
I wanna hold ya till you breath no more
Can't hide, oh

Meet me in the clouds
Let me work it out
Don't you take it personal, personal
Don't you like the control? Oh
Don't you like the control? Oh

Let's tell the people what we have to say
Let's tell the people till they can't hear no more
Can't cry
More and more

We never tried to be the leading voice
We couldn't help it 'cause you gave us no choice
Can't fight, oh

    General CommentIt think it is more about abortion as a form of birth control. On the one hand - morning after pill, bullet in the water (unprotected sex), don't you like control, can't hide (as in, can't hide the belly) and you gave us no choice all seem to suggest that this dude just wants to be free to have unprotected sex and worry about the consequences later. Politically, that even seems to be his philosophy when he goes on about voice and telling the people. On the other hand, I can't get away from the idea that he wants to have so much sex it kills both of them and "in the clouds" they'll still keep at it. Either way, it's deeply disturbed, which is why I like it so much. Anyone else?

    General CommentYup, just watched the video. It's definitely about having unprotected sex and not worrying about it. The video starts out with a shaking dinning room with the traditional leave it to beaver family while someone's definitely gettin it on hardcore upstairs. There's all these spilt red wine images and even an identical twin shot (the worst thing one would imagine in an unwanted pregnancy). But the bands message becomes loud and clear, blowing a hole in the dinning room and the members leave the black/white world of simple right and wrong to enter the full-color world of having sex with hundreds of beautiful girls. Don't take it personal and in the clouds I think refer to indiscriminate sex and taking a wider view of sex as a human need rather than a deeply personal experience. Just have sex and let the morning after pill wash your troubles away.

    General CommentI get the impression that the songwriter is telling the deep, dark thoughts of an incel, from a tongue-in-cheek perspective, poking fun at them.

    General CommentDamn, I love this band!!

    Yep, it's about sex, reminds me of a one night stand or something, like that's all it is "don't you take it personal" so maybe he just wants to have sex with her? And the morning after pill, yeah that prevents pregnancy
