WTF is this song about?

If time itself was his demeanor
There'd be no sunlight or a glimmer
Of sunlight landing on the street,
Sunsuit girls must be discreet.
Sunsuit girls must be discreet,
Nursing their fathers locked inside
They masqueraded as his bride

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says "maybe"
That's never!
Never say never!

Slumped by the courthouse with windburnt skin
That man could give a fuck about the grin
On your face as you walk by
Randy as a goat
He's sleepin' on papers but
He'd be warm in your coat
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says "maybe"
That's never!
Never say never!

There's no easy way to lose your sight
On the street, on the stairs
Who's on your flight?
Old couple walks by
Ugly as sin
He's got her
She's got him

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says "maybe"
That's never!
Never say never!

Sun seems to move,
Across the sky so slow
It's us who's turning
With nowhere to go
Sun seems to move,
Across the sky so slow
It's us who's turning
With nowhere to go

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says "maybe"
That's never!
Never say never!

umm, wow ok. How did you find this one? The only part I get is that the guy wants to get laid the rest of it really doesn't fit. Oh wait, maybe its about how she's really a bitch and she's better in bed? I don't know. As said in a previous comment drugs are bad. I have to find the song-if it's metal or rock which are full of strange metaphors only the singer understands then its ok, but if its pop or some other silly thing then its totally the drugs. Unless they're like Fallout Boy or Panic! at the Disco then its semi normal but it its not... gah! I give up. Stupid song, stupid band. I quit.

bratt2: ooohhhh boy.

Ok just watched the video. it was on VH1 classic apparently. lead singers a girl. From what I can tell she just wants a screw. the video's as confusing as the song. someone stop the drug induced madness.

vpresler: uummm, YIKES!

I just watched the video and then another just to see if I was missing something. I wasn't. It was just as scary. Kinda reminiscent of Every Breath You Take, but with a Bangles flair. I watched Say No, and it was animals biting things.. didn't get that one either. I think you need to find better bands to listen to that don't require Ph.D.'s to understand or a pile of shrooms, which ever you prefer.

yep, she wants to get laid, but there is a hint of societal disdain there as well. The reference to child abuse in stanza 1, the homeless man willing to mug you in stanza 2, the mismatched couple in stanza 3, and the general overview of the population going nowhere fast and not realizing it. But in the end, she doesn't give up hope... I think.... I am so confused!!!
