Your love is like a studded leather headlock
Your kiss, it could put creases in the rain
You're rarer than a can of dandelion and burdock
And those other girls are just postmix lemonade

Suck it and see, you never know
Sit next to me before I go
Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for you

I poured my aching heart into a pop song
I couldn't get the hang of poetry
That's not a skirt girl, that's a sawn-off shotgun
And I can only hope you've got it aimed at me

Suck it and see, you never know
Sit next to me before I go
Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for

Blue moon girls from once upon a shangri-la,
How I often wonder where you are
You, have got that face that just says
"Baby, I was made to break your heart"

Suck it and see, you never know
Sit next to me before I go
Go, Go, Go
Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for you

    I don't think he is talking about any girl per-say; i think he is talking about the rare things in life, he puts it in a girl context because the majority of people can relate to the idea that there is something or someone special out there amongst everything and everyone, i think he does a similar concept in view from the afternoon. Or it could be about heartbreak you know...

    I think it's about a guy who has a relationship with this girl. He feels really strongly about her, and he's just asking her to take a chance with him, even if they both know that he is gonna be hurt by the relationship they have.

    Punk rock biker love is a complex and passionate thing. It's a bit ragged on the edges and doesn't look like love in the movies but there can be poetry in postmix too.

    I think it's about this relationship between a girl and a guy. She is really complex and hard work, this is in reference to "jigsaw women" which suggests she is difficult and complex. Also i think it means that he is in love with er so much he would take the hate just to get the love from her. This is where is says "be cruel to me because im a fool for you".
