Gold on the Ceiling Lyrics

Down in the waves
She screams again
Roar at the door
My mind can't take much more
I could never drown in

They wanna get my
They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain't blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It's...

    Hmmm, I always thought the gold on the ceiling was the sun above the water and she is drowning trying to get to the gold. But they "death,whatever" is gonna steal it.

    He is talking about gold diggers. They are trying to get at his shit and are using sex as their ticket in. And as long as they are trying to get at him with sex,he is not going to try to stop them(ain't no guard at my house ). Let em keep trying all they want,as long as his dick benefits.

    People are trying to take what's his because he has it good (gold) and it's only a matter of time before they try to take it and climb up the ceiling like the little social climbers/ gold diggers they are

    simple fools, its about groupies! now that they are famous, gold digging girls want his "gold on the ceiling" (money) and he is fighting the temptation. also a sign of good lyricists is songs being able to be interpreted many different ways i.e. Bob Dylan

    Gold on the ceiling is the spiritual crown on his head. No matter how much he tries to protect it, he realizes that the powers of darkness and money will eventually take his crown away.

    Gold on the ceiling is gold at it's high. it's a term. The song most likely means after you get into gold to be financially safe the cabal will take it anyways.

    Your gold on the ceiling is your sense of well-being. It's what holds you together, keeps you intact. What's more valuable than that? Those that try to take it away are the people who want to label you, judge you, make you feel they are better than you...take away your sense of "I'm OK/You're OK"...what's left after that?

    I get a sense that the Black Keys write songs like this because they want to make you think. You cant call what anyone else thinks wrong or right because you yourself don't know whether you're right or not.

    I think this song has everything to do with gold digging, sex, vice, wealth, and being used. I wouldn't count out the allusions to religion either. If the church is misappropriating (misusing) it's wealth , that's got just as much to do with vice as it does with religion. Not to mention "ain't no guard at my house" could refer to the doors of a church and how nobody needs to guard hallowed grounds.

    I try to interpret this song personally. Maybe the singer is a gold digger or saler. He hide all his gold on the ceiling so that no one can see and steal them continously. ;p

    He might be a charming and seductive male that can melt any women's heart. Just like a smooth operator. I know that cos i'm fallen for that similar guy recently. He stole my heart forever. I hope someday i'll make him the happiest person alive. Don't get me wrong, its just a song anyways. Enjoy.

    My interpretation of gold on the ceiling is rather adult, meaning not drugs or sex. I think the song is talking about the fact gold keeps rising in value and rising and rising and at some point the commie fascist goberment will swoop in when the going is good and take it all away like they did in the past. It is a statement about what is going on right under our noses.
