All her signals are getting lost in the ether (That’s what she wanted)
She's a landslide with a city beneath her (That’s what she wanted)
So take a good look, so you'll never forget it (That's what she wanted)
Take a deep breath, I know I'm...

    This song is about the bitchy popular girl at high school that takes advantage of guys. When Tom and Mark were younger, their friend got asked out by the most popular girl in the school, so he went to her house and her and her friends soaked him in water with a hose.

    "Holly's looking dry, she's looking for an easy target"

    This is about a girl named Holly, who invited their friend, later released their producer, Jerry Finn, over to her house. She ambushed him and sprayed him with a hose. Jerry had to then ride home on his bike dripping wet and humiliated.

    This song is not about any of their ex-girlfriends. In the cd booklet, it says it's about a mean, popular girl and her friend who tricked one of Toms friends to go over to her house. He was all happy with himself, but, when he got their, the girl and her friend squirted him with water guns. Aw.

    The first person is exactly right it says so in the lyric book, tom explains what the song means off to the side of the lyrics.

    The first person is actually ill-informed. The song is actually about a sound crew guy's love for a popular girl in school. She would talk to him, and flirt, but she never had any intentions, she was having fun with him, he was a geeky guy, an easy target.

    Holly was an ex tom's girlfriend who dated him so she could get to know Tom's older brother. Eventually she dumped Tom and dated his bro.

    Holly just symbolizes the mean, perverse teenage girl.

    If you look through all of the Blink-182 CDs youll find mention of Holly, just like in the RHCP CDs.

    If you listen to the whole self titled CD in a certain order there is a story and holly uses tom or mark and she's looking for an easy target they use metaphors such as ''shes a flower that you place on my casket'' to prtray this and in the song ''all of this'' right after this song on the album tom sings ''use me holly'' so she probably hold some significance to mark or tom

    One of my ex- boyfriends was dating and being used by a girl named Holly. I would walk by them like "Holly's looking dry, looking for an easy target...."

    Use him Holly c'mon and use him..
