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.

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"

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.
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
