claimin' a friend

Sexual implications are written all over this song. It's one of their hardest tracks on saturate, pun intended.

I think this is one of those songs when you are in love with someone but you can't tell them that you are for whatever reason.
[You have a taste I can't ignore]
I think that this girl is striking and he's finding it difficult to ignore her and ignore the fact that he wants to be with her on an intimate level.
[I'll never know your sugarcoat]
The guy begins to think that there's no way he can get with her or be her boyfriend, so he's basically saying he'll never know what it's like to have her sexually or as a girlfriend.

I'd say it is about sex, mans confidence, faking pleasure, orgasm...
you're ready to blow
you're ready to go
but I'll never know
willing to drown in a tidal wave
let me believe that you're on your way
I'm on the floor
battered and bored
you got a taste
Ok, Sugarcoat is pretty self explanatory.
First off, "It started again claiming a friend, how could it be, Ive never been, I'm all alone out in the cold I'll never know your sugarcoat is just as sweet as I am". This says in all, It's happened again, "it" being in this case the sugarcoating, which may imply he's been sugarcoated before, and now it's happened with another friend. "I couldn't be, I've never been" saying it's not his fault, that he's never done it to anybody. then "I'm all alone out in the cold" says that he has basically nowhere left and he is feeling cold inside. "I'll never know your sugarcoat is just as sweet as I am" could mean that he was honest with that person, while they sugarcoated themselves to him to make him like them.
The chorus, "Look what you did, Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red, What did you say, Willing to drown in a tidal wave, Take me away, Let me believe that you're on your way
Look what you did, Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red" says in all, Look at hat you have done, think of your lies till you cry, is what I think. Then what did you say, willing to drown in a tidal wave, may be all about how he caught the sugarcoat, and knew what the person meant. Take Me Away let me believe that you're on your way, could be just make me think you've gone from my life.
The rest of the song just implies the same, in a different manner. Sorry if it's a bit lengthy, and it's my first, feel free to correct me!
