Fast Times At Clairemont High Lyrics
I've been saving myself for you.
I waited my whole life for you.
I've been saving myself for you.
Tonight we'll be throwing a party.
Under the sunset we started to drink.
A little faster now!

I honestly believe that the song is about a selfish teenage boy who is dealing with typical 'high school love' with a girl that is way more popular than him and he has been watching her from afar, though he knows he won't be able to receive the same affection he has for her. In the song he states 'I was saving me self for you' many times which probably has to do with then pursuing a relationship or probably something to do with his virginaty.
'Tonight we'll be throwing a party, under the sunset we started to drink (a little faster now) The celebration, so many faces, I say the words as the moon paints at us blue.' Which means that the one that he secretly admires is throwing a party (as most high schoolers do) and he was invited, along with many others. The party has illegal alcohol, and everyone is drinking quite heavily.
'Now hold on, this is innocent blood, all the beach boys look like sharks.' Meaning most of the 'beach boys' (popular) are probably heavily intoxicated and are now flirting with the boys high school crush infront of him, making him feel used and betrayed.
'Cause without you nothing ever mattered I'd scream and wave my arms. But you don't understand me, as I watch them feed on you, its over. If I die, you die too.' The helpless love struck boy is trying to grab the girls attention, and fails miserably. Angered by the whole situation, he makes a plan saying if he cannot have her, no one can. Because I think the 'As I watch them feed on you' part represents him accidentally witnessing his lover engaging in sexual acts with another fellow high schooler.

WORDS FROM VIC:
This is a very selfish song that basically says, “If I can’t have you, then no one can.” I think this has gone through everyone’s head at least a couple times in their life. The theme of this album talks about these natural thoughts and feelings to want and take—the desire to be in love and the desperation for someone else to love you. This song deals with human nature and our selfish tendencies. I like the music because it has a hint of Michael Jackson influence.

I feel that it's about a guy who is really depressed and his happiness is this girl. This girl is way out of his league but they still have a "thing" and ever since then he's been basically in love. He has been saving his life for her and at the end of the song he supposably dies after "don't you know I'd die for you? I saved myself for you." Saved as in past tense and the song then ends with him saying "without you, what's the point?"

I think its about him dating a girl, and basically getting better and staying strong for her. He's probably going through depression and he's trying to be happy for her, "I was saving myself for you." He was trying to get better for her and 'save' himself from his depression, and then he says "without you whats the point?" without her he won't get better.

I think this is about how he was going out with a girl who was helping him with depression and she was helping him to stop self harming and he would do it all for her but they broke up so that's why he says " I was saving myself for you "

He wants this girl but he watches her be with other people and he's done. He will destroy anyone who gets close to her until she comes to him.
