Nuguns Lyrics

on Amazon Music

And the little boy stared
Into the eyes of the night
Button collects price of his time
Little girl glared
Sheets of denial
The bullet connects to the price of her crime

What have we said
Wasn't it their bed
What of our presence

    To me this song is about to different people growing up a boy and a girl who one becomes a song artist the boy(levers erect note of his rhyme) and one who becomes a prostitute the girl(little girl bled sheets of the night lovers conect to the price of his dime)
    There stories differ the boy becoming famous by becoming a song writer and the girl struggling whichs ends in her becoming a prostitute.
    Then there stories intertwine when the boy buys the girl for a night out but the police find out and arrest them but the girl runs and is shot.

    Just remember that the demo tape Defy You is the earlier version of Nuguns.

    I think it is about the new social trends evolving from our ancestors because nuguns means new ways new trends etc

    I think this has to do with a couple having sex for the first time."Now the little boy sees through the eyes of delight" meaning the boy sees how much the girl enjoys sex.
    "Levers erect note of his rhyme" meaning he knows that she likes it and that he keeps going."Little girl bled sheets of the night"
    When he put his penis in for the first time she started to bleed and it went on the sheets of the bed they were having sex on. and finally "the lovers connect to the price of his dime" meaning that they are "connected" as one. But, "the price of his dime" part I cant seem to figure what it means.

    However, the other lyrics in the song don't seem to match the idea of the couple having sex for the first time, so I am kinda wrong.

    This is what I first thought when i saw the lyrics. I am not really sure what the real meaning is, other than from that verse.

    Another thought I have is that, they know they are about to be killed and they want to have sex before they die, kinda like a "everything I want to do before I die list" but shorted, I guess. Once again I am not 100% sure that I am correct but if someone can find the meaning please submit it.

    I think this song relates to passionate crime. As an example, check out these lines:

    "Sheets of denial.
    The Bullet connects to the price of her crime.
    What have we said,
    Wasn't it their bed,
    What of our presence,
    Haven't we payed penance.
    To the new guns?"

    Her crime was denying him and saying no to this love, as stated by "sheets of denial". Therefore, he came and killed her for "the price of her crime". And I do believe she was threatened by him, as stated on those last lines "Haven't we payed penance / To the new guns?". She didn't give up on what she believed and got killed.

    I personally think this song is about prostitution.

    "Little girl glared
    Sheets of the denial
    The bullets connects to the price of her crime."

    What have we said
    Wasn’t it their bed."

    "Now the little boy sees
    Through the eyes of delight."

    The list of lines relating to prostitution goes on and on.

    this is only my interpretation, I could be wrong.
