Gold on the Ceiling Lyrics
She screams again
Roar at the door
My mind can't take much more
I could never drown in
They wanna get my
They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain't blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

NO DAMMIT !!!!
He is talking about the GOLD on the Ceiling! He's talkin about his girl. She's ridin him and he's lovin the gold on the ceiling!!!! She's cumming in the first of the song... down in the waves... she screams again!
He can't do without - even tho he knows it won't last and someone will steal her...
Listen with your pecker to their songs - NOT your pocket!!!!

Many churches have gilded ceilings. I originally read it as someone wants to takes his gold that he had on the ceiling, but i realized it could be they want to put "get" his gold onto their ceilings. IE the church is taking his gold and using it beautify their church. Eaterofcats has an interesting take though with the vice angle. I was a little confused earlier with the lyric "blood in my eye" and found some people think its god in my eye which seems to fit more with the church theory I presented, saying the church is stealing his money and putting it on the ceiling even though he doesnt believe in God, and fits the vice idea because the church is stealing. However, Bob Dylan wrote the song "blood in my eye" and if thats the line then it seems to support the idea of a lady trying to get to his money because Dylan's song is essentially about a gold digger. But since the line is "Ain't no blood in my eye" it would make more sense that he is well aware of the girl going for his money and he doesn't care, he knows she'll get to it

@eaterofcats - nice try, almost convincing, but it doesn't say 'gold IN the ceiling'. It says 'gold ON the ceiling'
