    wet and quick boy, big pill, poison rats

    Hi, I'm trying to understand the meaning of the song, please help me.
    i know that lyrics can mean something different to everyone of us; nevertheless I'd like to know a native speaker's opinion.... I need to understand the structure of the sentence and the meaning of some words

    thanks.Rip


    1)wet: very good or weak ?(I found both meanings on the web)
    2) diving to deep for coins? (always looking for money?almost ruined because of money?)
    3) All of your street light eyes (are they the street lamps along the roads?)
    4) the cops closed the fair? ( is it an idiom?)
    5) stole me: I stole ?

    6) big pill? (does pill mean bald head? or bullet or a problem?)
    big pill looming - big pill stuck going down??!!!

    7)poison rats: poisonous rats or poison for (to kill) rats?
    8) warm: does it referes to the rats or to the poison?
    9) who is pissing? the speaker or the rats?

    10) And clean blood of Christ mountain stream? completely unclear
    Who cleans the blood?
    of Christ? does it referes to the blood, I mean christ's blood, or to the stream " Christ's mpountain stream?
    I haven't the faintest idea. I

    I was a quick wet boy, diving too deep for coins
    All of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys
    Then when the cops closed the fair, I cut my long baby hair
    Stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere

    Have I found you
    Flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, american mouth
    Big pill looming

    Now I'm a fat house cat
    Nursing my sore blunt tongue
    Watching the warm poison rats curl through the wide fence cracks
    Pissing on magazine photos
    Those fishing lures thrown in the cold
    And clean blood of Christ mountain stream

    Have I found you
    Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding or lost you, american mouth
    Big pill stuck going down

    It's the rats that are pissing on magazine photos. (He might have to wash that pill down with something.)

    A lot of it is pretty mysterious.

    Hi, Ronbee are all other questions an enigma for you?
    Please let me know because you're a native speaker and if you can't answer my questions I think I won't be able to find a solution by myself, unfortunately...

    Re: wet and quick boy, big pill, poison rats

    I have more questions than I do answers.

    A boy diving for coins would certainly be wet, but I don't see how he could dive too deep (as a pearl diver might).

    The "street light eyes" might be eyes that are big. (Perhaps the person with street light eyes is curious.)

    He stole the map.

    The poison rats are warm, and they are poisonous.

    I don't know about the rest.

    (Hm. Maybe I did have a few answers. )

    Is this a rap song? It sounds to me like this:

    I was a quick (wet) young boy, as in the expression "wet behind the ears" indicating youth and inexperience.

    Diving too deep for coins............... getting into deep trouble looking for trying to make $$$
    All or your street light eyes........ etc.......... there is so much light that all eyes can see what he/she is doing.
    Then when the cops etc............. means that police closed down the fair, or the activity that was going on.
    Cut my long baby hair........... means I left my childhood behind.
    Stole me a dogeared map.............etc. Means that he/she tried to find the other person everywhere.

    At least that's how I would interpret that part of it. Most of it is pretty difficult to figure out.

    I am not a teacher.
