How to Become a Virgin
The Locust Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

They, the people
Done like your dinner

Taping fur to your back
Does not make you a werewolf

Just like dying dads,
Or already dead dads

Chance must be systematically explored
When dressed up like christman beef

Overall Meaning

The Locust's "How to Become a Virgin" is a song with cryptic lyrics that are open for interpretation. However, upon analysis, it appears to be a critique of societal expectations and cliches. The first line, "They, the people, done like your dinner," implies that individuals are being used and exploited by the masses for their own benefit, just as dinner is consumed by people. The next line, "Taping fur to your back does not make you a werewolf," suggests that trying to imitate a certain trait or characteristic does not make one naturally embody it.


The third line, "Just like dying dads or already dead dads," is a morbid comparison that may refer to the relentless struggle to maintain conventional norms and expectations that may be meaningless or ineffectual. The final two lines of the verse, "Chance must be systematically explored when dressed up like Christmas beef," appear to encourage individuals to explore uncharted territories, take risks, and seek unconventional or unexpected paths in life.


Line by Line Meaning

They, the people
All those around you in society


Done like your dinner
Have rejected or disposed of you without second thought


Taping fur to your back
Attempting to mimic or become something you are not through superficial means


Does not make you a werewolf
Does not actually transform you into what you are imitating


Just like dying dads,
Similar to the experience of losing a father to death


Or already dead dads
Or losing a father who is already emotionally absent


Chance must be systematically explored
One must actively seek out opportunities and take risks to find true fulfillment


When dressed up like christmas beef
Especially when attempting to fit in or conform to societal expectations that go against one's true nature
