Shhhh! Golf is On
Hot Mulligan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can't stand the fact I know where you are
Ten years, I still try to spot your car
When driving past your house
The taste of iron in my mouth or

The shame that I have to look like mom
Disgraced, I may be my father's son
You're still too close to me
I swear at night I feel you breathe

There's nothing special in the water here
There's no reason you should feel the need to stay
You've ruined everything you touch 'round here
Let the locusts have your home
They'll feel the same
And I'll feel the same

Re-check, change
Re-check, change

You're tired at roll call
You should learn to play hooky from me
It's total recall
I can hear how you cried when it came time to leave

Re-check, change
Re-check

There's nothing special in the water here
There's no reason you should feel the need to stay
You've ruined everything you touch 'round here
Let the locusts have your home
They'll feel the same
And I'll feel the same
Oh, feel the same
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh oh oh

Re-check, change
Re-check, change
Re-check, change

There's nothing special in the water here (re-check)
There's no reason you should feel the need to stay (change)
You've ruined everything you touch 'round here (re-check)
Let the locusts have your home (change)
They'll feel the same
And I'll collar it out

Your pictures of me
Color it out
Thought I stole every one when we left
Hollow it out
Your house in the weeds




Hollow it out
Hope it sinks into corn fields

The singer expresses their frustration and inability to move on, highlighting a deep-rooted bitterness. The opening lines convey the singer's obsession with their ex's whereabouts, indicating that they are still mentally tied to their past. The mention of spotting the ex's car and feeling a metallic taste in their mouth suggests a mix of longing and resentment. The line "The shame that I have to look like mom" hints at a troubled family history or some inherited traits that contribute to the singer's feelings of disgrace.


The chorus reveals the singer's anger towards their ex, expressing a desire for them to leave and letting the destructive forces, symbolized by the locusts, take over. This shows a willingness to see their ex suffer as they have caused pain. The repetition of "re-check, change" throughout the song may connote a plea for reinvention or a call to break free from the patterns that keep them emotionally tied to their past.


As the song progresses, the lyrics shift to include memories and moments shared with their ex. The imagery of tiredness at roll call suggests a sense of conformity and the expectation to show up for the relationship, even when feeling exhausted. The line "I can hear how you cried when it came time to leave" offers a glimpse into the pain caused by the separation, hinting at a mutual struggle to let go.


In the latter part of the song, the lyrics convey a lingering attachment to the past. The mention of pictures being colored out and their house sinking into cornfields portrays a desire for eradication and dissolution. These lines suggest a longing for closure and the hope that by letting go of the physical remnants of their past, they can finally move forward.

Your house in the weeds
Your residence, neglected and overrun by wild plants


Hollow it out
Emptied and devoid of meaning


Hope it sinks into corn fields
I hope it eventually becomes buried in vast fields of corn
