Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We'll fall asleep, and take a peek indoors
i will take whats mine, you take whats yours
your playing with loaded gats and a gun in the drawer
but now why dont you even the score

its boink, boink every minute
sucker

so keep it in your pants, boy
sucker

what makes you think your my only
lover
the truth kinda hurts dont it
mother

Sucker...

you see my fingers twitchin, and my nervous glance
i thought you were bluffin, but you saw my hand
lost in phony laughter and three mixed drinks
its time to take a chance, i think

its boink, boink every minute
sucker
sucker
so keep it in your pants, boy
sucker
sucker
what makes you think your my only
lover
the truth kinda hurts dont it
mother

The lyrics to Peeping Tom's song "Sucker" describe a situation of deceit and mistrust between two lovers. It appears that the two individuals in the relationship have been playing games with each other and hiding their true intentions. The phrase "take a peek indoors" suggests that they are not being truly open and honest with each other. The singer wants to "take what's mine" and encourages the other person to "even the score," implying that they have both been dishonest in some way.


The chorus, with its repeated use of the word "sucker," reveals the singer's frustration and contempt for the other person. The lyric "what makes you think you're my only lover" suggests that the other person may be cheating on the singer or at least not being completely faithful. The singer also hints at their own duplicitous behavior with lines like "lost in phony laughter and three mixed drinks" and "you saw my hand," indicating that they may have been trying to deceive the other person as well.


Overall, the lyrics to "Sucker" portray a relationship characterized by deceit, mistrust, and anger. The repeated use of the word "sucker" reinforces the singer's resentment towards the other person, while the imagery of loaded guns and fingers twitching suggests a tense and potentially dangerous situation.

You know what it is? he doesn't care what anyone thinks. that's why. he makes albums that he would want to listen to, first and foremost. he just happens to be so talented he is almost unlimited in his potential.

Spot on. As a kid, I thought this was how people made records. Once grown up, I was increasingly disappointed. We are being lied to by most "artists."

If you are not feeling what you are doing, you shouldn't do it. Only do it if you can feel it.

@Requiemslove That guy is Mike Patton, you may remember him from Faith No More, but his musical credits go in all directions and genres. Probably one of greatest rock singers in the past 25 years, but not afraid to experiment and collaborate with various artists. A modern day musical reanaiisance man indeed!

Steve Prescott

One of the greatest rock singers period! Not just last 25 years (actually over 30 - "The Real Thing" came out in '89!). Mike's also one of the least mainstream so he'll never get that credit out in the open but he's a tremendous talent - pushing boundaries and stepping on genre norms daily. Truly one of a kind.

Tobias Knudsen

Two of my favorite artist of all time. I didn't know that this was really Norah Jones, had my suspicions though :D

CGolds235

ChienJaune01

It's like a sexy crossover between Portishead and Fantomas' Director Cut. Awesome.
