Love Explosion
Weezer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

Take a load off and bow down
To the others, they love to call you their names
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep
And all the bull that people sling
(Love is an ocean)
It doesn't matter what they sing
(Love explosion)

So jump out, jump out and get your groove on
This one is for you, so come on
Get out your house, girl
And give me a kiss

And all the bull that people sling
(Love is an ocean)
It doesn't matter what they sing
(Love explosion)

So jump out, jump out, get your groove on
This one is for you, so come on
Get out your house, girl
And give me a kiss

Take a load off and bow down
To the others, they love to call you their names




They love to call you their names
They love to call you their names

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Weezer's Love Explosion touch upon themes of fear and paranoia in a world that may not always be accepting of who we are. The opening lines set the scene for the listener - "Take a listen around you / All the people that crowd around in your house / They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep". This creates a sense of uneasiness and highlights the fear of being surrounded by people who may not have our best interests at heart. The song then advises the listener to take a break, to "take a load off and bow down to the others".


The chorus of the song, with the repeated line "Love explosion", brings a positive energy into an otherwise dark song. The message is clear - love can overcome anything. The lyrics suggest that it doesn't matter what negative things people say or do, as long as there is love in the world. The song encourages the listener to be themselves, to jump out and get their groove on, to get out of the house and share love with others. The closing lines of the song bring us back to the idea of fear and paranoia, as the lyrics repeat the line "They love to call you their names". This reminds us that even in a world full of love, there will always be those who seek to hurt us.


Overall, Love Explosion is a song about finding hope in the face of fear and love in the face of hate. It is a reminder to be true to ourselves and to seek connections with others who share our values and beliefs.
