    I’m starving, Darling
    Let me put my lips to something
    Let me wrap my teeth around the world
    Start carving, Darling
    I want to smell the dinner cooking
    I want to feel the edges start to burn
    Honey, I
    Want to race you to the table
    If you hesitate
    The getting is gone
    I won’t lie
    If there’s something to be gained
    There’s money to be made
    Whatever's still to come
    Get some
    Pull up the ladder when the flood comes
    Throw enough rope until the legs have swung
    Seven new ways that you can eat your young
    Come and get some
    Skinning the children for a war-drum
    Putting food on the table selling bombs and guns;
    It's quicker and easier to eat your young
    You can’t buy this fineness
    Let me see the heat get to it
    Let me watch the dressing start to peel
    It’s a kindness, Highness
    Crumbs enough for everyone
    Old and young are welcome to the meal
    Honey, I'm
    Making sure the table’s made
    We can celebrate
    The good that we’ve done
    I won’t lie
    If there’s something still to take
    There is ground to break
    Whatever's still to come
    Get some
    Pull up the ladder when the flood comes
    Throw enough rope until the legs have swung
    Seven new ways that you can eat your young
    Come and get some
    Skinning the children for a war-drum
    Putting food on the table selling bombs and guns;
    It's quicker and easier to eat your young

    The marketing of this song, the one clip we were all obsessed with before this released, draws us in under this false pretense of sexuality and heat. Only for Hozier to hit us with yet another moral and political narrative. Drawing people in with the lure of sex (one of the 7 sins referenced in the song ;) ) to send them home with a message about exploitation and the abuse of power is genius. Hozier never ceases to be not only a musical mastermind, but an incredible representative of the people.

    • BlackKoshka23
      BlackKoshka23 6 місяців тому +88

      That part of the song could very much represent the fact that some men are getting older and older, but their partner's ages remain the same (around their twenties), which leads to relationships with a huge power imbalance, and it can be another form of depredation, or "eating your young".

      The song being disguised as something tempting, while if you pay attention you see the true nature of it, is really clever. Shows how you never get the full picture of what is happening unless you've got context.
      It's supposed to represent Gluttony. To me he speaks from a politician's POV. How they keep wanting more and more but are never full. "If there's something still to take. There is ground to break".
      Also the title, which to me means they will screw over younger generations to make themselves more comfortable.
      And then going back to my first point. Politicians are really good at candy-coating their words, and never speak plainly. You have to look at the whole picture in order to form your own opinion. Same goes with the song.

    38 mins straight of just this song over and over as I drove to work. Started with: omg how he says darling, “get some” frick that’s hot.
    Then on the third time I really listened to the lyrics and was like “oh….OH” of course Hozier makes a song about for profit war and my animal brain thinks it’s hot. I’ve now listened to it like 15 times and it’s so powerful. Why spend time raising your kids just to let them die in a war for money when you can just eat your young.

    • Matthew Burckardt
      Matthew Burckardt 6 місяців тому +169

      Ah, yes. The classic Hozier "I'll turn you on, babe, but also, let's recall the horrific implications of unchecked late stage capitalism. All my love to you. Back to being sexy."
      You know, that Hozier.

    • AuditoryOdditor

      I had a very similar reaction to this song. I was turned on by the first part, thinking sexy foreplay, but upon further inspection was rewarded with a deeper meaning.
      Also, my fiancé remarked about the title and looked up the lyrics to prove a point. He read the lyrics and commented how they made no sense. I told him it's poetic.

      The reference is intentional, Hozier is Irish.

    • WeAreAirborne
      WeAreAirborne 6 місяців тому +23

      It's intentional. The song is literally about A Modest Proposal, which was written specifically to call out the English government on its horrific treatment of the Irish. Hozier is Irish and is making the exact same points. As for "seven new ways that you can eat your young," Jonathan Swift recommends that Irish children can be prepared in six ways: "...[W]hether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricasie, or a ragoust." It's not an accident.

    • L.
      L. 6 місяців тому +375

      @Gisele it’s inspired by Dante’s 3rd Circle of Hell, or Gluttony. He uses a lot of food and feast imagery to reference different kinds of gluttony, specifically wealth at the expense of others, war profiteering, etc.
      The “Eat your young” and “skinning children” parts seem to be references to a famous Irish satirical writer named Jonathan Swift. He had an essay called “A Modest Proposal” where he satirically suggested cooking and eating children to solve the famine/poverty in Ireland. Swift suggests different ways to cook the children and use their skin for clothes and stuff, to not be wasteful. It’s an incredible essay but people were outraged by it at the time because I guess they either took it seriously or thought he was mocking the situation rather than criticizing the rich for their exploitation of the poor.

    Hozier's lyricis are unbeatable. They almost always have a melody that sounds sound like you could dance the bed-tango to it but the words in it are nothing to do with that, it's something deeper, darker. And I love him for that.

    I wanna feel the edges start to burn

    I won't lie, if there's something to be gained
    There's money to be made, whatever's still to come
    Get some
    Pull up the ladder when the flood comes
    Throw enough rope until the legs have swung
    Seven new ways that you can eat your young
    Come and get some
    Skinning the children for a war drum
    Putting food on the table selling bombs and guns
    It's quicker and easier to eat your young
    You can't buy this fineness
    Let me see the heat get to it
    Let me watch the dressing start to peel

      A lot of animals eat their young and we see it as this horrific, beastly act (which it is) but the world that we have left our children just creates a long, drawn out version of the same act. I don’t think the song is saying that children would literally be better off not suffering through life- more so that we are no better than the animals who eat their young

  • AJ Basco

    Honestly, the outro for this song that begins around 3:13, marked with that tense piano, is what really speaks to me the most about this song. I usually listen to it over and over again, because something about it strikes me as so... _sad._ I feel this deep wave of secondhand, stoic(?) solemness. The pulls of that violin, too...god, it's all just absolutely enchanting.

You got this upbeat song with such a deep message and you think maybe there's going to be another chorus but he just lets you sit with it for like a full minute with just these sad strings. It all just falls away and you're only left with the message of the song, like pulling out the rug from underneath you.

    My favorite artist ever. Hozier’s music has got me through a LOT. When I felt like I had nobody, I found comfort and belonging in his music and I will always be grateful for how much it has helped me over the years. I’ve been waiting all day to put my headphones on and sit back for my first listen and while I expected it to be amazing, I’m still blown away at how he just can’t miss. Thank you, Hozier, for blessing us with more of your beautiful music❤

    Also Thank you for keeping trans rights in your heart. These days people seem utterly complicit in our destruction, be it blind eye, arrogance, or ignorance all seems lost most days. Your voice is honey to the sore soul these days.

    This makes me want to move my body in a way that is in complete conflict to the words I’m hearing. The meaning I take and take from this song filling a dark void that I hold separate from the hope, optimism and love for humanity.
    Beautiful and conflicting.
    What to do with these feelings, I wonder.

    • Hinrinn
      Hinrinn 6 місяців тому +69

      @Luis Manuel Reséndiz Olvera I've been interpreting it as children, or just the younger generation. The actions of the older generations which are inspired by greed and gluttony are causing the destruction of the younger generation, so it would be "quicker and easier" to just eat them.

    • Bryn McClennan
      Bryn McClennan 6 місяців тому +32

      It's a reference to the satirical article "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift which was written during the Irish Famine (genocide) explaining numerous ways to resolve famine by eating your children.

    • Amy Gray
      Amy Gray 6 місяців тому +12

      As mentioned I also think it could be in reference to Swift's satire (which I had to read in English when I didn't know what satire was, so believed Swift was being completely genuine)
      But (and this could be complete coincidence, and have nothing to do with the song) many animals will actually eat their young when under attack. I remember learning that hedgehogs will eat their own babies because in their minds their children will be eaten anyway by the creature attacking them, and the hedgehog doesn't want to waste a free meal.
      Lots of other species, like harpy eagles, will abandon their young if they can't fend for themselves, because it's easier to just start from scratch and raise a new chick.
      So what Swift was (satirically) suggesting, and what humans do (shift responsibilities onto the younger generations, or try to essentially trivialise their input and views on society) can be found in the natural world
      I'm sorry. This was a very long reply, but I love learning about the natural world.

    I have listened to this song, and read the lyrics so many times now. And this is the very first time I've understood what this line mean: "Throw enough rope, until he legs have swung" . I'm not even gonna talk on it, but when I say my stomach went cold and I got almost painful goosebumps all over my body 😳😅😬💀 This man's mind, I swear...

  • Mousie o’ Auchtermuchty
    Mousie o’ Auchtermuchty 5 місяців тому +11

    So many versions of what this song is about. Wonderful. It means the song is really good.
    IMHO, it appear to be an anti-war song that condemns the sale of weapons and the exploitation of younger generations for the sake of war and profit. The song seems to convey a sense of greed and the desire for power, which in turn leads to destruction and suffering.
    The lines "I want to smell the dinner cooking / I want to feel the edges start to burn" and "Honey, I / Want to race you to the table / If you hesitate" suggest a sense of urgency and competition to acquire resources and power. This is further emphasized by the lines "If there’s something to be gained / There’s money to be made / Whatever's still to come."
    The chorus, with lines like "Pull up the ladder when the flood comes / Throw enough rope until the legs have swung / Seven new ways that you can eat your young," seems to highlight the ruthless, self-serving nature of those in power. The metaphor "eat your young" conveys the idea that the older generation is willing to sacrifice the well-being and lives of younger generations to maintain power and wealth.
    The lines "Skinning the children for a war-drum / Putting food on the table selling bombs and guns; / It's quicker and easier to eat your young" further emphasize the theme of exploiting the younger generation in the name of war and profit, indicating that the violence inflicted upon them is a means to an end.
    In other words, the song appears to be an anti-war piece that condemns the sale of weapons and the exploitation of younger generations. It paints a grim picture of a society driven by greed and a desire for power, resulting in the suffering of innocent lives.

    May I say the Cadence of the song is like the most beautiful thing. Showing and feeling without saying a word that there is always hope. We don't have to live this way. Not everybody exploits each other. You have to work damn hard to do the opposite. Also at 1st I was confused about the song being I hear the 1st stanza on a lot on tik tok. Making it the most sexiest thing. Then you are lured away into a forest of Gluttony and lust. As well as all the suffering that it conducts....its a layer song. I miss stuff like this.
