Most artists usually dance around a subject when they’re writing a song. I used to be very guilty of doing it myself. We use metaphors to make ourselves seem really clever? Why? Could it be that we’d like to see who’s following our line of reasoning? Hmmm… Maybe. Often time though the best way to get a point across is to be direct. Unless you’re scenic route is absolutely amazing don’t dally around hoping someone will find your cryptic message.
It might be an American thing to be so indirect. Most foreigners tend to be very blunt and to the point. Especially when it comes to matters of meeting people they’re sexually interested in. European women and men tend to be much more up front in such matters. They’ll let you know when they find you attractive and they’ll let you know when they don’t want to have anything to do with ya. Unfortunately in America a majority of women have the ‘romantic’ notion that you should be wooed constantly. And that you’re points are better off if they’re great scenic detours to getting toward your ultimate goal. Sex.
Wouldn’t you agree that it would be so much easier to deal with someone if you knew that all they wanted was to have sex with you? Wouldn’t your life be easier if you could prevent someone’s advances by simply telling them no way and they’d move on.
The Big Providers have certainly written a song geared towards the direct point of view. I just want to sin. Though it’s not as direct as saying let’s fuck, it’s pretty close. However, it could get mucky because sin can also mean to murder someone. It’s a safe bet that they’re referring to sex because of the male/female roles going on in the story. In the interest of brevity since I’m yapping about it is this. You should get this song just because it’s well played music with a cool groove. Go. Now.
See, direct. Too the point.
