Back door cracked
We don't need a key
We get in for free
No VIP sleaze
Drink that Kool-Aid
Follow my lead
Now you're one of us
You're coming with me
It's time to kill the lights
And shut the DJ...

The song blow is about the Jonestown mass suicide in 2001. When she says "drink that kool-aid", it's referring to when the three people who started it and told everyone to drink it. The powder was poisoned and the three makers of the poisoned kool-aid convinced people to kill themselves by drinking it. When she says "now you're one of us", it's talking about how they convinced hundreds of people to kill themselves. When she says, "you're coming with me," it's talking about how when there wasn't enough people killing themselves, they would go out and take people in and made them drink the poisoned kool-aid. Then she talks about the place blowing up. Yes there were bombs and shootings in jonestown. Dirt covers the floor, it was chaos. When she says we're taking control, that whole part is taking about how those three people took over Jonestown and moved on to Georgetown. The "he" in this song is about George and jones, the towns. If you don't believe me, go look up Jonestown and come back to the lyrics.

This song is about the Illuminati taking over. Glitter is a reference to radiation. Glitter and dirt on the floor after the place blows.

This is about the elite/cult/satanists doing whatever there hearts desire and for everyone else who is beneath them to drink that kool aid and ignore and pretend like all of what they do doesn’t exist... wake up they put everything out there in plain sight, don’t be naive to think that it doesn’t exist..,it does.., very much so

The perfect marriage of cocaine, oral sex, and mass suucide.

This is one of her most complex, and perhaps darkest songs. It contains an allusion to the Jim Jones mass suicide via poisonous Kool-Aid, as well as a hook that could have a variety of meanings, many of which being violent. Essentially, the most direct interpretation that is agreed by most is a cult takeover of a club. Whether or not it involves her detonating bombs, taking and later executing hostages, or simply going crazy on the dance floor is up to the imagination.

Kesha herself said the song is about a cult taking over a club. But that's just a metaphor. Basically it's an attack on elites of any kind (no VIP sleaze). It's a self empowerment message for anyone who is mistreated by others. It's saying you can get the better of your oppressors.

I think the songs about the younger generation being so wild and weird... and trying to make the best out of the little things by being crazy!!!
Were young and were bored...
- Younger generation getting wild cause there bored, don't have much money... and nothing better to do than to go to the club for 10$
It's time to loose your mind and let the crazy out...
- this means when your dancing, you loose your insecurities and everything that would inhibit you from dancing your ass off, and enjoying yourself... letting that crazy out...
We get what we want, we do what you don't....
-This is our generation saying, we're striving for what our heart desires... and we're aren't conforming as much as we used to... I'm not going to say that were not conforming at alll... cause we are, but not as much, we tend to stand out.
