Odd conversation

Just had an argument in the kitchen. Myself and James maintain that the Semisonic song "Get a Grip" is a reference to masturbation, Harry is sure that it isn't. I had to print off the lyrics and play the song for them all before they finally agreed with us. Take a look at some of these lyrics and decide for yourself:
Lonely boys and you lonely girls
Here at the end of the lonely world
You're finding out
If there's someone to cry about

Lonely girls and you lonely boys
Playing alone with your lonely toys
Well don't be blue
If there's no one to play with you

Get a grip on yourself you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

When the lights come on and the party's through
There are always a few with nobody to do
Well now don't despair
You'll eventually get there

And meanwhile all of you lonely ones
Here's what to do while you wait for the sun
To rise above
The loneliest kind of love

Get a grip on yourself you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

If you're looking for someone to get a grip on you
First you gotta get a grip on yourself it's true
OK, there is no ambiguity there at all - it's 100% about masturbation. End of story.

Um, anyway....... :o)
