It's impressionistic

You're there, you're having a pop tart for breakfast. Why? In a hurry, lazy, depressed, or just ran out of anything healthier?

Which leads directly into what's your mission? It's morning, it's a new day, wtf u gonna do with it

Pop tart is the name of his boyfriend, and he's asking "hey, what are we doing today? wanna go suck dicks?"

"He makes you miss him more than home

You love him, you love him more than this
You love him and you cannot, you can't resist
You love him, you love him for yourself
You love him and no one, no one else"

I always assumed that Billy is singing about his one night stand with Michael Stipe

what??? theres nothing more manly, more testosterone driven than the noble sport of wrestling.

two bulging dude, lathered up in sweat and foam and froth, straining and shoving with all their might at each other, the glistening bodies gyrating with ponderous grace, the spandex tightening and stretching over the expanding biceps, triceps, quadriceps, pecs, and buttocks... I could go on 4ever.

dressing coffins on his past lovers, like putting them in coffins symbolically... like she's so awesome or whatever all those regrets of the past are buried

holding back the fool again - stopping myself from doing/saying anything
holding back the fool pretends - pretending everything is fine and nothing matters
i forget to forget nothing is important - slipping out of that and having feelings and knowing things really do matter when you are trying hard to be stoic and act like everything is fine

honestly really reminds me of my own childhood around like 10-12

Pop Tart just seems like a silly nickname for the subject of the song

geek usa is just a bunch of nonsense that vaguely sounds like could be real idioms. in fact it's pretty impressive in that way. they sound familiar even though afaik billiam made them up

shot full of diamonds
cast into the world with apple eyes
the hiss that we had missed

There's an old quote where he tries to explain the way he writes lyrics, and he says something to the end of he finds literal storytelling to fall short of conveying what he wants. Sometimes it's not enough to say it fucking hurts, and that's essentially why he uses abstract phrases and imagery.

Very reminiscent of the Geek lyrics. Like he's trying to explain these things he is feeling and is coming up with all these "idioms", but ultimately fuck it cause WORDS CANT DEFINE WHAT I FEEL INSIDE CAUGHT WITH THIS VIRUS OF MY MIND I GIVE IN TO MY DISEASE

Pop as in pop star, tart as in the old term for a sexy gal. Remember that Machina was when he felt he "couldn't compete with the Britneys of the world". So he's literally asking the people who're kicking his ass in sales what they, as entertainers, have in common and what they're supposed to be doing.
