Boys room cherry bomb
Aesop is metaphorically, not literally, saying he’s going to blow up like a boys room cherry bomb. A fireworks reference made later in the song “Saturn Missles” where he again melds his childhood with his adult life seeing the similarities, interjecting current wisdom and regrets. This is a constant theme throughout the entire album.
