Wiki

Earl discusses his fatherless life and what his life has become since then and the options he has (“Time lapse, bars rhyming heart’s bottomless pit”).

‘Chumming’ is the process of adding blood and guts to the ocean to attract sharks to a specific area. Earl could be hurt about his past with his father and even though his wounds weren’t physical, he was in pain. His pain is clear and this could have attracted ‘predators’.

The song title might also be a reference to the Tyler Craven-Complex fiasco. Craven gave many interviews about the school in Samoa where he and Earl were sent, under the guise that they were friends (chums) in order to get his fifteen minutes of fame. Earl addresses his frustration with this in the second verse.
