I Set My Friends On Fire – WTFWJD lyrics

Have you ever heard a thunder bolt voice your name?
Lets all just reach our hands into the dark,
And feel what reaches back!
I stopped subscribing to you a long time ago,
But I still see you, every fucking month!

Don't get the octopus upset,
It may eat itself!
If only we could grow back our privileges.
Tunnel vision. (If only I could touch your face again!)
I am not sleeping;
I'm only resting my eyes,
I'm only resting my eyes!

I didn't think that air could scream in resistance,
Until you, approached me protesting your advancement,
Don't walk any closer, don't you dare, walk any closer!
I forgot who you were...

"Game over"

A dinner party, a last chance,
A love song, a bear dance.
Raising tension on your rhythmic pounding,
I knew you were scared!
Didn't think that I would play dead.
Next time come to class fully prepared.

Reply to my lines like we practiced earlier today.
Oh come on don't be shy!
They'll applause to anything you have to say!

I spy! You spy! With my little eye.
That the desert you've deserted is a little dry.

Drinking the moisture from the air,
I am so dry... Let me get a sip of what you,
Want me to say! I am so thirsty!

Drinking the moisture from the air,
I am so dry... Let me get a sip of what you
Want me to say! I am so thirsty!

Drinking the moisture from the air,
I am so dry... Let me get a sip of what you
Want me to say! I am so thirsty!

Drinking the moisture from the air,
I am so dry... Let me get a sip of what you
Want me to say! I am so thirsty!

Drinking the moisture from the air,
I am so dry...

    I don't know exactly what this song means but it's obviously a song about Jesus, or a being that is above us. It's already evident in some of ismfof's other songs that they don't believe in God or that they at least don't believe in the same God that Christian's do. It sounds like this song is asking, "Does God (Jesus) really exist?"
    "Have you ever heard a thunder bolt voice your name?"
    That lyric questions a Christian's beliefs, or their faith. No one has really ever truly seen their God, so ismfof asks this question.
    "Lets all just reach our hands into the dark,.
    And feel what reaches back! "
    This lyric focuses more of the faith part. Faith is believing in something that you can't see and ismfof is sort of making for (or questioning) faith in general. Essentially, faith really is reaching into the darkness and feeling what reaches back.
    The most obvious thing is of course the name of the song. Wtfwjd, meaning "What the fuck would Jesus do?"

    I love seeing how you people who are so smart and would never fall for "religion" can't even spell or use proper punctuation. It is literally hilarious.
    The only thing remotely "religious" about the song is the title, nothing else in the song can even be referred to as even a faint resemblance of any religious belief. Who believes that god is a thunderbolt? How is moisture even related to any world religion? And even if moisture is referring to religion matt is saying "drinking the moisture from the air,.
    I am so dry. Let me get a sip of what you.
    Want me to say! I am so thirsty! "
    So is he saying he needs religion since he is thirsty? Only an idiot who has a one track mind and constantly wants to prove "religious" people wrong would interpret this song as being about "religion being shoved down our throats"

    Honestly. You guys are wayyy over thinkking the song. Artists for decades write songs about. Nothing, that have no meaning. Look at Kurt Cobain. Everyone thought he was deep and s*t, but you later find out, that he wrote his stuff last minute in the studio and it was s*t. Look at david bowie, people thought his song: the bewlay brothers" was a deep, complex song, but later finding out it was garbage, it was nothing. I think the band is just writing in a comedic, awesome funny way, and you guys are just overthinking and searching for a meaning, but that's not what music is about. Music is about listning and enjoying, not overthinking. Also, another example of artists writing nothing is Lou Reed.
