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...

    but what about "dont get the octopus upset
    it may eat itself" ?
    and then the "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" ?

    i am not to sure but if you think about the first part could be about somebody dying
    and not believing it hence

    ''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''

    the part about if only i could touch your face again might be there ding wish
    and the i am only resting my eyes could be that they wont admit that they are dying

    and the part after that could be that they don't want the grim reaper to get closer
    and the game over part is about the grim reaper taking them

    and the rest is about them dying but i am not to sure why its called what the fuck would jesus do

    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?"
