Paramore – Playing God lyrics

Can't make my own decisions or make any with precision
Well, maybe you should tie me up so I don't go where you don't want me
You say that I've been changing, that I'm not just simply aging
Yeah, how could that be logical?
Just keep on cramming ideas down my throat

Wo-o-o-ho-oh

You don't have to believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger... I'll point you to the mirror

If God's the game that you're playing
Well, we must get more acquainted
Because it has to be so lonely... To be the only one who's holy
It's just my humble opinion, but it's one that I believe in
You don't deserve a point of view, if the only thing you see is you

Wo-o-o-ho-oh

You don't have to believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger... I'll point you to the mirror

This is the last second chance
(I'll point you to the mirror)
I'm half as good as it gets
(I'll point you to the mirror)
I'm on both sides of the fence
(I'll point you to the mirror)
Without a hint of regret... I'll hold you to it

I know you don't believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off

Next time you point a finger... I'll point you to the mirror

I know you won't believe me
But the way I, way I see it
Next time you point a finger
I might have to bend it back
Or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger... I'll point you to the mirror

    So, we have two characters. One is Mr. Superiority, and the other is Hayley's character. Mr. Superiority treats Hayley's character like crap, pushing her away, but refusing to let her go - blaming her for everything but not wanting to be rid of her. Basically, he is the one holding on, being completely selfish, and taking advantage of her patience. And then you can see that she's realized what is going on, and that she's incredibly tired of the way he is acting. "This is the last second chance," is like the confession that she's put up with it for so long and she can't just let it go on anymore. She's saying that next time he starts blaming her she's going to say that really he should be blamed. And since he thinks that he is always right, he's "playing God."
    It's the typical, "I'm getting out," scenario, but worded strongly and perfectly.

    Its about her speaking to the listeners. "Because it has to be so lonely to be the only one who's holy It's just my humble opinion, but it's one that I believe in"--shes not "holy" shes a part of Illuminati. If you don't believe me. Google it!. My post prolly wont be up here long, shes a Freemason along with lady gaga, beyonce, jay-z and alot of other entertainers just clearly google: Paramore Illuminati: but don't get me wrong their music is amazing I'm a fan.

    I think that this song has a lot of meaning behind it. It is all about someone thinking that they are so righteous and christian even though they judge people before they even give them a chance. They think they can tell people how to live their life and that their rules are the only thing that matters. It is a great song that many people and myself can relate too :) thank you for creating such an awesome song.

    To me it sounds like someone is controlling her and trying to tell her how to live because everything she does is 'wrong' and it's kind of like she's finally had enough and is saying if you want it done so badly do it yourself because you have faults too. And yeah, she's not perfect but she's trying her best. It's like she's finally realizing she's the victim here and is taking the defensive to say stop or i'll take you down with me. Just what I'm getting =/

    The meaning of this song is that there's someone holding her back. She tries to pursue her passions and do what she wants but instead she's not allowed to. Then she is told that it's all her fault that things aren't going to way she wants. The title "playing god" refers to the person controlling her life. This person could be a number of things. An abusive boyfriend, or even her parents.
