Interpretations:Everything Is Catching On Fire
- I think this is a song talking about everything catching on fire. --Salio-Shally 23:36, June 14, 2008
It's obviously about how everything around him is screwing up, and just overall, going up in flames. --cyberspace95 00:35, April 19, 2006
I think this song is supposed to poke sly fun at the Athens, Georgia sound. There are pretty strong R.E.M. flavors throughout the segment, and especially if Michael Stipe's voice annoys you, it's perfectly clear. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 21:31, September 10, 2006
I think the Giants are just trying to evoke that sort of giddy, cheerful way they tend to describe chaotic, horrible situations. Everything around them (or perhaps somewhere else) is being engulfed in a spreading lake of flames, and they are cheerfully singing along.
Also, I rarely hear anyone say that something is "catching on fire" in normal conversation--it's usually something like "the fire is spreading" or "the flames are spreading". It's almost like something a kid would say. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 02:51, February 14, 2009
This song makes some good Team Fortress 2 Pyro micspam.
This song is about everything, yes I mean everything catching on fire.
Fingertips #1 interpretation
This song is about a guy who’s house is burning down. But he’s glad that his house is burning, because he’s a psychopath.
