"Oh My God" as written by and Kate Marie Nash....
Find a cure
Find a cure for my life

Put a price
Put a price on my soul

Oh my god
Oh you think I'm in control
Oh my god
Oh you think it's all for fun

Find a cure
Find a cure for her life

Put a price
Put a price on her soul

Oh my god
Oh you think I'm in control
Oh my god
Oh you think it's all for fun

Find a cure
Find a cure for my life

Put a price
Put a price on my soul

Build a wall
Build a fortress around my heart

Oh my god
Oh you think I'm in control
Oh my god
Oh you think it's all for fun
Is this fun for you?

    My InterpretationI think this song is about IBS. Anyone who has IBS would understand.

    General CommentI might not have realized it if it wasn't for the fact that it's on the trailer for It's Kind of a Funny Story, but I think this song is about bi-polar disorder. Definitely not drugs or promiscuity, but I can see how the lyrics apply to that. The part that stood out to me the most was the line "pin a smile on my face" which is just so perfect when you think about the pills doctors and psychiatrists prescribe for things like bi-polar disorder and ADHD.

    The reason I love this song is because when I was a kid I had anxiety and eventually depression, but I wasn't diagnosed for years. So when I would have an anxiety attack my parents would think I was just being dramatic or trying to get my way ("oh you think it's all for fun") and yell at me to stop it when I obviously didn't know how to ("oh you think I'm in control") or even laugh at me and get out the camera. Even when I finally figured out what was happening to me, I didn't like the choices ("cures") offered to me as ways of dealing with it. I was told that all I could do was take a variety of pills to manipulate my emotions and make me feel like a different person ("pin a smile on my face...build a fortress round my heart"). I'm sure medication might work for some people, but it wasn't right for me. Even after I was diagnosed, my family still didn't take me seriously. So the best thing about this song is the indignant tone it's sung in. It sums up my entire childhood and all of its frustrations.

    And even if I've completely misinterpreted this song, I still love it. And if I haven't misinterpreted it, then it's good to know I'm not the only one who has felt that way.

    General CommentOH MY GOD!

    She doesn't have a disease or sickness (definitely not IBS), it's not about drugs, and it's not about sex.

    She clearly puts up a front and keeps her true feelings inside of her. She acts like she is in control by putting a smile on. She gives her friends and family the idea that she is ok and she knows what she's doing with her life (control) and has no worries, but this is all false.

    General Commenti am a red blooded male that understands this song...or at least he thinks he does.....
    I dunno. I just cant help thinking there is a 'nevermind' slant. Even if it is totally unintentional! whatever it is....it sounds good.

    My InterpretationI think this song is clearly about having a mental disorder.
    oh you think im in control
    and u think its all for fun. is people not understanding what shes going through
    i have bipolar disorder and this is how i feel.

    and find a cure for my life
    i think means find a cure for her insanity.

    idk thats what i got out of it.
    i dont think its being slutty or a heavy partier.

    the way her voice comes across in the song sounds painfull and sad. frustrated almost. idk i may be wrong.

    General CommentI have bipolar disorder and I can honestly say that I totally identify with this song. Even my mom thought I was faking things after a while.
