"Waitin' For Superman" as written by Michael Ivins, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd....
I asked you a question
But I didn't need you to reply
Is it getting heavy?
But then I realize

Is it getting heavy?
Well, I thought it was already as heavy as can be

Is it overwhelming
To use a crane to crush a fly?
It's a good time for Superman
To lift the sun into the sky

Because it's getting heavy
Well, I thought it was already as heavy as can be

Tell everybody waiting for Superman
That they should try to hold on best they can
He hasn't dropped them, forgot them or anything
It's just too heavy for Superman to lift

    Song MeaningWow im suprised no-one has commented this

    i think that this song is like saying that superman is God, he tries but he cant do it all
    i know God doesnt exist its a myth, but still.

    they are proving that people are idiots for waiting for superman/"god" to arrive and help
    also the heavy bit to me is like the ammount of pressure that he is under. not actually phisically.

    meh its a good song, a bit different but still awesome.

    FIGHTSTAR FTW !

    My InterpretationFightstar didn't write this song, you douche. It's a cover of a Flaming lips song. You could say that the song is about God. Perhaps the member of the Flaming lips that wrote this felt let down by God, but it's not originally from fightstar. Perhaps however Charlie wanted to cover the song because he feels the same way, maybe he just likes the song. Who knows.

    But besides from that God is real, from a Christian's point of view, people like you just have no idea. There is a feeling you have when you know God is near. The holy spirit is a lot deeper than a little conscience thing you feel, perhaps to make you feel better about death at the end of life. He's here, and you can't argue against that, because you don't know the feeling. You can ask any Christian and you'll get the same response, when you have the holy spirit, there's no doubt in your mind that there's a God here.
