"WTF?" as written by and Damian Kulash....
I've been trying to get my head around,
What the fuck is happening?
I'm trying to make some sense out of
What you're doing with my head.

It's like a skydive
Or getting high
The kinda thing'll maybe kill you.
It's like I'm eye-to-eye
With a wild lion.
Oh,
I don't know what to tell you.

There's just this thing about you.

So maybe you can help me clear this up,
Cause me myself I just can't tell.
Are you some kind of dark sorcerer
Am I under some kinda of spell?

'Cause I could go on for days,
Just crazy about it, oh,
You're so respectable,
A little animal.

It's like a skydive
Or getting high
The kinda thing'll maybe kill you.
It's like I'm eye-to-eye
With a wild lion.
Oh,
I don't know what to tell you.

There's just this thing about you,

So are you gonna tell me what comes next,
Or am I just supposed to know?
Do I make my own decisions here,
Or am I under your control?

'Cause I been like this for days,
Just crazy about it, oh,
And it's startin' to get, you know,
A little uncomfortable,

It's like a skydive
Or getting high
The kinda thing'll maybe kill you.
It's like I'm eye-to-eye
With a wild lion.
Oh,
I don't know what to tell you.

Do you think I'm out of line?
Do you think I'm out of line?
Well maybe it's fine, maybe it's alright it's like I'm eye-to-eye with a wild lion,
Yeah I don't know what to tell you.
I don't know what to tell you.

There's just this thing about 'cha

    General CommentLove the odd time, early '70s psychedelia sound, and super high pitch solo. Awesome song.

    General CommentI feel like this song resembles how descartes views the "evil genius" in his first meditation before he found his foundation..

    descartes began his meditations by doubting everything he knew.. even his current state of awareness or existence all together.. he then formulated that perhaps there was an evil genius deceiving every sense he has (think the matrix).. ehh just a thought maybe im looking wayyy to into it.. id rather it have a cooler meaning so even if they didn't purposefully make it about that it goes well..

    General CommentI think he says at the beginning "I've been tryin' to get my head AROUND what the fuck is happening." Also, "I've been tryin' to make some sense OUT OF what you're doin' with my head."

    Anyway, incredible song, and I'm so excited for the new album :) OK Go never fails to bring the heat. They're my favorite band, and they just keep getting better without ever putting an album to shame.

    General CommentGreat song, pretty good album. Can't say I was expecting much less when Dave Fridmann was announced as the producer. Just about everything he touches is golden..

    General CommentI totally agree with "ContemporaryDecayEmbodiment" This song's strange, off-beat rhythm, right behind such a fuzzy/dirty guitar sounds fucking amazing! It's got such a trippy and mellow groove to it. I give this song a 5 star rating!

    Now, as far as the song meaning goes... To me, it's as if he's so drawn/captivated/gravitated toward this chick, but he knows for certain that she's just fucking dangerous! But he's lured to her and just can't help but dig her anyway. He's saying that being with her is extremely exciting and could possibly be life threatening as in when he compares her to "skydiving," "face to face with a wild lion," or even "getting high." But he wants to give her a try anyways, because "There's just this thing about you"

    Great song. And the video is pretty cool as well.

    General CommentI think that the second "The kinda thing'll maybe kill you." should be "The kinda thrill that could just kill ya"
    And the the word 'thing' should be 'thrill' in all of them.
