Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
You will never understand it cuz it happens too fast
And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass
It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
It's so groovy, it's outta sight
You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
But it makes no difference cuz it knocks you off your feet

You want it all but you can't have it

It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
So you lay down on it and you do it some more
You've got to share it, so you dare it
Then you bare it and you tear it

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
It's sad it happened and it's a shame

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?

What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it

It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it
What is it?
It's it

    General Comment:I actually belive that the song is how people don't understand the meanings behind FNM songs.

    "Can you feel it, see it, hear it today?
    If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway
    You will never understand it 'cause it happens too fast
    And it feels so good, it's like walking on glass

    -If you can't understand what we are talking about, welcome to the club, just enjoy it while you still can!

    "It's so cool, it's so hip, it's alright
    It's so groovy, it's outta sight
    You can touch it, smell it, taste it so sweet
    But it makes no difference 'cause it knocks you off your feet "

    -This is just the part where people describe the FNM sound and style.

    "You want it all but you can't have it"

    -This part is like a child argument, someone knows something, but not really, but still desides to keep "nothing" a secret.

    "It's cryin', bleedin', lying on the floor
    So you lay down on it and you do it some more
    You've got to share it, so you dare it
    Then you bare it and you tear it"

    -Another part where people are tryin' to figure it out, so after awhile, they sit back and try not to focus on the meanings, then someone thinks they have it, and give the wrong example to everyone... because he don't know!

    "It's in your face but you can't grab it"

    -The answers on teh tip of your tongue, you want to say it, but you aren't all that sure it's correct.

    "It's alive, afraid, a lie, a sin
    It's magic, it's tragic, it's a loss, it's a win
    It's dark, it's moist, it's a bitter pain
    It's sad it happened and it's a shame "

    -In this part people just started going crazy on what it means and miss the whole damn purpose!

    "What is it?
    It's it
    What is it?..."

    -People ask Patton "What are you trying to say in your songs? What is it?" And patton just says "It's It" like it means nothing, make up your own answer, and stick with it! BE YOURSELF!!!!!!

    General Comment:extremely cool song
    got the cool "it" theme
    what is it
    the one thing in life we all strive for
    but cant get it all
    but what is it???
    ooo scary!
    or it could be a crap written song about nothing like what bite me thinks
    or something about sexless people like how masturbation can get boring and you want more out of your sexual cravin "you want it all but you can't have it" like not being able to suck your own dick
    "it's in your face but you cant grab it"

    General Comment:ALL RIGHT!!! JoveW's back!!! I've missed you, you weirdo. Everyone look forward to several hundred lines of LSD-fueled, Butthole-surfers-speed-reading-random-edgar-alan-poe-poems-and-insertig-random-giberish-and-swear-words-every-so-often-esque comments, that will eventually be deleted by the system administrators, making any comments involving him (such as this one) redundant.
    Yay!

    General Comment:Maybe it's kind of weird, but it almost sounds like it's about rape.

    General Comment:This song is about drinking Coca Cola despite being disgusted by the behaviour of the corporation and offended by their advertising.

    General Comment:It is love, and how it is distorted and used for evil purposes.

    General Comment:This is a great song. I'm a little caught in between two meanings. I think it might be about how drugs are so powerful and can manipulate people. "It" is the drug and the whole song basically expands on how strong and popular it is. The other meaning I was debating about was that "it" is society and popularity itself. This seems less likely, but applies in the same way. One more thing, I would like to hear other people's input. Don't just look up songs, actually post comments, guys!

    General Comment:Nobody ever posts comments because they either have nothing to say or they're scared to look like fools.
    i think the song has a very strong meaning which is at the same time very open to interpretation; "what is it? it's it" is basically them daring you to think....you have to decide what 'it' is yourself. type thing. i guess it's one of those songs we can all relate to as well.
    im rambling now :P
