Reanimator
Joji [feat. Yves Tumor] Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The sun is not the brightest thing
The choir sings to an empty world of finer things
Even though it burns, you drown and sink
You know I am

Washing over you
Washing over you
It's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good
You can do this all night, it's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good
You can do this all night, but it's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good




You can do this all night, but it's not up to me
But it's alright, does it make you feel good all night?

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Joji [feat. Yves Tumor]'s song Reanimator speak to the paradox of life's difficulties and the comfort found in surrendering to them. The first line "The sun is not the brightest thing" suggests that even the most beautiful and radiant things can have their flaws and faults. Then the second line "The choir sings to an empty world of finer things" suggests that there may be beautiful things around us, but they are empty and meaningless if not appreciated. The next line "Even though it burns, you drown and sink" is yet another paradox where the things we desire and admire can hurt us in ways we can hardly comprehend. Despite all of these difficulties, the singer assures the listener that they will be there, washing over them and providing comfort.


This theme of surrender and comfort is echoed in the chorus where the singer admits that they may not have control over the situation, but it's alright as long as it makes the listener feel good. The repetition of "You can do this all night, but it's not up to me" reinforces the idea of submission to the difficulties in life, while the question "But it's alright, does it make you feel good all night?" suggests that finding comfort and surrendering to life's difficulties may be the key to true happiness.

[Verse: Joji]
The sun is not the brightest thing
The choir sings
To an empty world of finer things
Even though it burns, you drown and sink
You know I am
Washing over you
Washing over you

[Chorus: Yves Tumor]
It's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good
You can do this all night, it's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good
You can do this all night, but it's not up to me
But it's alright if it makes you feel good
You can do this all night, but it's not up to me
But it's alright, does it make you feel good all night?
