I always took the lyrics of this song to mean that we need to be with God all the time, not just when we need him. This is not what I would call an atheistic song. Actually the opposite. Imho

I love this song. Regina, you nailed it. When we are most vulnerable we know to count on a God whom we desperately seek. I am bowled over by your insight and the beauty of these lyrics. Thank you.

Btw @zoniax there is VERY MUCH a God that loves and cares about you. In fact, so much that He saved you from your sins so you can go to heaven by sending His ONLY Son, Jesus, to die for Y-O-U. :-) My God is awesome

Ooooookai…

I love my God, but he doesn't grant wishes like *snap* that. I mean, he could… but He's not a 'genie' or a 'Houdini' for your little lamp you rub 3x to get a wish. This song is almost offensive, but I don't know what to take offense about… probably the false impression Regina makes Him.
But, @eduale13 you are right if I read your comment right. We never pray when we're on the proverbial 'mountain' only when we're in the 'valley' Oh, well. I pray for a revival in the blessed USA ��

*totally not laughing at how this song is atheistic*

This truely shows how selfish human beings are.
We laugh at "God" when our lives are wonderful and amazing.
But we come crawling to "him" and suddenly expect him to save us when things go wrong.
We pray when we feel like it. D:
Sorry if this offends any of you.

I don't laugh at god because there is no god.

If you want a happier life you'll enjoy, accept that and live the only life you'll get.

She comes out and says the truth about life, not the sugar coated version you hear in overly optimistic Disney movies and stuff.

This song is so sad, yet so true. This is life. And Regina Spektor says deal with it.

Whenever I hear this song.. This is life.... I just can't... No words...

I saw an amazing scratch project that relates this to warriors by Skystar (dont remember the name is laughing at Starclan). This song is just so, so, so sad. But amazing. "That the last thing they will see is someone's eyes filled with hate..." O god I'm going to cry now.

This song is such is so deep while still sort of quirky, like the majority of Regina Spektor's songs. She's extremely talented.

Im Catholic and love this song. Its sort of nice to think that whenever we seem to be laughing at anything God related he is laughing with us because He finds it funny too :)

I pretty much agree with below comment. People make fun of God, get angry at Him, think of Him as a genie, and never really connect with him-unless they're in a horrible situation.
Report as inappropriate
The song title is Laughing With. I think that means the main point of the song is made in that last line. People tend to only reach out to God when they are in a really terrible situation. But they should always reach out to Him, and be grateful to Him in good times. Do that, and you will find yourself laughing with Him when times are rough, for He will be there for you, as you were there all along, acknowledgin g Him.

I don't think people should get religion from pop music, but on a strictly human level, these lyrics make an excellent point.

But... Flight of the Conchords came on right after... :(

I love God, follow his word, and am his friend. His name is Jehovah, and I talk to him all the time. I had no regrets or had Crap feeling: 1000 (guilt), because I search for his guidance constantly, not only when I want or need something. But for those who this song applies to, I bet you have a "crap feeling" of a million. Just how guilty do you feel?
Report as inappropriate
this so just pretty much says how people joke about God, but when it all comes down to a moment of pain or weakness, we suddenly rely on him and we don't "laugh at Him" in those moments. I'm not religious, but this song really speaks about how selfish and self-centere d humans really are.

@ Sarah Madden,
She's pointing out all of the things that happen in real life and how people think just wishing and hoping will make everything better. She's pointing out that it takes more than just wishing doesn't get you what you need and that if you are the type to practice a faith, you need to participate and not only believe (if you do) when there's something to gain.
Report as inappropriate
I can't figure out if she is cursing God or just pointing out that He isn't someone who just magically gives you want you want when you ask. Who do you think?
