Something popped up in me when I was hearing this song by Adele. The song is called "set fire to the rain" and if most of you were like me, you probably wondered "How the hell do you set fire to water?" Then it dawned on me "An exorcism" When someone is possessed by the Devil and holy water is applied to their skin, it'll burn. Break down:
the rain being the rainman aka the devil
and the only thing that burns the Devil is holy water.....
in exorcisms the Priest will off lay his hands on the person or use his thumbs to make a cross symbol on the persons body. Think about that while you sing the song about a lovers possession with the devil.part of the song talks about being with their lover, embracing, hugging, kissing and then she talks about the side of him, that she never knew,
"And I set fire to the rain( Holy water on the devil) watch it pour( holy water) as I touch your face (making the cross symbol onto ones body)"
"Let it burn while I cry cuz I heard IT (satan) screaming out your name"
"and it threw us into the flames" (flames of hell)
"where I felt somethin' die" (soul or happiness or love life)
"cuz I knew that was the last time" (last time satan possessed the person or last time she dated him)
"let it burn" (exorcism)
so what do you think?
