The Lyrics

There's only so far that pleas for sympathy will get you, you know.
Watch the way he bleeds, I would have a heart
But I'll explain why I've got no shits to give here
I would not make a joke if he gained those scars in a bad surprise
The fault, he owns, lacked the proper fear

Poked a, poked a shark
He went and poked a shark, poked a shark
The dumbass poked a, poked a shark
That's right, he poked a shark, poked a shark

Inside that face is rows of teeth
The coldest doll's eyes, fearsome as can be
Skin is like sandpaper, have to be crazed
To go agitate one, you reap what you sow, man

Poked a, poked a shark
You went and poked a shark, poked a shark
Had to go poke a, poke a shark
You twit, you poked a shark, poked a shark

Why would you poke a, poke a shark?
Not s'pposed to poke a shark, poke a shark
But no, you poked a, poked a shark
You fool, you poked a shark, poked a shark
Get well, you moron

I will admit, it took me a sec to clock the "Joan of Arc" pun in the song title. Not sure why it's called that, though. I guess the girl they're singing about is looking for answers in the sky and the stars, which'd be roughly analogous to Jeanne d'Arc hearing the voices of angels, but this sort of indie pop style implies Jona is some sort of mysterious waif, not the kinda girl who would stab you repeatedly to protect her king. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it, I dunno.
