The song (at least as far as I see it) is about anyone who manipulates those around him for his own ends. This mild sociopath can be just about anyone whether he's a politician, a boss or co-worker, or even just if it's somebody you know personally. Like most offspring songs, the lyrics are precise enough to get the idea across, but applicable enough to relate it to different things.

I think the correct term is significance or meaning.

I guess the song goes about lies

i just founded something: i really believe now that "you're gonna go far kid" contains many references from the book "lord of the flies": story of childrens losts in an island, childrens have to organize themselves for survive and one of them is the leader, he turn all childrens against an other (who don't want the authority of this leader) and he manipulate all the kids with a sort of religion.

Haha according to IGN:


Holland screams in a song that mocks the rise and fall of a dance hall legend.
Hot dog, we have a wiener! ;)
