1) Let's hear it = clap hands in appreciation?

2) Wasting away the word's right in front of me

waste away = not giving its value or enjoying?

3) Wasting away, we're hitting rock bottom

waste away = to gradually become thin and weak

4) wish away?

a. forget or pretend something does not exist
b. detach yourself from reality

(urbandictionary.com)

5) "call"

What is the definition in the song? phone call, call attention, bring back ot reality...

6) wasting away, we're going down together

waste away??? I ran out of thought here.

7) Who's Ivan?

haha just kidding.

Thanks, Guys!

Free?

Superdope, based on Dexter's words, told me that Rock Bottom is about people who go nowhere in life and are perfectly fine with that.

1. I'm not sure, my version is that "Lets hear it" means just "Lets hear it".
2.3. He's wasting his time, life, he reached the rock bottom, but he thinks that "All in all it's not so bad".
4. I think both a and b.
5. To me it seemed a phone call, but I'm not sure about that too.
6. He and his two friends (one of them probably named Ivan) waste their time together going nowhere.

"TheOffspring demands his listeners to hear a song about hitting depression"?

Yeah, or cheer, like "Let's hear it for the Offspring!"

2) Wasting away the word's right in front of me

He's wasting his life and the world is passing him by. He sees everything that he can be but is just too lazy to try.

3) Wasting away, we're hitting rock bottom

Just becoming a bigger and bigger loser with no job, no money, no goals in life.

4) wish away?

Like wishing time away, but mostly in this case it means just constantly wishing for a better life instead of actually doing anything about it.


5) "call"

I thought it was just a phone call.

6) wasting away, we're going down together

Same as above, only now he's apparently taking someone else with him.
