View Full Version : Kick Him When He's Down

04-22-2005, 11:13 PM
I was just sitting at home one day listening to this song... and then it hit me.

It basically means that the underdog will remain as the underdog. In the chorus it says "When the rain comes, I'll sit home and pray" which means, if someone's giving him trouble, he'll let it ride and hope for the best. The kick hime when he's down part means that the "leaders" "take him down a notch" and show no mercy for him and keep on "kicking" him. He says that he'll put up and fight, which means that he knows he's gonna lose, but will go down knowing that he tried. When it says "little men try but don't get a lot done" means basically that, the "little guy" will try to do his best, but will fail because of the "big guys".

the rest should be easy to figure out.

I would've written more, but it's late and I'm lazy.

Also, I want to here what you think about my theory, and your own...

P.S. I know that there was already a thread made about this, another lazy moment.

One thing I really love about Offspring songs is that they usually always some kind of meaning other then what's on the surface. Kill The President is a good example. As Dexter says live, it's not about assassination, it's about taking control of your world.

Few other bands do that like the Offspring do.

Both Homer and Punk_conspiracy are correct in my opinion.

Yeah, I like songs that actually make you think. And when you understand the song, you have a whole new view about it.
