This is probably one of my favorite Offspring songs...and I know its not about the genocide of the jews or anything...is it just about how people see things differently then go out and kill that persons belief...i dunno...someone clarify for me.

Don't pay attention to what it means, just listen to it.

Understanding a songs lyrics makes the song like 10x better.

However, I have no idea what it's about. Dexter should do a "dexter on the song" for every song :D

i think it talks about poverty
its like dexter is a poor and he explains rich how does feels,its an anti discrimation song i think, because starv people have kinda eat them to survive, and rich laugh at them with out thinking how they suffer
maybe this will make you understand what im trying to say:
"Our lives run different ways
Through the rain I see you in the sun"

the one who says that is a poor to a rich.

"I bet you‘d only run
If you saw what goes inside"
i think this means"if you were poor you wont support it, so dont laugh at us and have compassion"

I just read the lyrics and I really don't get it. Scotishabbit might be right, but I'm not sure at all.

naah... lyrics are important of course but don't make the song 10x better.

I don't really care about the song. It sound kinda lame for an Offspring song and it's rather dull as it doesn't stick out with the rest.

Because you voted for it dumbass. That's what happens in polls, the options you vote for become italic.
