    Default Kick Him When He's Down Song Meaning

    I never really got into this song when I listened to Ignition because Dirty Magic and Burn It Up were originally my faves but I clicked on the link in Shank's sig the other day and I can't stop listening to this song!

    So what are the lyrics about?/what is your interpretation of the lyrics?

    I think it's just like with anything or anyone in life. When things are bad in your life, other bad things happen - hence the song title, "Kick Him When He's Down."

    Another words, you're feeling rotten - someone says something to you, something bad happens (work, money (lack of,) emotional issues, etc... so you're kicking him when he's down.

    That's my interpretation of it.

    They want to inform you that it's smarter to kick people that lie down, because then you have time to run away from them. Also; you should kick fat people, because it will hurt them more when they fall.

    It's about how insignificant schmucks make you feel like you're worthless and they prey on weakness and you have to stick up to them or just bear it out, because you'll make it through the whole ordeal

    Yeah, I was thinking of something along the lines of when something bad happens to you lots of small meaningless other bad things become more significant (terrible way to put it I know)

    I think Shank and Oxygene are pretty close to what Dexter may have ben thinking when writing it but I really wish Jojan's was true

    It's about child abuse...but not in the rape sense of abuse! Like, taking a beating from your father or something...I read it somewhere...can't remember where...my brain is working too much to provide sources, sorry!
    A ghost is all that's left, of everything we swore we never would forget. Tried to bleed the sickness, but we drained our hearts instead. We are...we are the dead.

    To me it always was about the 'little man' problem. Being not able to stand up for yourself, keep following others and prefer to getting kicked because it's easier that way. By other same little men as you.
    Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    Kick Him When He's Down and Take It Like a Man are both clearly about sex.
    Listen to Britney Spears:

    -Hit Me Baby One More Time!!!

    Kick Him When He's Down is the second best Offspring song ever. How could you never really get into it!?
