"Down" as written by and Michael/williams More....
I'm down on the floor, there's a man on the door
He won't let me in 'cause he thinks he's the law
He'll give me shout when he's figured it out
Gotta pick up myself, what am I waiting for?
It's never enough, it's never too late
I reminded myself that I'm starting again
You're telling me "never", it should be "whenever"

And while the world is swinging
I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way
Don't hear a word they say
And all the money makin'
Oh, I just want to have a go
I'm always up on time, man
Why can't I be just like the people that I know?

I've got what it takes, I'm bang up to date
You know how it is, I'm all over the place
Kicked in the face, I'm backstage
Everyone here is half of my age
Standing in line, I'm hitching a ride
I'll give it a try but I don't have the time
You're telling me "never", it should be "whenever"

And while the world is swinging
I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way
Don't hear a word they say
And all the money makin'
Oh, I just want to have a go
I'm always up on time, man
Why can't I be just like the people that I know?

Ohhhh...

Na na na na na (etc.)
You're telling me "never", it should be "whenever"

And while the world is swinging
I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way
Don't hear a word they say
And all the money makin'
Oh, I just want to have a go
I'm always up on time, man
Why can't I be just like the people that I know?

And while the world is swinging
I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way
Don't hear a word they say
And all the money makin'
Oh, I just want to have a go
I'm always up on time, man

I'm always up on time, man (Repeat)

    General CommentI get the feeling it's about standing up against repression in any form. I also get the feeling it could be a message about the way the human race is going 'machines all breaking down. The fuel is running out.'.

    It's all falls under the same category to be honest.
