"Flat On The Floor" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
Not like I need to depend upon anyone
Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

Like I need to defend my own innocence
So what, I did it, I admit it, and I'm pleading the fifth
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

Eight minutes, I'm losin' it a little bit
Five minutes, your description might be starting to fit
Three to go and I'm forgetting all that I've ever known
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl

Not like I need to depend upon anyone
Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
One more anthem for the know-it-all
I won't be standing up for long, I'd better learn how to crawl
Learn how to crawl

In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor
I can't stand up at all, can't see nothing at all
In ten minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

    General CommentNot like I need to depend on anyone
    Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
    "One more" anthem for the know-it-all
    I won't be standing up for long
    I better learn how to crawl
    Learn how to crawl
    In 10 minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor
    Like I need to defend my own innocence
    So what I did it, I admit it, and I'm pleading the fifth
    "One more" anthem for the know-it-all
    I won't be standing up for long
    I better learn how to crawl
    Learn how to crawl
    In 10 minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor
    8 minutes I'm losing it a little bit
    5 minutes your description might be starting to fit
    3 to go and I'm forgetting all that I've ever known
    I won't be standing up for long
    I better learn how to crawl
    Not like I need to depend on anyone
    Since I can see the lack of need for me to be here at all
    "One more" anthem for the know-it-all
    I won't be standing up for long
    I better learn how to crawl
    Learn how to crawl
    In 10 minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor
    I can't stand up at all
    Can't see nothing at all
    In 10 minutes I'll be laying out flat on the floor

    ...these are the CORRECT lyrics, people. And such a great rock song too!

    General Commenti think this song is about someone whose life is going down the crapper. pretty soon he'll hit bottom and will be flat on the floor

    General CommentThis song is about alot of things... the pressing need for self sufficiency in a world rendered 'hopeless'. Prehaps a lack of motivation to get involved in Life... or an overwhelming tendency to self-destruct when it is impossible to make a stand against life's obstacles. The funny thing about songs, is that you tend to read your own world/life paradigm(s) into them.

    General CommentA lot of these lines are wrong...
    "So what I did it I admit it and I'm pleading the fifth"
    "Three to go I'm forgetting all that I've ever known"
    "Can't stand up at all, can't see nothing at all"

    ----------------------
    This is pretty damn self-explanatory. I think it's just about getting so drunk that you wind up on the floor.
    "One More", the anthem for the know it all...

    General Commenthehe. i really like this song. to me its about goong it alone and depending on your self. i remeber the first time iI played the cd to my freind he was expecting somthing more typical of nickle back and then this just blasts through the cd player his fucking jaw dropped.
    its also the one and only song by them that has double kick drum in it. being a drummer, im very pleased about this.

    General Commenti disagree with ic6md, i don't think alcohol has anything to do with it. It sounds more to me like he's being attacked by someone while he's alone and unable to stand up to them. I think it's about knowing when you're beaten and when to back out and 'crawl away'
