"Down" as written by Ramon L. Ortiz, Eduardo J. Paniagua, Harold E. Hopkins Miranda and Sergio Jose Curbelo....
I cannot sit back, shed my broken skin
Curse my pride, I react, play yourself again
Up, down and down again
You live in a computer, you're an instant man
Judged and told I can't, cut your shallow hands

How can I please all of your needs?
What do you see when you see me?

I can't reach you
Step back, heard your point of view
Stand up, lay down for no one
Take a piece of me with you
Step back, now that I know you
I know, you're down for no one

I bow down to no one, you like the faith
Stand behind me, find your way
You know you will decide
Move on with me or step aside
I could have lost my life
And I'm made to risk it one more time

How can I please all of your needs?
What do you see when you see me?

I can't reach you
Step back, heard your point of view
Stand up, lay down for no one
Take a piece of me with you
Step back, now that I know you
I know, you're down for no one

I can't reach you
Step back, heard your point of view
Stand up, lay down for no one
Take a piece of me with you
Step back, now that I know you
I know you're down for no one

I can't reach you
Step back, heard your point of view
Stand up, lay down for no one
Take a piece of me, take a piece of me
Take a piece of me with you

    My InterpretationI get the feeling that it is about not sacrificing who you are for the sake of someone else, especially if they are so inflexible for you.

    The down aspect comes about when it is revealed that "they" are down for no one (that is not welling to change for anyone) ... including the narrator. The narrator after learning this has come up with this song to let them know that they won't be made to change for them either!
