"Face to the Floor" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
To pick up the tip
Doesn't mean a lot,
Fiddle inside your drawers

If we own the night
Then spread it out
Or pack up
Without a clue

Well
Caused by their own
When by default
Time to vámonos

Like your face
Getting forced
To the floor

Then I got a taste
Of the benefits
Five foot
And change

There's no better way
To hash it out
So let's set up
Your time to fail

Well
Course now the cracks
Should we intervene
I hold this albatross

Like your face
Getting forced
To the floor
And either way
You're way too close
To it all

Pay up, never
Wait 'em out
Clever, Madoff
Take it all
Take it all

(Your, mouth, blessed)

Take 'em all the way
Right back down

(Clue, less, mess)

Pay up, never
Take it all
Take it all

Like your face
Getting forced
To the floor (In a league of your own)
And either way
You're way too close
To it all (You cannot veto the world)

Like your face (like your face)
Getting forced (getting forced)
To the floor (In a league of your own)
And either way (and either way)
You're way too close
To it all

Too close to it all

    Lyric Correctionkaw4f is correct, this song is about Bernie Madoff and people wanting to punch him. The correct lyrics are as follows:

    To pick up the tip doesn't mean a lot
    Fiddle inside your drawers
    If we own the night, then spread it out
    Or pack up without a clue

    Well...
    Caused by their own
    And by default
    Time to vamonos

    Like your face getting forced to the floor

    Then I got a taste of the benefits
    Five foot and change
    There's no better way to hash it out
    So let's set up your time to fail

    Well...
    Course now the cracks
    Should we intervene?
    I hold this albatross

    Like your face getting forced to the floor
    When either way, you're way too close to it all

    Pay up, never wait 'em out
    Clever Madoff, take it all
    Take it all

    Your...mouth...blessed
    Take it all the way...right back down
    Clue...less...mess

    Pay up, never take it all
    Take it all...

    Like your face getting forced to the floor
    (In a league of your own)
    When either way, you're way too close to it all
    (You cannot veto the world)

    Like your face (like your face) getting forced (getting forced) to the floor
    (In a league of your own)
    When either way (either way) you're way too close to it all
    To it all...

    General CommentAt the very beginning, I'd like to point out that he says "I was just thinking".
    Oh, and thrwmyhrtawy, keep your swearing to yourself--it doesn't make you cool.

    My InterpretationThis song is about the situation the lower and middle classes are in and how hard the recession, hits the average citizen.

    My OpinionIt could have a dual meaning of a sexual nature, but probably wasn't intended to. Before I read the lyrics and saw the video I thought it was...well...something rather rough yet sensual. I love the song, the guitar and drums are fantastic.
