"Smash" as written by and Sensible Scabies....
Head over heals I've fit in before
Now I don't want to do it no more
I've held it all in with blood on my face
Built it up man so bad you can taste

I don't slag no one
I don't even judge
Don't give a shit cause I'm not gonna budge
I just want to be who I want to be

Guess that's hard for others to see
I'm not a trendy asshole
I do what I want
I do what I feel like

I'm not a trendy asshole
Don't give a fuck if it's good enough for you
'Cause I'm alive
Smash is the way you feel all alone

Like an outcast you're out on your own
Smash is the way you deal with your life
Like an outcast you're smashing your strife
Head over heals I've fit in before

No I don't want to do it no more
I just want to be who I want to be
Guess that's hard for the others to see

    General CommentI was about 15 when the smash album came out. I played that cassette like crazy. The other day I'm driving my 13 yr old step daughter to the library and she asks if she can pick a song on the MP3 player and what the hell does she pick? Smash! I'm like, "what hell do you think you're listening to?" She explained that she downloaded all my songs on her MP3 player and has been listening to them for a while now. I asked her if she really liked the song and she thought it was bad ass. I turned it up. It's a vicious cycle and I love it. I hate how damn trendy her school is with all the little aeropostale hollister heads posing all the time. I'm trying to teach my kids something besides material gain and mass hypnosis and I can't think of a better song.

    General CommentOk silly heads.
    The first line of this song is wrong here. Its not:

    Head over heals I've been here before,

    its:

    Head over heels I've fit in before,

    (all other instances of this line in the song are wrong too, poo on whoever posted these lyrics :)

    Also the line is not:

    Like an outcast your smashing to strive.

    its:

    Like an outcast you're smashing your strife.
    ...
    Now that we know what the words really are, we can make acurate statements about what this song means, at least what it means to us :P

    This song, for me, is all about not conforming to "popular" ideas. Its all about thinking for, and being yourself. This theme runs through this whole record. And, to some extent all of the offsprings music.. Which to me is somewhat funny, considering "Pretty fly for a white guy" and some of these other tunes :)

    General Commenthehe yea the lyrics are wrong. but this is a great theme to the album smash. i love it. it gets you through those times at school where you feel alone and like no one cares about you so you stop trying to be cool and "with it" and go your own way. even if it means being alone

    General CommentI can't believe more people havn't commented on this song. This is the best offspring song lyrically, plus it's so energy-driven that no one can deny it's awesomeness. "Head over heals i've fit in before, now i don't wanna do it no more." Just break the chain of boring and blande conformity to society and be a unique, independent person in a culture where it's good to be the same, because everyone gets more money. Definately the best song by Offspring ever. Dude, there newer stuff is good too... just not that one song about the prankster with the rapper in the music video... i think they were high that day. Yes!
