"Drop The World" as written by and Mike Burkett....
He won the race the judges concluded
He was the betterman he'd come from victory
A hesitation a one time show or place
His self would not allow he had to be the best

He had denied his urges cause they would of
Drained his strength that battle had been one
With side effects a few
He may have dropped the world
He could not let us down
Dana has gone away
I hope she's in a better place

She aced the test a grade above the rest
Of the class felt the curve a 93%
Was not enough to feed her fix
She needs that perfect score
The endorphin rush she loved
It would opiate her

She had denied all allegations of her loneliness
The battle had been won with scars still under wraps
She may have dropped the world
She would not let us down
Endorphin rush she loved
She may have dropped the world

    General Commentthis song is similar in meaning to "lower". its about over-achievers, over achieving (duuuuh) and if the dont, they, i believe, become suicidal??

    General CommentI believe that its about how people work their asses off to other peoples expectations, living their lives for their fans, families, whomever it may be. Just that doing that will make people unhappy.

    General Commentthis song is musically one of nofx's best i think. not sure what to make of the lyrics though...it'sstrangely positive for a nofx song, unless the whole thing is being sarcastic

    anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentI dunno how positive it is...I think it's about drug addiction to an athlete, and a top student. ti's basically showing how anyone can be affected by drugs. The first part of the song is about how an athlete had to win a big race, so he stopped taking drugs and won. the second part is about how a top student always go the best marks, but it wouldn't "feed her fix" (for drugs). She need more and more endorphin ( a kind of injection drug). She was lonely, and she won her fight with loneliness with these needle injected drugs, "scars still under wraps". she eventually died i am guessing.

    General CommentMy favourite NOFX song and I love tons of NOFX. thankgoditsmonday has an interesting idea on what the song is about. I personally don't know what it is about but it's still one of my favourites.

    General CommentOK, im thinking that this song is about addiction, but not to drugs. its about unhealthy over-achievers, that feel they need to be the best at something to cover up for problems in their lives. endorphins are a natural drug that the body produces when you feel youve achieved something or when you exercise. thats my view.

    General Commentand awesome song and one of my favourites (there is so many) i agree with dsmeathers, it is about over-achievers. sounds great, and like many other nofx songs has much more to offer the deeper you look into it

    General Commentalso i dunno where someone got the idea that endorphins is an "injection drug", it is a chemical produced inside ones body, endorphins naturally block pain signals produced by the nervous system.
    Infact, scientists believe endorphins help people cope with stress, drug, alchohol abuse etc.
    ANYWAY, before i get carried away, this song is about (as stated by dsmeathers) over-achievers, nothing more, nothing less.

    General CommentMaybe the whole 'dropped the world' thing has to with dropping drugs, as in dropped acid.
