he was always there
but nobody seemed to know his name
looking back, looking back, looking back
well, he never left his chair
in fact i think he burnt it to the ground
cause they
always had the floor
never placed themselves aside
to let the man breathe... nobody puts you up nobody puts you down
it's all in your head what they think you should say... look around
she never raised her head
becuase of the scar that ran down her
right cheek
she never grew up
because she turned 29 at age 15
nobody puts you up nobody puts you down
it's all in your head what they think you should say... look around

    General Commenti have never even heard this song, i just wanted to be the first to leave a comment... anyway i'll have a stab at it...
    maybe its about some people who get the crappy life, who are pushed around and not in full control of it, others dictate what you do,or whatever... but then whats with
    "nobody puts you up nobody puts you down it's all in your head what they think you should say... " that makes it sound as though you are a nobody, that noboby gives a crap about you... sorry, im really bad at these

    maybe its just about not living in contentment
