The Offspring – Let's Hear It For Rock Bottom Lyrics 10 years ago
The song seems to be about someone who mentally isolates themselves from a situation that can't bring themself to face. The more (he) contemplates the situation or looks for symbolic behavioral methods to remedy the situation, the more his own inability becomes apparent. The subject is conscious that his own shortcomings are only self-imposed, and cuts off his own logical self-analysis (observation) in order to further isolate himself. The repeated references to someone telling him that it's all in his head could indicate a significant other or close friend trying to talk him through it. The final refrain seems to be an indication that rock bottom has been achieved - hence he'll never say those words again, but he now has to face the outside world, and decide where to go from there.

The reference to Ivan could potentially be a reference to Ivan H. Scheier (http://e-volunteerism.com/team/scheier.php), a prominent consultant and figure for volunteerism, who advocated putting time to its best use by performing volunteer acts.
