"Down Boy" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Brian Chase....
No fame
All there is
All there was
On the second lady
Canâ??t take a cent
Take a cut of that
Kind of ran
Iâ??ll stand kind of bent
Kind of pushed
On that heavy land
Iâ??ll stand for the sake of my friends
I will see him there

Down
Down
Count me down
Down
Down boy
Down
Count me down
Down
Down boy
Down
Down
Down
Count me down
Down boy

The same
Not begin
Not give up
In a better way
Again
Kept the stain
Off his bed
Not to split them off
Iâ??ll stand for the sake of my friends
I will see them there
Well I will see them there
No fame
All there is
All there was
On the second lady
Canâ??t take a cent
Take a cut of that
Kind of ran
Iâ??ll stand kind of bent
Kind of pushed
On that heavy land
Iâ??ll stand for the sake of my friends
I will see him there

Down
Down
Count me down
Down
Down boy
Down
Count me down
Down
Down boy
Down
Down
Down
Count me down
Down boy

The same
Not begin
Not give up
In a better way
Again lost the stain
Off his bed
Not to split them off
Iâ??ll stand for the sake of my friend
I will see him there
Well I will see him there

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl whos fooling around with a friends boyfriend and she has to hang out with both of them and hes kindof all over her and shes telling him to back off hence 'down boy'

    I’ll stand kind of pushed
    Kind of bent
    On this heavy land
    I’ll stand for the sake of my friends
    I will see him there

    shes feeling guilty maybe

    Again
    Wash the stain
    Off his bed
    Not to split 'em up

    she seems to be talking about hiding the evidence, washing the sheets because she doesnt want to get caught.

    General CommentI think the first verse is about maaaaaybe living in someone elses shadow, that there was never realy anything there. She kind of ran away from stuff, feeling pushed. Standing bent, feeling awkward? With stuff just weighing her down. But she'll stand for the sake of her friends, she'll do it FOR her friends.

    The whole 'down boy down' bit makes me think about a dog, someone telling it to stop jumping up and annoying you. Just to sit, stay and leave you alone. Perhaps someone is annoying her, and not listening.. like an animal does. But then the 'count me down' bit confuses me. Like counting her in on something, she's guna do it. whatever it is :s

    Song Meaningis it really about cheating everyone?
    it's too painful to be about watching someone else cheat.
    it's her, she's hurting and it's not her cheating, because i don't know if she ever even got there.
    there is some real submission here
    it's a girl stuck fighting her own pain, her own selfish notions to just keep it together for everyone else, although she mentions friends and says 'not to split them up'

    the count me down, is because everyone does, no matter what, she is just- exhausted there isn't really any way for her to express herself anymore, so she's just done. that's the repetion, it's imposrtant that they didn't do rhyming couplets or anything. just 'down'
    the second lady- it's the lady that was never quite there.
    there is someone else that she can't ever be.
    so she is just beneath, never good enough
    the heavy land is everything
    everything drags her down.
    no one knows, the 'pushed and bent'
    it's like people don't get her posture, so it's a metaphor for her poor mind. she just smiles in front of her friends.
    doesn't want to cause trouble or anything...
    the 'stain' is the most powerful metaphor i think.
    yeah
    pretty bleak.
