Hello don't you know me
I'm the dirt beneath your feet
The most important fool you forgot to see
I've seen how you give it
Now I want you to receive
I know that you
Would do the same for me

I know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way

For all of your kisses turned
To spit in my face
For all that reminds me
Which is my place
For all the times when
You made me disappear
This time I'm sure you will
Know that I'm here

I know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way

My place was beneath you
But now I'm above
And now I send you a message
Of love
A simple reminder of what
You won't see
A future so holy without me

I know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way.

    I interpret this song as being about being noticed by someone who has never noticed you before, or hasn't thought you weren't good enough for them. Someone beautiful but superficial. Though he sees them for what they are, has been overlooked and belittled by them in the past, and knows they think or have thought he's a loser, he's going to screw them anyway.
    "my place was beneath you, but now i am above. And i send you a message of love"

    My favourite lyric:
    "i know i'm headed for the bottom, but i'm riding you all the way"...
