Hey girl you know you drive me crazy
One look puts the rhythm in my hand
Still I'll never understand why you hang around
I see what's going down

Cover up with make up in the mirror
Tell yourself it's never gonna happen again
You cry alone and then he swears he loves you

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you wait around forever you will surely drown
I see what's going down

I see the way you go and say you're right again,
Say you're right again,
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt!
She said "this doesn't hurt!"
She said "I finally had enough!"
X2

One day she will tell you that she has had enough
It's coming round again

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I'll tell you my friend, one day this world's going to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt!
She said "This doesn't hurt!"
She said "I finally had enough!"

Face down in the dirt!
She said "This doesn't hurt!"
She said "I finally had enough!"

    it just says that men who beat on women aren't mean they are cowards who have to prove to them selves they are " strong" when i dont think its strong to beat a woman it retarded. you hit someone about half as strong as you and expect them to just take it day in and day out.

    urmom1996 is right.
    its that a girl is in an abusive relationship and she may keep coming back to him now but soon she will stop going back to him and when they sing this they are basically telling the guy that she is going to leave him soon if she keeps this shit up.

    this song well i think is about this guy who is abusing this girl that obveously the lead singer likes and the girl covers up her pain with make up and says he didn't mean it and won't leave cause she wants to be with him i guess so the nice guy(lead singer lol) goes to her bf and tells him every action you do has a consiquence and one day she will just say nope i have had enough of this crap i'm leaving and the lead singer is encouraging her to do so

    I think this song is about a boy who likes a girl, but she has a boyfriend. He is confused as to why she still has relations with that boyfriend when he's so abusive and controlling and abuses her. He tells the boyfriend that one day she's going to turn her back on him, and at the end of the song where it says "Face down in the dirt, she says this doesn't hurt, she said I finally had enough" is where she DOES turn on him.
