Drowning Pool Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Beaten why for (why for)
Can't take much more
(Here we go, here we go, here we go now)

One, nothing wrong with me
Two, nothing wrong with me
Three, nothing wrong with me
Four, nothing wrong with me
One, something's got to give
Two, something's got to give
Three, something's got to give now

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

(Now)
Push me again (again)
This is the end
(Here we go, here we go, here we go now)

One, nothing wrong with me
Two, nothing wrong with me
Three, nothing wrong with me
Four, nothing wrong with me
One, something's got to give
Two, something's got to give
Three, something's got to give now

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Skin against skin, blood and bone
You're all by yourself but you're not alone
You wanted in and now you're here
Driven by hate consumed by fear

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

One, nothing wrong with me
Two, nothing wrong with me
Three, nothing wrong with me
Four, nothing wrong with me
One, something's got to give
Two, something's got to give
Three, something's got to give now

Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor
Let the bodies hit the floor

Hey, jump
Hey, jump
Hey, jump
Hey, jump

Overall Meaning

“Let the bodies hit the floor” is a song by Drowning Pool, an American heavy metal band. The song’s message can be interpreted as a call for a violent revolution or rebellion against those in power, as the lyrics suggest an uprising against oppression. The repeated phrase “let the bodies hit the floor” is a metaphor for fighting back and not backing down, even if it means sacrificing oneself in the process.


The chorus of the song contains the repeated phrase “nothing wrong with me,” which can be interpreted as a form of self-denial or dismissal of the emotional pain and suffering that may be underlying the desire for revolution or rebellion. In other words, the singer of the song is telling himself that he is fine, despite the violence and chaos around him. The second verse hints at the consequences of taking action, as the line “driven by hate consumed by fear” suggests that the rebellion may ultimately result in more violence and fear.

So many people don't realize the lead singer died from an undiagnosed heart condition. His only wish was to buy his parents a home. The profits from his mates making a DVD posthumously did just that. That's some real friends right there.
