Face Down
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 got 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 got 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!"

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 got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

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 got 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!"

Overall Meaning

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus's song "Face Down" is a powerful commentary on domestic violence and abusive relationships. The song's lyrics describe the pain and fear experienced by the victim of abuse, as well as the emotional and psychological manipulation that abusers use to control their victims. The song's opening lines, "Hey girl you know you drive me crazy / One look puts the rhythm in my hand," set a tone of violent obsession, as the singer obsesses over the object of his desire. However, this is quickly followed by the realization that the object of his desire is in an abusive relationship.


The remaining lyrics are a plea to the abuser to stop his violent behavior and a message of hope to the victim that they can escape the cycle of abuse. The powerful chorus, "Do you feel like a man / When you push her around? / Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?" highlights the cowardice and cruelty of the abuser while also offering support to the victim.


The song's message of hope for victims of abuse has resonated with many listeners and has become an anthem for survivors of domestic violence. The band has also used their platform to raise awareness for domestic violence and partner with organizations working to end abuse.
