This is a song written, and performed by my current obsession, Adam Cohen
. I completely adore
it, as I do the rest of his music
, but of course I'm extremely biased. This is what he
said about it:
"The one song not based on personal experience
, it's written to O.J. Simpson, Pinochet
, and all the other tyrants who've gotten what they had coming."
I don't actually like his description of the song. I prefer to apply my own, more intricately detailed context to the lyrics, because his leaves something to be desire
This is actually quite a common phrase that people use in reference to those who think they are invulernable
, that they simply can't be touched. It's used when these people
realize that this just isn't so.
"Look how the mighty have fallen".
