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, Ceaucescu, 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 desired.

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".
