Knock Me Down Lyrics

Never too soon to be through

    I think this song IS about Hillel's death, but I also think it's partialy about the pressures of being in a band just about to break into the "big time". Getting carried away with the drug use but not getting away with "FAME" i.e. If you see me getting mighty if you see me getting high knock me down. He's asking Hillel to watch over him so to speak, and make sure he doesn't get too high and mighty like rockstars tend to do. That's just my opinoin. Say what you will but I've been in the punk scene for over 20 years and that's largely unethical to act a rockstar.

    Ehh, man who ever just said, "no it's about Anthony being sober and saying knock me down if you see me getting high" true.
    But you're a fucking idiot, it is about Hillel Slovak, its a love song to him,
    fuckin idiot

    Its an ode to Hillel, if you have read scar tissue you will know because Anthony mentions the song there

    Yeah, he sometimes says 'this is a love song' just before playing it, it's about hillel.
