The real beauty of the song is in how it paints three very different scenarios without judgement. It lets you, the listener, draw the conclusions.Through this song, the listener reflects on their own life and empathizes with the experiences of the people described in the song. This song uses, "A little bit of everything," to emphasize how each individual in the song is feeling. For example, the poem starts off with a man attempting to commit suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge. In this case, "A little bit of everything," is represented all the little things that are causing him to feel the need to end his life. Although in that scenario those lyrics are alluding to his depression, "A little bit of everything," also represents hope for individuals. For the next individual described in the poem, he is a homeless man waiting in line to get dinner. For this individual, "A little bit of everything," represents hope because he wants to move forward with his life and forget about the past that brought him here today. This song also uses metaphors to describe the ups and downs of life
Oh, it's a little bit of everything
It's the matador and the bull
It's the suggested daily dosage
It is the red moon when it's fullThis stanza describes how life can be filled with strife and struggle, by comparing two opposites of a matador and a bull and emphasizing anxiety and pain with the line, "Suggested daily dosage". Although this stanza can describe the downfalls of life, the stanza ends with describing life as, "The red moon when it's full." The red moon is alluding to the "Blood Moon" which is a lunar eclipse and something that doesn't happen everyday and is unique, showing that life can have a spectacular moment; you just might have to wait for it. When that moment does come, though, it will be amazing.
Finally, the song ends with how life can be confusing, but there isn't a secret meaning to life. It is through everyday, mundane things that you can find meaning in your life.
