High school wretchedness and disenfranchisement in general was the impetus for this song. One main theme is how people look to mass media as the great social arbiter or as the vehicle to usher change into their lives.

Ya, I got the six free issues of your magazine
You wanna know the truth my friend?
It didn't change one thing
I saw my family converge and dissipate
I fanned the flames of love
Burned with fires of hate

Oh! Subatomic — feel a little small
Subatomic zero baby
Then you feel like…
Nothing at all….Ya

Ya, I used to stare out the window of the gym at my high-school
Singing "Sara" like Stevie Nicks
But not because it was cool
I knew I had to have a better life
Cos' that one was making me die
That song, it somehow gave me hope
Even now it make me cry

Oh! Subatomic — you feel a little small
Subatomic zero baby
Then you feel like
Then you feel like
Then you feel like
Nothing at all

Ya, I got the hotel record
I got your wrecking ball
I read the romance novel
I got the poster on the wall
I even saw the picture show how life's supposed to be
You get taken to the cleaners
Believe everything you see

Oh! Subatomic—feel a little small
Subatomic zero baby
Then you feel like
Then you feel like
Then you feel like…..
