This is a great lyric from one of my favorite bands, Dream Theatre.
It means to humble oneself or admit fault before one’s pride or ego causes a downfall or negative consequences. This advice can be especially relevant to teenagers who may be experiencing conflicts with friends or family members or facing difficult situations in school or their personal lives.
Teens may be reluctant to admit their mistakes or ask for help due to feelings of embarrassment or shame, but this can lead to bigger problems if left unaddressed. Encouraging teens to swallow their pride and take responsibility for their actions can help them learn from their mistakes and build stronger relationships with others.
Additionally, as teenagers are still developing their identities and sense of self, they may be particularly susceptible to the negative effects of unchecked pride and arrogance. Encouraging humility and self-reflection can help them navigate these challenges and develop into more well-rounded adults.
