The The Face to The Floor Songfacts reports that Pete Loeffler wrote the lyrics while watching a documentary on the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. The program explained how it worked, how many people he stole from and for how long he stole. In Winter 2011-12, the song spent 12 weeks on top of the Mainstream Rock chart.
