踏んづけたり

Do you have a translation question?

踏んづけたり

What does this mean: 踏んづけたり. Is it something like "to step out together"
Also, I think I know what this means but I'm not quite sure: ちゃいない.


p.s. I'm kind of disappointed that no one has answered my last few thread questions. The "sympathy for the devil" thread was pretty important. Thankyou. :)

I actually hadn't seen that phrase before. I *assume* it is a conjugation of 踏み付ける which means to step on.

「眼鏡を踏んづけて壊す。」
I stepped on the glasses and they broke.

The たり may mean that it is part of listing many things that occured/you did. such as
昨日、友達と話したり、ご飯食べたり、早く寝て。

What is the context of the word?

Here's the first two stanzas:

気付かれないでトドメを刺す
どの時代も生き延びてきた
嘘みたいな空の下
恐いものなて憶えちゃいない

街をそっと見下ろして
気紛れに踏んづけたり
そこら中に火をつけた
そう言えばなんて名前だったっけ

There from the song Last Dinosaur, from the Pillows. I thought I would have an easier time, but it never goes that way does it my friend.;)

Yup, looking at that, I would definately say that it means "stepping on things" with a hinted meaning of doing other bad stuff as well.

That looks like a really freaking bizzare song, by the way. I'm going to have to go rent that CD. =)
