Solve the following rebus:

  5.OUT
  4.OUT
  3.OUT
  2.OUT
  1.OUT

The solution to this rebus is a gloomy phrase.

I think Aggie is close, but I suspect it's more specific - to be exact, I am thinking it is

Outnumbered Five to One

Is it

Out of time. I'm referencing a failed bomb defusal

I think question_asker is close to the money, but I think the solution is just

DOWN AND OUT

because

OUT is going DOWN the page from 5 to 1. And being DOWN AND OUT is synonymous for feeling gloomy

coming OUT of the closet

I think it is

Out of order.

Because

It's the the order from $5$ to $1$. And it is gloomy too.

  • $\begingroup$ It can easily be argued 5-1 is in order. Reverse order. Same can't be argued for 12435 or any other variation.. $\endgroup$ – Insane Apr 2 '16 at 9:01
  • $\begingroup$ @Insane My answer totally assumes that it is in order. I just took the word 'out' and the order of the numbers to make the answer. :) $\endgroup$ – manshu Apr 2 '16 at 9:06

How about:

Beaten all ends up


Because

Beaten could be a synonym for out.
Both the ends $5$ and $1$ are out.
The remaining numbers get out while going up, from $1$ to $5$ when natural order is considered.
Moreover, it is a gloomy phrase, as it means defeating totally.

It may be

ALL OUT as all number are out.
