People
Of the earth beware
It is here in human form
An atrocity
Laced with greed
Filled with
Evil intentions
Ready to attack!

[Lead: Andy]

Look to the air for stories to choose
Who will be your next victim
Profitting on visions of others

Dark emotions run through its veins
It's motives are false
It's mind is insane
A distant planet with no signs of life
To become a home for this alien breed

Scientists of the world unite
Your services are more than needed
This creature in human form
Is out of control

[Lead: Chuck]

Looks can be deceiving
See beyond the shell
Flesh and eyes mean nothing
The truth, time it will tell

Before you think you fool the world
What comes around goes around
Shown for what you are
A waste of life

[Lead: Andy]

Look to the air for stories to choose
Who will be your next victim
Profitting on visions of others

Dark emotions run through its veins
It's motives are false
It's mind is insane
A distant planet with no signs of life
To become a home for this alien breed

Scientists of the world unite
Your services are more than needed
This creature in human form
Is out of control

    My Interpretation"People
    Of the earth beware
    It is here in human form
    An atrocity
    Laced with greed
    Filled with
    Evil intentions
    Ready to attack!"

    As chuck stated in several interviews 'Hell is inside of people'. This is what he is trying to say with this part. The evil is in human form.

    "Look to the air for stories to choose
    Who will be your next victim
    Profiting on visions of others"

    This one isn't as easy as the previous one. I believe this can refer to many things. For example visions in religion that makes people do bad things. But probably also just mentally insane people in general that do messed up things as a result of their visions.

    "Dark emotions run through its veins
    It's motives are false
    It's mind is insane
    A distant planet with no signs of life
    To become a home for this alien breed"

    The first three lines seem kinda similar to the first part of this song. It's just about the evil within people. The last two lines are in my opinion pretty hard to interpret. It could mean that once we start to inhabit other planets we sort of change that distant planet into a evil place with evil people?

    "Scientists of the world unite
    Your services are more than needed
    This creature in human form
    Is out of control"

    Chuck is asking scientists to cast out the evil from those people. I personally have no idea how this can be done, if it can be done (seems inevitable to me). But this is kinda the only thing that can be done to save us from ourselves.


    "Looks can be deceiving
    See beyond the shell
    Flesh and eyes mean nothing
    The truth, time it will tell"

    Pretty obvious, just because a person seems to be a good person from the outside doesn't mean they are. And the truth will tell as their evil side can come out at any time.


    "Before you think you fool the world
    What comes around goes around
    Shown for what you are
    A waste of life"

    These people fool the world and do bad things, but in the end they will be the ones paying for their wrongdoings. Sadly this isn't always the case in our current society.

    General CommentThe literal meaning seems to be about extraterrestrials who want to fuck shit up, but its never that easy. So ill try to bring religion into it.
    "Look to the air for stories to choose
    Who will be your next victim
    Profitting on visions of others"

    Look to the air seems kind of a slam on heaven saying when you look to heaven for your stories you are really looking to the air. Profiting of visions of others seem like those priests who suck the cash and dignity out of people with Jesus's vision, or the bibles vision, or whatever fucking religion you follow.

    "Scientists of the world unite
    Your services are more than needed
    This creature in human form
    Is out of control"

    Who is religions greatest enemy? Science and common sense. These possessed people with their convert the world attitude is out of control, and needs to be combated.

    I could do this all day and just pick parts out of it but you get the idea. I will leave this one last qoute for all you religulous people out there.

    "Before you think you fool the world
    What comes around goes around
    Shown for what you are
    A waste of life"

    General CommentThis song is about a computer which has a rather loud operating system. His owner is disgusted and sends it to Azerbaijan to be fixed. The worker in Azerbaijan has headphones on when the package is delivered and ignores the delivery. The box stays there for 36 years when the man finally removes his headphones. The rain has made the cardboard soggy and the computer is now of no use as it is wet. The man simply sends a compensation of a handbag to the original owner.
