Clean perfect lines cutting up the skies
a triumph of the intellect, like nothing seen in nature but
we leavve earth behind, crying to mankind
why have you forsaken me for convenience and comfort, when onece I gave you all you needed to live?

(Chorus) Seduce me with
of better life
makes me free and so civilized
caress me
strike me blind
feed me to the machinery of night

This steel and glass
speaks only of its' decay
but the land will never lie
this fear and paranoia are the weeds which we choke the life from me

(Chorus) X2

narcotic is the night air
her sweet smell is everywhere
another newborn baby cries
at the sight of cold staring eyes
the sun will soon be done away
by the nights sweet swift decay
every street corner is a felony
and dark alleys are accessories
what did you expect from this?
what did you expect from this?
what did you expect from this?
what did you expect?

    General CommentMy thought on this song is that it's very deep, one of my favourites off of the album. This song I think is just how we have a bigger civilization, and maybe this song is about questioning about it, is it worth all the technology when we have everything to survive from the land.
