I live in truth, complacently.
Where's the threat you see in me?
Am I the cause of your Self consciousness?
You scream at me
'cause I can't ignore the destructiveness that you support,
'cause my life's contrary to yours.
No soft words from my mouth.
A glazed look in your eyes.
I live in the world of reality,
you comfort yourself with lies.
I will release myself,
I will detach myself from you.
I will detach myself from you kind.
I've seen your life but I can't see how it is that
you can be so content in your own ignorance. Its been so dark for so long now a new light has come along, illuminating all,
so shut your eyes.
I won't tell you what you want to hear,
I will show you what's real. I will, will defy.

    Awesome song. It reminds me of how I felt when I began to question zionism and divinity in general "'cause I can't ignore the destructiveness that you support," "you comfort yourself with lies." I would have identified with this song most at the begining of the violence in Israel when zionazis in my class were talking about the jewish divine right, and I couldn't understand how they could be so convinced, and I realized that I didn't want to be a part of that frame of mind any more.
    This song communicates that exact idea almost perfectly. Great song, and it has a catchy ending.

    Part of the beauty of this song is that it applies to the fundies of all religions, not just jews, although those are the ones this song invokes in my mind, personally.

    General CommentI think the song in general terms is about realizing you are disgusted with who you are part of, what group and everything, and you can't stand another second living around these peoples attitudes, religion, or whatever, and you just wanna get the hell out of there, like, quick style.

    General CommentUsed to think this was a straight edge song. It could be about religion though as well. Who knows.
