"Life Support Addiction" as written by and Dennis/sandstrom Lyxzen....
Somewhere along the line we lost
Individuality paid the cost
Close enough to inhale the security
It's always
Too far away

Breed upon
Culture sickness
Made this rule
Into our own

Silently sedated
Minds fly out the window
Our emotions suffocate
Suppress the essence of...

Beautiful independent friday night dress
Wash away the fear & insecurity
Substitute kills the freedom
Cut the wounds
Wide open

A glimpse caught the sense
Now you're content's slowly fading
Familiar escape
Alternative to nothing
Familiar escape
Alternative to nothing

Silently sedated
Minds fly out the window
Our emotions suffocate
Suppress the essence of - living

Reminded to die
Life support addiction
Watch your love
Slip through your hands

Silently sedated
Minds fly out the window
Our emotions suffocate
Suppress the essence of...

    General CommentThis song fucking rocks. Refused had a real message to tell, rather than the bullshit we're contantly exposed to, be it through school or television or popular opinion.

    I believe this song is about our inept instinct to follow the "norm", simple as that may sound. We are "silently sedated", numb to our own individuality; our emotions suffocate beneath the dominant mindsets of the ignorant power figures who surround, control and manipulate us in our thoughts and actions. We have no choice, an alternative to nothing, since when we raise our voices we are shunned and humiliated while smiling conformists glad-hand fellow weak-willed individuals. In the end, it is the comfort in the realization that we will all someday die that makes the day worth getting out of bed for. We are ruled by the instinct to prolong life (our "love"); although it is ludicrous and childish to follow the herd, it is necessary to do so in order to assuredly lengthen our influence and existence within our tradition-based society. Refused is saying that we are already dead, yet ironically it is life that pushes our dead existence forward. Hence, life support addiction.

    General CommentThis song is about how ppl need to do drugs, party, watch porno movies, play the lotto, etc to fill a void in their lives. Its an addiction for ppl. Millions spent on all these things until u just fade away. Its about how in school u learn to be what we are expected to become and how it kills creativity and passion by trying to make everyone alike. Make sure you dont look or act different. Mainly its about how many things in the world tempt u to be the same as everyone else and it becomes a life support addiction.
