"Demanufacture" as written by Burton C. Bell, Dino A.m. Cazares, Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers....
Desensitized by the values of life
Maligned and despaired by government lies

Revenge is so strong
I taste it on my tongue
My gun will be
Your angel of mercy

Dislocated by the eyes of disdain
Abused beyond recognition

I can't hope with
The madness abounding
Blasts in my head
Of gunfire resounding
Firing relentless
Killing the senses

I've got no more goddamn regrets
I've got no more goddamn respect

I am the thorn
In your eye
I am the thorn
In your eye
I am the thorn
In your eye
I am the thorn
In your eye

Revenge is so strong
I taste it on my tongue
My gun will be
Your angel of mercy

I've got no more goddamn regrets
I've got no more goddamn respect

    General CommentKingfox, you're wrong, Worlock is correct. Fear Factory have a trilogy of concept albums that began with Demanufacture, then Obsolete then ended with Digimortal. Just beacause Obsolete has the story written in the booklet doesnt mean it is the only concept album. Those three albums have one continuous linking story documenting the breakdown of civilisation and the war between man and machine. Demanufacture and Obsolete require the listener to decipher the lyrics and discover the story, Burton wrote those lyrics and he wrote them as a concept story. He has said this in countless interviews.

    General CommentSociety has used hatred as a tool to weaken the speaker "feelings" (Desensitized), and in turn the person will lash back out on society with violence and hatred. i dont know if thats close but its one farkkkken cool song :)

    General CommentNo, not really close. It's about the backwards trend of society towards violence and ultimately the fall of society. It was written because Dino had a guy pull a gun on him in an LA bar for spilling his beer.
