"Synthetic" as written by Thomas Decker, Robert Garcia, Jonathan Santos and Soren Sarkisyan....
I can never feel the way you do
But it still becomes me now
I can't take the way you do
But it's still inside me

Synthetic solution
Synthetic, I'll become
Synthetic, if it makes this go away

Still I waste another day of my life
And it sickens me to feel this way
Now I can't make up my mind, is this right
How I let you get inside of me?

Twist my words the way that you do
'Cause it falls on deaf ears now
Still, I've learned to numb your views
But they're still inside me

Synthetic solution
Synthetic, I'll become
Synthetic if it makes this go away

Still I waste another day of my life
And it sickens me to feel this way
Now I can't make up my mind, is this right
Now I let you get inside of me?

I will never follow you

At this time I thought I was myself
And I thought I never could become you
All this time I thought I was myself
And I thought I never could become you
Wrong

Still I waste another day of my life
And it sickens me to feel this way
Now I can't make up my mind, is this right

How I let you get inside of me?

I have become synthetic

    General Commentit is good to recognize that are we who commit the mistakes, therefore from time to time we blame to those that have little that to see in our problems, SPINESHANK you r so fuckin RIGHT, it is then that me does not please to be blaming someone that has not done anything, because I become those that I consider hypocrites

    General CommentThe song seems to be about how they want to just conform to the situation and become something fake "synthetic" just so they can cope with it but they still have the conflicting views. I have felt like that plenty of times.

    General Commenti've reached a point in my life where every day is the same and it feels everyday is wasted, i'm not sure what to think and not sure why my days aren't exciting and memorable like they used to be. I think about my situation for some reason when i hear this song, i'm sure some of you can see how this would relate, but not completely, i dunno, just a thought...

    General Commenti think this song is about schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. the word synthetic is possibly referring to the idea that the singer is constantly hearing voices in his head, and he learns to live with that after a while, and when johny santos sings "i will never follow you" he's telling the voices to leave him alone. I'm not completely sure as to what this song means, but this is just my observation.

    General Commentpersonnally this song was abouit blocking things out. I felt like shit, constant depression and i thought the only way to cure this was to be unfeeling, emotionless and apathetic, effectivly "synthetic".
    If it helped i woul;d take it. the line "synthetic ill become if it makes this go away" was pretty much the summary of my idea.

    General CommentThis was one of my favorite songs growing up. I pretty much related it to how my parents were trying to create me into something they wanted me to be. After having left the nest and becoming my "own" it still relates(to me) on a diff level. Seems now society is the enemy here turning me into one of their drones. Something I like about this song is when the 2 entities scream at each other. I feel this kind of gives a face to the opposing party, and the screams are equally powerful. Spineshank still rocks as much as I remember!
