"Blinded By Science" as written by Sergio George and Humberto Nieves....
Blinded by science, I'm on the run
Blinded by science, where do I belong?
What's in the future, has it just begun
Blinded by science, I'm on the run

I worry 'bout the world that we live in
I'm worried by all the confusion
I wonder 'bout the lies I've been reading
I wonder where this madness is leading

Is this a road going nowhere?
Or is someone leading us somewhere?
I can't believe we're here for no reason
There must be something we can believe in

Blinded by science, I'm on the run
I'm not an appliance, so don't turn me on
What's in the future, has it just begun
Blinded by science, I'm on the run

What's in the future, has it just begun
Blinded by science, I'm on the run

I worry 'bout the world that we live in
I'm worried by all the confusion
I wonder 'bout the lies I've been reading
I wonder where this madness is leading

Is this a road going nowhere?
Is someone leading us somewhere?
I can't believe we're here for no reason
There must be something we can believe in

Blinded by science, I'm on the run
I'm not an appliance, don't turn me on
What's in the future, has it just begun
Blinded by science, I'm on the run

Blinded by science, I'm on the run
I'm blinded by science, on the run

    General CommentI think what this song is just about a guy who is starting to question everything about the confusion and the madness in the world and how we are way to depended on science

    General CommentTo be honest, this always sounded like a religious song to me. I mean, obviously the "I'm not an appliance" bit is a little less religious-sounding, but... ;P Things like:
    "I can't believe we're here for no reason
    There must be something we can believe in."
    ... this shows a hint of religious connotations.
    I think Inverted-Shadow very well could be right, though. =P

    General CommentI generally agree with Inverted-Shadow. It's about how recently the human world has been driven by science instead of emotion. The rate at which technological advancements occur is staggering to many people, as they find it harder and harder to just stop for a second and enjoy their being. A lot is sacrificed in the name of science - peace, well-being, morality...

    Song MeaningFrom my point of view it sounds like he's illustrated the conflict between Science and Religion -- and he's sitting on the fence, disillusioned with everything going on around him. The consensus in the scientific community that there's no real proof of any higher power or god -- making the logical assumption that a higher power or god doesn't exist and we're just billions of complex organisms sharing a small island in the vastness of space -- has caused him to question his long held religious beliefs -- that there's a higher power/god who's in control and has a plan for everything. The former's evidence may be convincing, but in his eyes it's such cold logic that it's hard for him to accept over the latter.

    In the end he'll have to choose. Does he accept one over the other? or does he come up with his own personal theory of life? It's up to you.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about life. The man who sings it is starting to question everything and wondering why is he even alive, what is the purpose of his own life, what is the meaning of life.

    He things about the world and the people, I think he doesn't feel like everything that is happening is right.
