"Dead World" as written by and Wayne R. (static-x)/eisen Wells....
Look down around
All is not well
Victim of change
Far out of range
A in non-A
Be or be not
See what I see
Get what I got

Sometimes I wish I could see beyond this dead world
Sometimes I wish I could see beyond me
Dead World

King of my world
This rule I break
King of my world
I eat my cake
A in non0A
Be or be not
See what I see
Get what I got

Sometimes I wish I could see beyond this dead world
Sometimes I wish I could see beyond me
Dead world

Softly, angry, bitter, killer
Torn flesh, more less, ears curled
Dead World

    General CommentThis song is inspired by the book "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. Tripp Eisen was a huge fan of Rand's work and her philosophy.

    In the book, the hero, John Galt, argues that "A is A" meaning that reality is real and there is no use in ignoring it. But in a "dead world" of corruption, A is non-A because people ignore reality.

    The character also argues that the "looters," who steal the products of the minds of others, like to have their cake and eat it too. All of this behavior leads to the dead world that Wayne sings about.

    The song is about not ignoring the truth, and not ignoring the bounds of reality.

    Tripp Eisen paid tribute to this novel by having the phrase "who is john galt" painted on his guitar.

    General CommentOops, I just read my last post, and it should read "guitar picks" not "guitar". The phrase was on his picks.

    General Commentseems to me he was singing about some sort of decadence in the world and how he escapes to his own world where all is as he wants to be
