Imagine a place where freedom's just a word on the wall
surrounded by the wreckage of towers that could never fall
the company will avenge
imagine the lies like bombs to turn the shock and the awe
for justice in time and a land for justice never was one thief
to rule them all along the patomac and west toward the sea
through the ghettos past the monuments we all built to house the weak
its the blueprint to the fall of our place in history
the end to what we all believed to be the hope to save this place
and I walk among the flagstones thru the graves
an apocolypse is bloomin' in the sage
dead presidents lined coffin text in biblical unrest
the blind pride home genocide
and the secret wars we all missed
it's the blueprint to the fall of the entire human race
the end to what we all believed would be the hope to save this place

    General Commenti'm not particularly fond of punk songs about how bad the government sucks but i do like how Strung Out take a more artful look at this.
    i believe this song is about how the US is headed for destruction in the same way Rome fell. How an established civilization will find itself on top and loose sight of how they got there. America and out freedom.
    the "one theif to rule them all" part, i see as the band expressing this song around how those in charge of us attempt to make things better only to make them way worse. the 'blueprint' would the history we are living of such a violent and fast paced culture.

    General CommentThis is by far the best song ever, it's got the best drummer and the best guitarist in the world showing off in one song. I love it!

    General CommentRather than taking the "fuck Bush" approach like most bands were at the time, Strung Out offers a sophisticated look at how 9/11 changed everything and how its quite apparent corporations are ruling the world for their benefits over the peoples benefits.

    General Commentwow no one wants to hear about how much you guys love the song, comments are for song meanings...

    i agree with cyanide2060, seems to have to do with downfall of possibly America, but also possibly the entire world. mankind wasting away the earth. human pollution. etc.
