"Dehumanized" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Lost in slumber
A threat to no one
Weak and humbled
In my disgrace

Sweet departure
Is what I long for
Careless moments
To comfort me

Dead philosophy

If I offer you my soul
Will you carry me away?
I cannot be the only one
To be dehumanized again
Left behind

Too determined
To be forgotten
Nothing left to enrapture me
Hard and silent but softly breaking
No beloved to comfort me

Ooh, dead philosophy

If I offer you my soul
Will you carry me away?
I cannot be the only one
To be dehumanized again
Left behind

Feel the determination built into my mind

You're never gonna find me
I'll wipe the world away
Your face it will remind me
Just how much I have to leave

If I offer you my soul
Will you carry me away?
I cannot be the only one
To be dehumanized again, tell
If I offer you my soul
Will you carry me away?
I cannot be the only one
To be dehumanized again

Left behind

Into my mind

    General CommentI love this song. To me its about being surrounded by a bunch of bullshit and willing to give up ANYTHING to flee from it.

    General CommentIt's about the cold and callous nature of the world. Desire for departure from the aspects of life that make human beings dehumanized. Without feeling or emotion. Desentized to love, pain, life or death.

    General CommentYeah, this song is about a guy trying to escape from things like Love. But without love, he won't feel human anymore. So he asks Love, he love takes him in, will he promise to never hurt him. And love says I can not garuantee that. So he keeps running.

    General CommentHe's saying the belief that life should be comforting and carefree is an unrealistic idea, and that while we can put on a show and make ourselves seem unafected in reality the world is breaking us down and he's not the only one suffering. Despite the fact that we know life is hell we still look for love and comfort from people we know suffered like us.

    General CommentI agree with Adam. The song talks about being lost in slumber, and a threat to no one. Oftentimes when people suffer depression they sleep a lot, and become a pushover. Then he talks about sweet departure. He's either referencing leaving whatever place he's in, or suicide. Since again, depressed people often have thoughts of running away or of suicide.

    So pretty much the whole song ties into depression, and how when one is depressed they become dehumanized, since a depressed person often cares little about emotions such as love and happiness, etc etc. Yet emotions are what make us humans.
