"Elizabeth" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Abe Cunningham and Stephen Carpenter....
If it looks broken
That's just the picture
That's how you know
If it's in focus
Then it's no fun for guys like me

These robots have it wired around here
They'll make slaves of us soon
Canvas the neighborhood

I mean it, watch

Step away
Don't look that close
They could be anywhere
Hid up in the ballast
Down in the basement
Camped out in the bunker
If it should come back
We'll set the tracers
Break it in easy

These robots have it wired around here
These robots have it wired around here
(these robots have it wired around here)
Circuits on Babylon
Cracked up on some lawn
Chasing these scenes
Given a fever
Restless manner
Is it worth your soul?
They might leave tomorrow
They might leave tomorrow
They might leave tomorrow
They might leave tomorrow

    General CommentThis is about how much propeganda there is in the USA and how the story is always twisted to fit the need. The paranoia level is so insane that they have everyone eyeing their neigbours as the enemy. The last few words are pretty much saying that there is hope, but only if you want it.

    General Commentits about brainwashing and controlling and people just becoming zombies and how there's no individuality. Is disorder worth your soul? I think this is a narative, I think someone is telling, trying to convince someone else [maybe elizabeth] that they'll brainwash her and she needs to get away. Just a thought.

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about someone in the military training someone else on the job. I'm thinking they're explosives experts and use robots to set up the wiring from far. What also seems to solidify this is the part where someone is being warned about getting too close because someone could be hiding in a few places, one being a bunker. The title is misleading as well as the instrumentals, but the lyrics seem to indicate something war related. The last part of the song is talking about someone leaving, perhaps the enemy they've been fighting off.
