"Softer Sounds" as written by and Isen Winneke....
The sheep - tonight they weep
Fear - for the feeding
Gasp - clutched in groups
No they don't

No they don't hope
The sheep - tonight they weep
Fear - for the feeding
Gasp - clutched in groups

No they don't
No they don't hope

These poor sheep tonight they weep
Begging for death but they settle for sleep
Sound of grinding metals always looming near by
Their bodies are caged and now so are their minds

Ooh, these trembling things
These poor sheep can't lay their heads down
(no dreams of softer sounds)

Blood is in the mud
Trampled by hooves
That constantly shake
And nervously move

No hope or ambition
They stay with the group
These filthy fucking animals
They're just like you

Animals
We're animals
Animals
We're animals
Animals
We're animals

And in the twilight swoon
Under an empty moon
The creatures stop their shake
And plan a quick escape

They're dancing on barbwire
Fraught with curdled screams
Messy skins and messy fluids
Paved a road to golden dreams

They move in a frenzy
Across their mothers' backs
Out into the open
They don't look back

Sounds. It rots their minds - Leaves them blind
Sounds. It rots their brains - Drives them insane
No dreaming of softer sounds!

    General CommentI see this song as the 'Bunnies' of themechanicalhand. It's theme seems to be almost the same yet this one has more positive tones compared to bunnies.

    Both are songs that compare us to weak animals with no control over ourselves. This one at least has hope of escaping that while bunnies just had us being splattered by hammers haha

    General CommentNotice how often they mention Sheep in this song. and how were animals just like them. Theres a obviously a significance their.

    "No hope or ambition
    They stay with the group
    These filthy fucking animals
    They're just like you"

    Im thinking what they mean is so many people these days commit themselves to a group of some kind because they cannot think for themselves. How they complain about problems but they lack the intelligence to actually do anything about them. Something along the lines of that. More metaphors to describe the painful truth of what we really are.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Animal Farm.

    I think the meaning of it might be pretty obvious: we're just filthy animals.
