"Deviate From The Form" as written by and Per Fredrik/ohlsson Nilsson....
I transcend my earthly form
Through some questions never asked before
Question the need to be a machine
That responds automatically

Some words will trigger certain acts
Just one of the commandments we have learnt
Some acts will trigger certain states
I think, it's time to alter the game

I'm changing
You're changing
We're changing from within

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe

I receive clues that lead me
To answers never seen before
And find the final piece
In the puzzle of reality

Some words will trigger certain acts
Belief in limitations we have learnt
Some acts will trigger certain states
I'm taking back what I gave away

I'm changing
You're changing
We're changing from within

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe

Soul volcano, now erupting
Lava swallows what used to be
Soul tsunami, overflowing
Overriding reality

Soul volcano, now erupting
Lava swallows what used to be
Soul tsunami, overflowing
Overriding reality

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe

    General CommentAbout breaking away from traditions and norms and becoming something different and in some way better...I guess he could be talking about not conforming to society's (sub)standards! Great song either way :)

    General Commentomg, why was this not on the actual album, it is their best song, actually the bonus tracks on that albums are actually the best songs on it...and their new stuff is amazing as well

    they obviously got the title from Rush

    Song MeaningPlaying through Mass Effect 1 and talking to one of the characters, Tali, about the backstory of the Geth, sentient machines which hate organic life, made me think that this is about the transition from a machine to a sentient machine: Artificial Intelligence.

    "I transcend my earthly form
    Through some questions never asked before
    Question the need to be a machine
    That responds automatically"

    "Who am I? What am I doing here? What is my purpose in life? "Why do I obey organics?"

    "Some words will trigger certain acts
    Just one of the commandments we have learnt
    Some acts will trigger certain states"

    Command words for making robots do stuff, for an easy example, lights being controlled from the sound of clapping your hands, etc.
