"Mind Machine" as written by and Per Fredrik/aelvestam Nilsson....
All free will is gone
Automatic knowledge
Humans lead in leashes
Silent, untrue
All are subjects to
Automated liars
Broadcast feelings through
Machines that makes you

Wither away
Death of the soul
Indoctrinated in false grace

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery

Target is the world
Structuring the madness
Terminating ancient
Concepts of truth
Power structure comes
Silent weapons fired
Quiet wars in minds
The damage is done

Wither away
Death of the soul
Indoctrinated in false grace

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery

All hope that died must rise anew
By facing the passage of time
All that we've known was bound to drown
Before we could wake

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery

    General CommentI don't think it's about cyborgs and literal bio-machinery. It's about the massive amount of media saturation present today, how television, biased news, the internet, even music affects every person, injecting a new philosophy or false reality into them every time they turn on the tv or click a mouse. A sort of mass hypnosis that we can see happening today. We (a lot of us) don't form our own ideas anymore; just get all our thoughts from technological broadcasting...Mind and machinery...

    Those are just my thoughts. It's a good message, really. And the song is great. Not your typical death metal song nowadays...

    what is the world coming to?

    ok, basically mind machine is literally about the future, similar to theories that tv shows have like ghost in the shell. People have become "mind and machinery," cyborgs, and there is a higher power controlling them( this is where the ghost in the shell part ends).

    Many of the songs on this album seem to have this theme to them. bear in mind however, that it may not be all literal and could be metaphor for people losing control of their lives to a higher power in todays society.

    Much of this album seems to be about control, manipulation, and perceptions of reality

    General CommentThis song seems to be about how much people are manipulated through the media. I don't agree, however, with "fear now fuels the system" because it has fueled it ever since tribes have become a thing. It has only changed its shape. Before it was our blind belief in religion and its rules, now it's our blind belief in the media and its effect on our subconscious.
