If you find strength in the sea
Choke on the waters of my enemy
It's time

Time to show the machines
How we all breathe
Let them inside
To manage our dreams
Show the machines

If you find strength in the death of innocents
Bottle the soul you have left
It's your time

Time to show the machines
How we all breathe
Let them inside
To manage our dreams
Show the machines

A chip on the flesh
Well, it's my circuitry
Let them inside
To manage our dreams

Time to show the machines
How we all breathe
Let them inside
To manage our dreams

A chip on the flesh
Well, it's my circuitry
Let them inside
To manage our dreams

Then I saw the cuts on your arms
I guess you're bored and you need to bleed
Hari kari sideshows can be so
Very fucking stupid

And I saw the streets where we play
Where depression is industry
And I take my hat off to
Anyone that's ever given more of a fuck than me

Then I saw the cuts on your arms
I guess you're bored and you need to bleed
Hari kari sideshows can be so
Very fucking stupid

And I saw the streets where we play
Where depression is industry
And I take my hat off to
Anyone who's ever given more of a fuck than me

If you find strength in the sea
Choke on the waters of my enemy
It's time

    General CommentI love this song...
    I see it as a response to all the sci-fi thoughts of robots taking over humans and such

    General Comment*the song meaning*
    the song is dealing with Joshua's(frontman) death he is saying he doesnt want life sopport, the machine takes full control over him and his body,pull the plug to show the machine how he breaths(death), if any one ever gave a fuck about him, and that if you ever got better fuck you.

    General CommentI think this song is about how the wave of new technology and new trends is sort of taking over what the subject's perception of how things worked was. We give into such things every day in our life simply to progress the "machines" and he acknowledges anyone else who has the same thoughts as he does... Talking about how the past is reflected upon the present and future of what he lives/lived through. Stating as well that the new forms of social and political gain are buying into the "machine" that will corrupt, if not already corrupted, the world.

    General Commentokay, unknown user... dont think too hard, you'll do yourself in, but i like ur unique thinking.
    _______
    i just saw the video.
    it's animated with futuristic people.
    they like thier burgers.
    there are also these figures that look as if people dressed up in slim bunny suits, but that's irrelevant,; they are the burger meat.
    and when the people had a "food supply shortage" (video), they built these big machines that had the strength to blow underground, where there were more burger meat hoppin around.
    ..and in the operation, the machines were too powerful and blew up this race and what they had.
    the video style changes right after this, as if you are viewing personal camcorder footage of waste, rubble, machine parts, and dead victims of thier own technology.

    General CommentBasically, the song is talking about his life support, saying that he doesn't want his life in the hands of a Machine. If you watch the video clip (which is awsome) it shows not only what seems to be happening now, but also what will happen if everybody entrusts their lives to machines, eventually making all machines the cause of both our survival and death.
