Unhinge all hearts with speed
If you need something to believe
We can bury them deep
And put our faith in new machines

Once we've exhausted all the oil
And pornography
There will be so much to teach
Of the slow math of debt and dreams

Yeah, we deserve that much at least
For every land a new war, for every man a new disease
Queue the years, hold our breath to shallow beats
Storm the beach and unhinge our lungs at least

Unhinge all hearts asleep
If you need something to believe
New science always feeds us
New bombs and new TVs

And who here will say
The rate of pay for their working day
Is not outweighed by their fatigue?
The new math of debt and dreams

Yeah, we deserve that much at least
For every land a new war, for every man a new disease
Queue the years, hold our breath to shallow beats
Storm the beach and unhinge our lungs at least

For every land a new war
For every man a new disease

    My Interpretationto me it seems that through our own greed and ignorance that humankind is just making things harder with the new tchnology that becomes available instead of making things better
