"Marching The Hate Machines" as written by Steven Drozd, Wayne Coyne, Eric Hilton and Rob Garza....
Well let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy, here

And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

So let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy, here

And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

It's gonna be bad
It's gonna be wrong
It's gonna feel good

Marching the hate machines into the sun
Marching the hate machines into the sun

We'll let's start by
Making it clear
Who is the enemy, here

And we'll show them
That it's not them
Who is superior

Marching the hate machines into the sun
Marching the hate machines into the sun
Marching the hate machines into the sun
Marching the hate machines into the sun

    General Commentfor me this song carries a lot of weight..

    i feel it is about finally facing all of the things you hide away inside.. the feelings you won't let yourself feel.. and when you finally do face them, try to look them in the eye, admit and fess up to their existence, declare them your enemy.. you become superior as you let them go and champion the hate within. and trust me, as i know from experience, it is bad and wrong to have to go through it.. but good golly gosh.. it feels soo good to let go and feel.

    General CommentI don't know if it's so much about the feelings people don't let themselves feel as it is about getting rid of the feelings caused by the false judgments of others and allowing yourself to live freely without insecurities and feeling hated on by others who think they are superior. And by getting rid of these false insecurities and feelings of being hated upon it is you, yourself that becomes the superior one. Just march those hate machines right into the sun...

    General CommentIn my opinion, there's a connection between this song and the holocaust.
    "Let's start by making it clear who is the enemy here," step by step they've made the rest of the nation hate the jewish people by making "greedy and bad people."
    "And we'll show them that it's not them who is superior", but the Aryan race, or whoever is different from the jewish.
    "It's gonna be bad, It's gonna be wrong, It's gonna feel good." Talking about the cruelty and inhumanity of planning "final solution". The phrase "it's gonna feel good" talks about how inhuman those people had become.
    And then talking about the final solution "Marching the hate machines into the sun". Death marches, Internment camps, Extermination camps.
    Calling the Jews "hate machines", because of all the hate they've "produced". Talking about all those Antisemitism and the rest.
    That's what this song is about to me.

    General CommentI have not heard this song, so I cannot identify with the emotion and it isn't particularly "poetry" so has no emotive either. However, the words are simple enough to really understand and feel without too much provocation.

    "Well let's start by making it clear, who is the enemy here?" This type of question beggs clarity or understanding when provided equally understandable sides. In order to define the enemy, you have to understand it first by equally acknowledging both the good and bad.

    "And we'll show them that it's not them that is superior." The "enemy" or "bad side" want's to dominate; to conquer the side that want's to "shed light" on the truth...Geez, how many umpteenth ways can that be applied.

    "It's gonna be bad, it's gonna be wrong, it's gonna feel good." While it seems contradictory that "bad," "wrong," and "good" could be mentioned in the same context, the shift more so describes a freedom from that which has tied you down; it's much easier to be subordinate and ignore the truth while consequently submitting to the lies. Therefore, calling out the enemy may feel "bad" and "wrong," but it will equally feel liberating and true!

    "Marching the hate machine into the sun" can be double-entendre...once the truth has been discovered and brought to light, the enemy can no longer keep you in the dark. Or, once the truth is discovered and revealed, one will feel betrayed and become determined to escape the darkness, thus onward marches the hate machine into the...darkness...again...so, into the sun means enlightenment, it must!

    Anywho, clever, yet simple way to explain the most fundamental idea of darkness and light and all that it encompasses, symbolically.

    A theif in the night may steal your light, but can never take away your thunder. Haha. It's a simple metaphor/song that is easy to understand and isn't too convoluded with exception.
