"Turn To The Assassin" as written by and Jose Gonzalez Tobias Winterkorn....
Go, repress your prudent side
It's beautiful but plastic
Go, reveal darker sides
Killing is never to drastic

Go, turn to the assassin
Go, make an appointment with the assassin

Turn to the assassin
Turn to the assassin
Turn to the assassin
Turn to the assassin

Go, turn to the assassin
Go, make an appointment with the assassin

    General Commenti think he's talking about the fakeness among people in society, like plastic surgery as said in the first couple of lines. maybe the assassin is the doctor

    General CommentIt's symbolic, like the Buddhist saying "If you meet the Buddha, kill the Buddha." Do not become attached to these false ideas of truth or reality. Never be afraid to kill these versions of yourself. You must be an assassin of the "plastic" (artificial) ideas you've become repressed with.

    Listen also to the incredible song "In Every Direction" from this album. It is a similar theme. Then watch the astounding Jim Jarmusch movie "The Limits of Control." That movie is basically a visual representation of the ideas in these songs. All of them have helped me come to a better and more balanced understanding of myself lately. Don't approach these songs or film literally, remember most things that will teach us something worth while don't tell, they suggest through symbolism and make us think through them on our own.
