I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days
I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain

So take your parasites away
And keep them somewhere far from me
'Cause I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days

I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain
Another fool in history
I'll tell you what it means to me

It's nothing but lobotomy
It's nothing but an angry sea
Striking a wave with me

It's coming like a big freight train
It's spreading like a wild flame
You know it's coming all our ways
So dig your dirt and make your grave

Mama save me
Come on and vaccinate me
'Cause I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days

I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain
Another fool in history
I'll tell you what it means to me

It's nothing but lobotomy
It's nothing but an angry sea
Striking a wave with me

    General CommentNo one? Seriously? this is a stellar song! Well, here goes.

    This song is about the character, or patient, who doesn't want the same metaphoric and literal disease that everyone else has in these recent times. The patient is afraid that he'll just be another medical fool in history, suffering from this moral disease that seems to be attacking everyone like a freight train, forceful and unstoppable. The song says pretty clearly that the character thinks that this disease is going to kill us all, make us live in pain, and the character is looking for a way to prevent it: IE: Keep your parasites away from me, Mamma save me come on and vaccinate me.

    But I could be wrong.

    General Comment^ The character is scared/disgusted of the kind of morals, or lack thereof, that is lingering around "people" as a whole--the constant bee in people's pants that make everyone be nasty to each other, or the bombardment of sex in media, lots of topics come to mind. He/she is asking to be sheltered, hidden away and unexposed to the nastiness of the world--the "mamma save me" line hints at this more than anything. A "fool in history" indicates how little he thinks of people's antics and amoral lifestyles--the way they live is like a self-inflicted lobotomy, so why should he/she let him/herself be infected by their way of life? A bit of nonconformist idealism coupled with conservatism, I think.

    General CommentI think this song can be about any situation where something bad is looming on the horizon and all you can do is feel helpless and wait.
    I like the depth of fear and panic that this song is able to capture, especially with the delivery of:
    "It's coming like a big freight train
    It's spreading like a wild flame
    You know it's coming all our ways
    So dig your dirt and make your grave"

    Plus it sounds so good too.
    I also wondered what other peoples' interpretations of the line "an angry sea striking a wave with me." I'm confused as to what the action is, and I have no idea about its significance song meaning-wise.

    General CommentDoes no one see any symbolism linking to the NWO and how the government is raping our minds. Does no one see that in this song? Does no one know about monarch mind control and how the government does experiments on these types of things?

    He sees that more and more people are being lobotomized by simple everyday things. He doesn't want to fall into the same crap other people have. He doesn't want to be dumb downed with the masses.
    He doesn't want to be like everyone just going with the flow and not having any sense of reality and becoming "another fool in history" which is just saying he doesn't wanna be like every one else just giving in to what's going on in the world and dying with the masses of our generations.
