"Electric Red" as written by and Fredrik/kidman Thordendal....
Humanity peeled from our bones
Deprived of integuments that make us real
Shadows of flesh to maintain the system
Our own blood splashes as we kneel

So meticulously machined
Into these obedient devices
Puppets, fine-tuned submissive drones
Replicas of each other, clones

We're dormant accumulations of flesh
In a crimson filtered twilight
Mute witnesses to the game
Wrenches to keep the bolts of lies tight

We're the fabric concealing the stains,
The red tainted existence
The gullibles to bless your sins away
Rags to wipe your blooded trails

We give in to the atrophy,
To the twining of self-thought knowledge
The purpose of the human mind reviled
Everlasting ignorance realized
The scarlet flood inundates our powerless thoughts
Defenseless minds with lies overfed

Every thought stained, defiled
Painted the color, the shade of electric red

    General CommentIt has some deep stuff but it all leads to this:
    We all get our thoughts manipulated and there is no possible way to anything about it.
    All in a very violant way.
    But because its deep I think its about the very core and essence of someone's soul manipulated, and by machines so its done to an entire society.
    Wich leads me to the conclusion:
    The entire society, or the entire world is manipulated to become the way it is, because thats our system.

    My InterpretationI think the song's lyrics critize the notion that there is a specifically human (or humane) essence through which we can relate to the world without any epistomological or moral problems, when in fact we can be moulded to act accordingly to the needs of the powers that be, and then simply repeat out the behavioural patterns for as long as is needed and/or required. This song is the painful realization, the wakening up to that. The "We give in to the atrophy..." - section is especially powerful considering the lyrical context.
