"Grammatizator" as written by Zach Blair, Joseph Principe, Timothy Mcilrath and Brandon Barnes....
We celebrate the downfall with ticker tape parades
Oblivious to the fucking mess left lying in the wake
"God grant me the strength to let my children starve"
He whispered to the dripping roof into the candled dark

Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
We bury ten thousand stories untold

Flirt with insurrection batting eyes from afar
In skybox seats or hotel suites, six figure fucking cars

Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
Bury the stories

Control the heart
Control the mind
Control the hands

To build what they've designed
Lifetimes of silence and apathy
Ensure the prompt demise of our humanity

Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
We bury ten thousand stories untold
The stories untold

    General CommentThe song is based on a short story called "The Great Automatic Grammatizator," by Roald Dahl. The story is about a guy who builds a machine that writes perfect stories, putting authors out of work. This song actually has a bunch of lines from the short story in it, example being "God grant me the strength to let my children starve."

    General CommentI can't seem to figure out the meaning of this one. It does seem pretty political though.

    We celebrate the downfall
    with ticker tape parades
    Oblivious to the fucking mess left lying in the wake

    I think this talks about how we celebrate Bush no longer being president of the US, but we don't realize that Obama isn't going to magically solve all our problems and we don't see the real issues going on.

    "God grant me the strength to let my children starve"
    He whispered to the dripping roof
    into the candled dark

    This is a parent (probably, could be anyone really) who realizes how bad the situation in America is and is praying in his beat up house.

    Contemplate contracts of gold
    Just wave your hand and relinquish control

    This sounds like selling out and giving up control of your life. Not sure how this fits in with the rest of the song, but yeah. Like I said before, I'm not entirely sure what this song is about, so that's kind of all I got so far.
