We are not machines
We are not machines programmed, encoded
We are so much more; we are so much more..

Oh, the lights
Burning like fireflies caught in a web
Electricity hums in our heads
We're overwhelmingly fearless

When diamond eyes light up the sky,
I promise you that we can change the world!
When diamond eyes light up the sky,
I promise you that we can change!
We are not your routines
We are not your routines despite what you've told us
We are all one, we are all one...

When lights like freeways burning mirrors and melting skylines haunt your door
You should swing to connect, swing to connect the cord
Color, I see the rhythm in waves and onward still
Color, I see the rhythm in waves, the white and red, the red and white,
forever we'll know
In and of itself, nothing is whole
Here at the end of it all I still see...

Diamond eyes light up the sky,
and I promise you that we can change the world!
When diamond eyes light up the sky,
I promise you that we will change!

    My InterpretationI feel that this song starts off by expressing that people should pass oppression and express themselves to their full potential. It also contains a tinge of these people with perseverance being somewhat reckless, although driven. I feel that it then confirms that some of these dreams of people can never be fully achieved, but hope is had by them. I'm sorry if this is completely wrong, Andrew writes some great lyrics.
