When I see red I'm going mad
I never know what's better use to say

When I see brown I'm feeling down
Advantage now it seems is thrown away

Am I talking to you, am I talking to friend
Am I talking to enemy lines but they don't understand

You are killing my time, you are programming hate
You are urging on crime but you're not talking straight

Chorus (x2):
My brain is dried
My mind's denied
My head is dead
Dead is the head, the head is dead

I've got enough, you're lying stuff
I never know what's better use to see

I grab my gun, let's do some fun
Advantage now it seems is thrown away

Are you talking to me, are you talking to friend
Are you talking to enemy lines but they don't understand

I am killing your time, I am programming hate
I am urging on crime 'cause I am talking straight

Chorus (x2):
My brain is dried
My mind's denied
My head is dead
Dead is the head, the head is dead

Dead head! (x4)
Dead!

Am I talking to you, am I talking to friend
Am I talking to enemy lines but they don't understand

You are killing my time, you are programming hate
You are urging on crime but you're not talking straight

Chorus (x2):
My brain is dried
My mind's denied
My head is dead
Dead is the head, the head is dead

Don't let 'em down you, don't let 'em kill
Don't let 'em thrill you, don't let 'em break your will
Don't let 'em judge you, don't let 'em fool
Don't let 'em crush you, don't let 'em start to rule

    General CommentGreat song by a very underrated band. I recommend you check out their 2006 debut album 'Regressive by Default', every song on it is kickass and I'll keep uploading the lyrics for them.

    As for the lyrics, I think they are about a person who is constantly being opposed by the people around him as they ridicule and make fun of him. Eventually, this treatment brings out his violent side so that he can take revenge on them ("I grab my gun, let's do some fun"), but the problem is that this is exactly what they want, because this way, he turns himself into one of them. He knows that they're just talking bullshit, but everyone has their limit of how much they can take, and it takes away his advantage that he is actually a good and righteous person. In the end, it basically makes him feel brain dead.

    The message, as explained in the four final lines, is to not let this kind of people into your mind and let them take control of you.
