I'm hypnotized by rituals
now that I am on my own
Tranquilized like an animal
All because I lost control

Are you tuning in to our conversation
Oh yea you'll get your chance
The bigger the brighter illuminated
Control the audience

The weight of the world has dragged you down
And took with it what you've earned
Communications lost to the radio
Burning all your bridges down
I may never be quite satisfied but that's the only way
I know
I am over come with sympathy for your pathetic soul

Breathe in the air while you still can
Take all that you have while you still can
Sleep all night while you still can

    General CommentFirst, amazing song.
    Second, even though I've been listening to punk rock for almost 30 years, I rarely understand what the hell the singers are saying, and even if I do, I don't usually analyze the songs. Something caught my ear tonight while listening to this, after hearing "hypnotized by rituals", and "illuminated", I just knew this had to be about the powers that be, and probably has something to do with what JEW (HA! Talk about irony.) has been exposed to being in entertainment, but it's pretty vague.
