Awake to the sound of emptiness
Alone and in a room that's filled with the darkest of light
I was told there was nothing beyond here
How do I know what side I'm on
How do I know what side I'm on
How do I know what side I'm on
How do I know what side I'm on

Breathe
A captive with nothing but the thoughts engraved in my skin
I don't belong here
But I can't find my exit

This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
Where they come to hunt me down
They hunt me down

Weigh up the options
? the new world
I know what you're thinking
Come on man, I swear you can do this
Come on man, I swear you can do this
I break free from this room they built for me
I break free from this room they built for me

This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
Where they come to hunt me down
They hunt me down

I tore out my naive eyes
So they locked me up
Preying on the innocent
Preying on the innocent

    General CommentThis song is about the Illuminati. There is references in this song, also, they have a shirt they are releasing on their online store that has symbolism of the illuminati. The illuminati's goals are all about establishing a "New World Order" or unified Government.

    Also - the lyrics aren't complete. These should be the correct lyrics...


    Awake to the sound of emptiness.
    Alone in a room that is filled with the darkest of light.
    I was told there was nothing beyond here.
    How do I know what side I'm on?
    Breathe!
    A captive with nothing but the thoughts engraved in my skin
    I dont belong here
    But I cant find my exit.

    This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
    Where they go to hunt me down, they hunt me down

    Weigh out the options
    Pave the new world
    I know what you're thinking
    Come on man I swear you can do this
    Come on man I swear you can do this
    I break free from this room they built for me
    I break free from this room they built for me

    This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
    Where they go to hunt me down, they hunt me down

    I tore out my lying eyes
    So they locked me up
    I tore out my lying eyes
    So they locked me up
    Preying on the innocent

    General CommentI hear this

    Awake to the sound of emptiness
    Alone and in a room that's filled with the darkest of light
    I was told there was nothing beyond here
    How do I know what side I'm on (x4)



    Breathe
    A captive with nothing but the thoughts engraved in my skin
    I don't belong here
    But I can't find my exit

    This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
    Where they come to hunt me down
    They hunt me down

    Weigh out the options
    Brave the new world
    I know what you're thinking
    Come on man, I swear you can do this(x2)

    I break free from this room they built for me(x2)

    This is where they all come to hunt me down, hunt me down
    Where they come to hunt me down
    They hunt me down

    I tore out my lying eyes
    So they locked me up
    I tore out my lying eyes
    So they locked me up
    Preying on the innocent(x2)

    General CommentThe lyrics for this section should be:

    "I tore out my NAIVE eyes, so they locked me up."

    It's in the background of one of their new press pictures on Facebook.

    Here's the direct link:

    General CommentAnd also, I agree with truthbeyonddarkness.

    The first time I heard this and read the lyrics along with it, that was exactly what I thought. It seems to be referring to the Illuminati with lines such as, "Pave the new world," and "I tore out my naive eyes, so they locked me up ... Preying on the innocent."

    General CommentIt seems pretty clear to me that UO is referring to the Illuminati with this song...any thoughts on that? I mean, what is your interpretation of that? Are they coming out against it? Are they warning of it? Telling about it? I can't quite tell, so any help would be appreciated.

    General CommentI was just watching these videos that Spencer did, talking about each song on the album. For this song, he says that he wanted to talk about kids who are brought up and basically have beliefs forced onto them from an early age and then when they get older, become jaded and turned off by it instead of being able to embrace beliefs that they have come to on their own. I feel like that helps the lyrics make a lot of sense - to me anyway.
