"Clones" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them
The devil's in the ways we live

It's all chemicals by and large it's not you
Or your excitement
I'm caught trading blows and climbing walls for a view
Out of resentment

You're just a clone of them,
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them,
The devil's in the ways we live

But this sadness you saw in us
Comes honestly from foreign worlds
There's too many muddy feet
It's all too easy counting

So in the end, if I hold the fate, you hold a chance
Never admit, I'd simply ascend
To see what the soul looks like in the end
After all

We need a change I feel
From this saga of old past blandness
Maybe I'll tase myself
Wake up from this maze of lies built up

You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them
The devil's in the ways we live
(After all, what do I know)
(After all, what do I know)

You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire

    General CommentThe song touches on the criticism that Chevelle have received from some quarters that they are just clones of acts such as progressive-metal band Tool. Pete Loeffler explained to Artist Direct: "It's about getting s--t from peers and people saying that you're ripping somebody else off. As you're coming up in the world of music, you're going to get a lot of s--t. People are trying to figure out what you are and what you're doing, and they want to label you. I'm thumbing my nose at that conversation. A lot of people will still say that we sound like Tool. It happens every time we put an album out. I'm certainly not going for that; I'm trying to be honest with what I like to play. 'Clones' touches on that a lot." -taken from songfacts website

    General CommentHaha I love how someone throws in an - according to himself - "obvious" Christian meaning, when the artists themselves have a total different idea about the song. I know music can have different effects and can evoke several feelings and interpretations, but DON'T put something like that down as a fact. Just say that to YOU it reminds you of the bible. Fine with that, but don't think for the artists or other fans.

    General Commentbeautiful song and as a Christian this song speaks a lot. This album is a lot like Point #1 in that it seems Chevelle took another Apostolic approach to its lyrics (something they strayed from on their last few) This song's understanding is obvious. It relates to their other song Envy. The secular world is clones of each other. The artist is lost in the drugs and the devils way. If u listen to this song and Envy back and forth you get the meaning they of this album. They will believe in their God and the rest can do what it will but they "from their lyrics" they will ascend and they will be on top in the other world.
