"Guilty" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Never fear the truth, or a lie correctly used
When everything you do comes back three times to you
By any other name, the guilty still remain
Suspended in the feign, pawn to his own intentions

[Chorus]
Still hidden in the fold
The story bought and sold
Commodified indoctrinate expendables into the splendid lie.
Bound by the chain of lies you've wrapped around you

You're trapped in regression
Dying in the face of the truth
Stoic in silence we're blind inside the void
Ruins remind us of all we've destroyed
Dead rail no way back from here
The mainline to nowhere

[Chorus]

You're just gluing your amber eyes shut
As the world keeps spinning around your cage
While you're waiting for the ghost, waiting for the ghost to bite
Bite, waiting for the ghost to bite
Bite, waiting for the ghost to bite

Still spinning in the veil
Locked in beyond the pale
Internalize and fabricate escapable
Into the deadly lie
Bound by the chain of lies
Filled with aggression, watch you die in the face of the truth.
Bound by the chain of lies you've wrapped around you
You're trapped in regression
Dying in the face of the truth

    My InterpretationThis song (in my opinion) is about what happens when you lie. Only if the lie is big enough, though. In saying, "commodified, indoctrinate expendables into the splendid lie," it is saying that expendables (soldiers most often) are manipulated into situations which don't even exist, and could or do die because of it. After that, people will give you a lot of trouble about it, "When everything you do comes back three times to you." Also, by saying, "Bound by the chain of lies you've wrapped around you," it says that once you have said/done something, you are bound to your word/actions. And "Waiting for the ghost to bite," means that you are waiting for the inevitable consequences of your stupid actions.
