Within these walls I am confined.
Thrust over our eyes solely to blind.
Is it trespassing when we feel at home?
Amongst the truth which remains untold?

Who is the arbiter in this
Travesty you choose to dismiss?
You have people running for their lives.
The hatred you feed contrives…

Everybody and their lives

When we tread on through
Fields of green, lakes of crystal,
Motion turmoil of umber and life.

When we tread on through
Fields of green, lakes of crystal,
Motion turmoil of umber and life.

When we tread on through
Fields of green, lakes of crystal,
Motion turmoil of umber and life.

With our doubt still intact.
Curious of new discoveries which you’ve left unproven.
It keeps me up at night. A fault or flaw. I slight.
Am I the casualty of my own circumstance?

Such is life,
You’ll be soon to see.
Yet to suffer an epiphany.

Such is life,
You’ll be soon to see.
Yet to suffer an epiphany.

I see my purpose now,
To reproduce somehow.
Lobotomise myself,
Break the boy my mother spat out.
I’m not a patron saint,
Never something so quaint.
You’re not a god to man but to the robots you forsake.

I see my purpose now,
To reproduce somehow.
Lobotomise myself,
Break the boy my mother spat out.
I’m not a patron saint,
Never something so quaint.
You’re not a god to man but to the robots you forsake.

    My InterpretationIMO, this song is more cut and dry than to be perceived by the lyrics. A person he/ she (subject) was in a relationship with wanted the princess-like, fairytale relationship. The perception that society, embodied by entertainment industry standards, holds as a "standard".

    People forget who they are. They're droned into who they should be... and act.

    This "subject" fell in love with a silhouette that eventually gave up on him/ her. My guess - cheating. (Don't know any other way).
