"The Audience" as written by and Claudio Sanchez....
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm the lie you use
Surrounded by snakes and talking sharks
Be mindful the words you choose

Their eyes reflecting with purpose, calling
Welcome to the feast
Will you follow their actions and play games
And as they step will you repeat formalities

Thieves of our time
Watch as they rape your integrity
March as the beat suggests
Time ticks forward, towards the bottom of undoing all that
I once loved come take your piece of me, blood or bone
No matter, I'll still be here when you're

Don't cross the story you were always a maybe
Here they'll know absolutes
Oh used and abused now left for show
They lie from their perch to let you know
There's no letting go

Thieves of our time
Watch as they rape your integrity
March as the beat suggests
Time ticks forward, towards the bottom of undoing all that
I once loved come take your piece of me, blood or bone
No matter, I'll still be here when you're
Done

Be here when you're
Done
Be here when you're

This is my audience
Forever one together burning stars
Cut from the same disease
Ever longing, what and who we are

This is the story of a boy who lost his way and found the

Unstruck, his courage lost
Damaged goods, a trust now long pre

This is my audience
Forever one together burning stars
Cut from the same disease
Ever longing, what and who we are

Take all matters into your own hands
And I, and I, I let them play with the coward who can command
And I, I, I now you're just a memory
Of humanity

(The audience, I will show all of myself)

This is my audience
Forever one together burning stars
Cut from the same disease
Ever longing, what and who we are

This is my audience
Forever one together burning stars
Cut from the same disease
Ever longing, what and who we are

    My InterpretationHe could be referring to society in general, music industry people or fans in general. Probably all of the above in different forms in the song.
