"The Cell" as written by and Mario Francois Duplantier Joseph Andrew Duplantier....
All this evil, victimfied
You're not alone
You're not the only one
Overcrowded in your pain
You find a way out, or you won't fall

Get me out of here
I've been lost in the dark
Get me out of here
I'm lost in silence

No control over anything
I'm dying to learn
I'm dying to forget
Overcrowded in my mind
I have to let it go now

Get me out of here
I've been lost in the dark
Get me out of here
No

Overcrowded in our minds
We'll find a way out
Right now
Now

Now

    Song MeaningI saw an interview with Mario where he said that the meaning of this song is the epidemic of people addicted to their phones and glued to a 5 inch screen - and a film clip around this idea was conceptualized but never realized.

    Instead, the concept appeared fleetingly in the film clip for Stranded where a character is looking into a hand held mirror which signifies the phone.

    From a lyrics perspective, I think Mario and Joe take this concept further and say that all the distractions of the digital world are making us more introspective ("I'm locked inside me") and preoccupied ("Overcrowded in your brain") with trivial material diversions.

    "Get me out of here", "find a way out", "I have to let it go" - divorce yourself from these trappings and be free - Truly *free*.
