Okay

I'm feeling the way that I'm feeling myself
Fuck everyone else
Gotta remember that nobody is better than anyone else, here
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
Look what they do to you
Look what they do to me
Must be joking if you think that either one is free, here

Get up off your knees, girl
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you want
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)

I'm ready for love and I'm ready for war
But I'm ready for more
I know that nobody's ever been this fucking ready before, hey
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
So figure it out or don't figure it out
I figured it out
The bigger the river (the bigger the river)
The bigger the drought (the bigger the drought)

Get up off your knees, boy
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you want
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)

Fire world, I love you
Fire world

I'm up off my knees, girl
I'm face to face with myself
And I know who I am
(Hello, my name is human)
I stole my power from the sun
I'm more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)

(I'm not asking questions)
('Cause questions have answers)
(And I don't want answers)
I came down from the stars (so I'll take my chances)
(And what are the chances)
(That I could advance)
(On my own circumstances)
(Said "what are the chances?")
Hello, my name is human (and what are the chances?)
(I don't want your answers)
(I'm not asking questions)
(So you keep your answers)
And I know who I am (so you keep your answers)
(I'm not asking questions)
(I'm taking my chances)

    General CommentI think this song is saying to be who you want to be and believe what you want to believe. No matter what god you believe in your taking your chances on being correct. He knows who he is so he doesn't have any questions and therefor doesn't need their answers.

    My InterpretationHello guys. I had to put the pen on the paper cuz this song has affected on me a lot. I mean a lot. And by the way I'm not a native English speaker so don't judge me please. (Y)

    As I said, this song is a special to me right now. I see it has a certain message: digitalization. The over power of electric weapons and social media has changed us hugely. That's a fact.

    I see that this song is based on quite near future, when everyone loses their personalities and we give in because the social media power is so overwhelming. I can't explain it phrase by phrase but I can read it between the lines. Movies like I, Robot or I am Legend, can tell the story.

    Maybe the whole album is about humane approaches vs. future human beings. I'm not sure. Go figure it out yourself.

    Song MeaningIt's basically saying fuck you to religion. We all came from the stars, Everything in the universe came from the stars. He doesn't need the answers from religion because he knows it's all bullshit.

    He tells "the girl" and "the boy" to stand face to face with their god, which is impossible, and tells them he's up off his knees(no longer praying to a fake god) and is now face to face with himself because he is the one in control, and not some god.

    My InterpretationI take it as a song telling people to stop looking for something bigger to save them and to stand up and take control of their own fate. I don't find it it to be anti religion but rather it's saying that we are humans and we were given the power to correct our own future.

    My InterpretationGet up of your knees girl, stand face to face with YOUR GOD

    Get up off your knees boy, Stand face to face with YOUR GOD.

    I'm up off my knees boy, I'm face to face with MY SELF.

    He is saying there is no god.

    My InterpretationDefine "Disillusion".....
    Verb - cause (someone) to realize that a belief or an ideal is false.
    Synonyms - Enlighten, set straight, open someones eyes....

    Perhaps we can adjust our perspective; see things from a different angle, perhaps under a different light...to see it almost for the first time. Marilyn Manson reflected upon God...He went to God just to see and found he was looking at himself.

    Learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness;
    Chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself

    Stand up from your prayers and find your true God.

    We have been created from a big bang and have evolved into human beings.

    There is no "personified" God.

    I personally find myself more in touch with a God through mother nature and the sun.

    The "sun" of God is our true savior and also categorizes as a "star".

    Feel what you feel and #### everyone else.

    Nobody can tell you how to open your third eye, you'll never find the answer if you're unwilling to see yourself and be rest assured that you're comfortable with what and who you are.

    Take the chance, buy the ticket....take the ride!

    General Commentthis song is all about spirituality and his predestined divine path he signed up to take before birth in order to help spread love and light throughout all of humanity to assist in the awakening process of mankind. after reading the end, I now have the feeling he's looking for an out and desires to travel the path of enlightenment on his own terms. I wish I could be on the level of not needing answers!
