"Manipulation" as written by Burton C. Bell, Dino A.m. Cazares and Raymond Herrera....
Your conniving words
Are childishly insane
To get what you want
You'll say anything
In your mind
You lust to control me
You lust
For control

Mold me, fold me
Mold me, fold me

My pain is your pleasure
My agony excites you
Desperate for a change
But change comes within
I'm not staying
Not around you
I'm stronger than you think
Much stronger than you


Molding and folding
Lusting for control

Longing to control
Those without esteem
Ignorant pawns
Of your pathetic dreams

Dying to control
Those without esteem
Ignorant pawns
Of your pathetic dreams

Molding and folding
Lusting for control

Hatred is a tool
Thoughtlessly you use
Ruin an only friend
With misleading rules
Contain your own rage
Give yourself praise
'Cause you have no shame
With your callous game

    General CommentGiven Fear Factory's obsession with machines is this a a concept story of sorts?? That is a man and their computer ... and as the computer/machine evolves it learns human traits such as manipulation??

    Of course the whole point of the machine themes in their music is to highlight the flaws and issues of humanity. As @pirateballoon points out there are plenty of people out there willing to unashamedly exploit others for their personal gain.
