"Securitron (police State 2000)" as written by Burton C. Bell, Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers....
Invade and encompass to judge and dissect
Witness and persecute to serve and protect
To serve, and protect to serve
To serve, and protect to serve

Watchful and aware, constrain every movement
Admit the consequences, freedom's an illusion

Where is security governed through scrutiny?
Your privacy denied, organized and confined!
No place to hide!
No place to hide!

There is no place to hide
Plugged in your mind
Conformed design

To concede your rights
Concede your mind
Surrender to authority

'All must abide and all must adhere'
Future oppression becoming more clear
This is a warning so you must take heed
This coming vision is reality

Where is security governed through scrutiny?
Your privacy denied, organized and confined!
No place to hide!
No place to hide!

    General CommentIn early 2006, USA Today reported that several major telephone companies were cooperating with the National Security Agency to monitor the phone records of U.S. citizens. This report came on the heels of allegations that the U.S. government had been conducting electronic surveillance of domestic telephone calls without warrants. Many of the phone companies listed in the reported have refutted this claim. [1]

    Traffic cameras, installed in 18 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. and meant to help enforce traffic laws at intersections, have also sparked some controversy. [2] There have been reports that the NSA has been gathering information on financial records, internet surfing habits, monitoring e-mails, and surveillance on social networks such as Myspace[3].

    This NSA monitoring program is based on the ECHELON system which has been in operation for 10 years. This uses advanced antenna and computers technology. The ECHELON program has also been used to conduct economic espionage on France.

    General CommentThis was the song that opened my eyes to Fear Factory. What power.

    In terms of meaning, I think it is fair to say that it is about the degradation of social liberties on a massive scale, possibly a warning of things to come:

    "All must abide and all must adhere"
    Future oppression becoming more clear
    This is a warning so you must take heed
    This coming vision is reality"

    Burton's right too. Look at the new laws introduced under the disguise of anti-terrorism - people can be detained without a fair trial and subjected to torture methods to extract a "confession". And the examples Num_shadow raised is a good point too.

    What an awesome song. Thank you Fear Factory.

    General CommentThis is from wikipedia (and is definitely correct):

    "The Securitron are the antagonists in the story and their name is part of the album's song, "Securitron (Police State 2000)".

    In the story, they serve as law enforcement, governmental leaders and are deadset in keeping humanity in-line. Securitron is an actual organization that controls the police of the future, the Police 2000 and also Smasher/Devourer. It is the increased use and abuse of machinery by humanity that caused them to come into existence. They appear to be all over the world and to ensure no crime is gone un-seen, they have set large monitors in various places to keep humanity under their view. This is much like how The Party in Nineteen Eighty-Four utilized the telescreens on the population of Oceania. They themselves are likely cyborgs and also appear to be draining the Earth's resources. Despite keeping humanity under control, their true plans seem to lean on making humanity extinct.

    They come out victorious against Edgecrusher as in the end of the album they capture and imprison him."

    General CommentIt's very creepy that such a blatantly realistic song has so few comments after all these years... The masses are still hiding from the truth I guess... =P
