"Pariah Under Glass" as written by and Nathan Gray Rob Avery....
Symbolized patronized and then tossed out to dry
Revolution or humiliation
Promise of the bread the wine a life that shines
If only they vote in the proper direction
Pick them up from the floor to get knocked down again
When you're bored with your mission and a new one begins

Ride, your new thrill ride
Smug, it suits you well
God, in your new science lab
Master, of your new promised land

Echo care and fake some tears to show up your opponent
Throwing bones with bread and circus to disguise the proof
You only empower yourself when those in need
Become your new test subjects in your smear campaign 101
Recycle control from their hands to your own every word is dropping empty

Promise again
Focus away
From day to day
For your own ends
Their means are dying

Shame, the act is old
Count, your saintly servant calls
Saint, for your own rewards
Bring, the mercy merchants down

    General CommentI think this song is about how politicians and religious figures will appeal to the masses and exploit them to have thier will carried out. "promise the bread, the wine, the life that always shines if they vote in the proper direction" points at this, as does "For your own ends, their means are dying", the chorus, and the overall message of the song.
