"Controller" as written by Prong and Scott Albert...
Go ahead and rise above
See how far you get on top
Held down just to impair you
We know who's ahead of the game
You know who'll get the blame
You're in the grip of the controller
Do you really want it all back?
See how far you get on top
Held down just to impair you
It's the fear that you can't do right
See how you lose in your life
Cut down, they will impale you
Can you really get it on track?
You tried to make it all stop
Time will tell how much they denied you
You just got burnt by the controller
You'll never know how to react
You're sucked to the very last drop
Time will tell what has been denied you
Are you clear in your mind and sight?
Are you clear right out of your head?
Just angry at the things that have failed you
So you want to get it all back
You tried to make it all last
Tied down to control you

    General CommentTo me, this entire album "Rude Awakening" is about the challenges faced by Russia and other ex-Soviet nations during and after the fall of Communism.

    So this song is about the mindset created during the Soviet regimes to control people, and how it can persist in the culture through the damage it did even after the Communist government itself had fallen.

    Of course, it also reads as a straightforward description of dealing with psychotic authority in any form, including that authority within ourselves - that inner mirror of outward authority that can become ingrained within us, like Stockholm syndrome. That if we're not careful, can continue to hold us back and constrain our lives.
