Anothers hope, anothers game,
Anothers loss, anothers gain,
Anothers lies, anothers truth,
Anothers doubt, anothers proof.
Anothers left, anothers right,
Anothers peace, anothers fight,
Anothers name, anothers aim,
Anothers fall, anothers fame.
Anothers pride, anothers shame,
Anothers love, anothers pain,
Anothers hope, anothers game,
Anothers loss, anothers gain.
Anothers lies, anothers truth,
Anothers doubt, anothers proof.
Anothers left, anothers right,
Anothers peace, anothers fight.
Marx had an idea from the confusion of his head,
Then there were a thousand more waiting to be led.
The books are sold, the quotes are bought,
You learn them well and then you're caught.
Anothers left, anothers right,
Anothers peace, anothers fight.
Mussolini had an idea from the confusion of his heart,
Then there were a thousand more waiting to play their part.

The stage was set, the costumes worn,
And another empire of destruction born.
Anothers name, anothers aim,
Anothers fall, anothers fame.
Jung had an idea from the confusion of his dreams,
Then there were a thousand more waiting to be seen.
You're not yourself the theory says,
But I can help, your complex pays.
Anothers hope, anothers game,
Anothers loss, anothers gain.
Satre had an idea from the confusion in his brain,
Then there were a thousand more indulging in his pain.
Revelling in isolation and existential choice;
How can you be alone if you use anothers voice?
Anothers lies, anothers truth,
Anothers doubt, anothers proof.
The idea born in someone's mind
Is nurtured by a thousand blind
Anonymous beings, vacuous souls,
Do you fear the confusion, your lack of control?
You lift your arm to write a name,
So caught up in the identity game.
Who do you see? Who do you watch?
Who's your leader? Which is your flock?
Who do you watch? Who do you watch?
Who's your leader? Which is your flock?
Einstein had an idea from the confusion of his knowledge,
Then there were a thousand more turning to advantage.
They realised that their god was dead,
So they reclaimed power through the bomb instead.
Anothers code, anothers brain,
They'll shower us all in deadly rain.
Jesus had an idea from the confusion of his soul,
Then there were a thousand more waiting to take control.
The guilt is sold, forgiveness bought,
The cross is there as your reward.
Anothers love, anothers pain,
Anothers pride, anothers shame.
Do you watch at a distance from the side you have chosen?
Whose answers serve you best? Who'll save you from the confusion?
Who will leave you an exit and a comfortable cover?
Who will take you too the edge, but never drop you over?

    General Commentpretty much people have a differant opnion on whats good and whats bad regardless of who is right in a situation, people who are wrong are often trying to do good but not realizing the truth.

    it also speaks of figures who had their ideas of "good" turned into the ways to profit. great song, my favorite off of penis envy

    General CommentWhat do people think about the message of this song versus that of Reality Asylum? This seems to be presenting Jesus in a positive light, as a character with good ideas that were turned back on themselves, corrupted into something they were never meant to be. Reality Asylum exposes Jesus as a sexist, self-righteous bastard who got what he deserved. Personally, I have to assume that Reality Asylum was, apparently, not an attack on Jesus per se but on Christians and their interpretations of his teachings.

    General CommentIt's about how whenever a philosopher or other thinker comes along, trying to solve their own confusion, other people twist their ideas instead of really thinking for themselves.
