Let's fake an answer for the curious,
Let's fake it all for the fame.
They'll think delivering was easy,
Living the fairy tales and the lies, lies

Message from Opticon
Blast from the Fashion Bomb
So helpless,
guess what you're out of... time
New alien spawn
We reinvent the dawn
And no one's style compares
Those neon eyes
Make mom and dad think
that we've lost our minds
They're just terrified of all new things
Opticon is here to lead us
Opticon is in control
So quick to change us
And imitate us

    General Commentopticon is the media, & it's talking about how the industry tries to mold artists into what they think is good to make more money
    read it again, you'll see ;)

    General CommentI think this one is about how something as simple (or complicated) as "Opticon" can lead and take over one's mind. Hence, "Opticon is here to lead us / Opticon is in control."

    General Comment"opticon" is like a new god... it controls your mind but you dont care. Maybe opticon stands for something else...

    General CommentMaybe Opticon is our new said by Opticon is here to lead us. I got the meaning of Opticon is our perception(if we were in a cult) and also the leader.

    General CommentThis song sounds very industrial. It reminds me of the corporate failure Enron (it's monopolization, domination, and eventual bankrupcy)

    General CommentOpticon is about the way Orgy dresses, their style and how people might jump to conclusions about how they dress (mainly their sexuality).

    General CommentI always got the idea that this song is about style and fashion and how it seems to rule our lives. "here to lead us" is just one of the many faces that style hides behind. The media, as digitalstitches said, is part of it too. Shaping people's minds, the Britney Spears image etc. Ah well, she sucks and Orgy doesn't.

    General CommentI thoroughly agree with Emmelstone. Also I think the word "Opticon" is derived from "Optic..." which is of course to do with vision and light. So Opticon is the visual image of other people and how they dress, so when suddenly that changes you're too late to keep up with the change, so the "blast from the fashion bomb" metaphor comes into play. You have a panicked reaction because you can't keep up with the trends.
