"Triangle" as written by Dino Campanella, Gavin Hayes, Mark Engles and Drew Roulette....
We're born into silence and let it all be
Lift your anchor and just float astray
Born into silence and let it all be
Fortune in silence

Watch it explode
While fragments of ironies examples fly
And hit the shore
And tyranny's torn
From the podiums where leaders stand
But rule no more

Plead with nothing while they lecture about something
Protest the way we're passive today

Watch it explode
While it's not impossible
For flowers to bloom and grow next to graves
And babies are born
In the same buildings where people go
To pass away
Pass away

Plead with nothing while they lecture about something
Protest the way we're passive today

We live like penguins in the desert
Why can't we live like tribes
We live like penguins in the desert
Why can't we live like tribes

We live like penguins in the desert
Why can't we live like tribes
We live like penguins in the desert
Why can't we live like tribes

Born into silence and let it all be
Lift your anchor and just float astray
Born into silence and let it all be
Fortune in silence

    General CommentI see this song as a spiritual description of the cycle of life, with hints here and there of a society that has succumbed to passivism.

    I've always noticed that when staying silent, I can observe the environment around me so much more. Whether that be humans, plant life, or anything- I just feel the environment. We ARE born into silence.

    But, the "born into silence" portion can also be about generations being born into a passive environment. The silence could represent the silent majority of this land, where mostly everyone succumbs to their surroundings, and leaves issues unstated. These newly borns are surrounded by humans who "live like penguins in the desert", and many may follow the penguins lead.

    The chorus sounds like it is in the perspective of someone who is passive. It almost gives a hopeless vibe: that no matter what, it is impossible to escape the slumber we have fallen into.

    There are so many things that could be said about this song, and there are also a bunch of ways of taking the lyrics. Who can know for sure? My absolute favorite Dredg song.
