...And I woke up in a blur and was tied up,
Adrenaline scorching inside,
As it raced through my veins
I was coughing up blood
The worst part was that I had no recollection whatsoever of what, or who brought me here
And why
But before I could make any sense of this situation, I heard it all loudly and clearly;
"I resent your vile existence!
I truly despise what I've designed and you're a major factor in that, kid."
I saw an elder man, or the reflection of my future self.
That's when it all came back to me;
The bar, the magnum, the shots of J.D...
Perdition's rhetorical theory:
"To give into everyday's decline, unscathed, that was just free will!"

"Your name is of no importance to me anymore,
This is how I perceive you and your kin; blood, tissues, tubes and fat.
A most simplistic schematic, grotesquely heightened by desires and wires.
Worship my pores, my sweat...
Palpable like my overgrowing distaste for mankind."

During his lecture, I abruptly spring free from my shackles and with fear as a weapon strangled all life out of the elder man.
The poignant scenario of a dying breed and its dilemmas.
The seed overcoming its fate, and overpowering its sovereign.
"Fuck the Scriptures; I'm questioning the question, through murder; it took me five seconds to climb Babel's Tower."

    General CommentThis song references quotes from both the graphic novel Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Friedrich Nietzsche.
    I think it was originally written by their ex-vocalist and then adapted into this song by their new one.

    Anyway, the meaning seems pretty clear...a guy wakes up to find himself tied up in a room with an old man and he has no idea where he is or how he got there. The old man starts to lecture him on various things but the guy breaks loose of the knots that tie him and he jumps up and strangles the old man and escapes.
