Dancers to a Discordant system
Listen to the hidden tune
The essence of lies in note defined
As we dance to the dissonant sway
The choreography refined
Will subdued and shackled
Reason washed aside
Pledging our love to the chains
Our ignorance ever amplified

Blooded hands lead the waltz
We're trapped in the out of tune swirl
Still we set the show on continue mode
And dance to a discordant system

We accept the nails we're fed
Lies sharpened to bleed us silent
Muted from the pains
Defiance employed in vain
Any attempts to leave the dance
Invisibly suppressed
Questions unasked, we learn the steps
Eyes shut like all the rest

Unsuspecting, willing, blind, controllable herd
Pawns in a covert game conducted by hands we trust
Dominated, compliant and deceptable
Confident that we matter, we don't see that we're but dust

Committed to a lie we cannot see, cannot know nor comprehend
We're all asinine drones kept in the dark, kept in line

Confined, bereft of reason
Withering in toxicity
The deadly fumes deceit
And we all reek of complicity
Humbled, brought to our knees
By the weight of our own guilt
Our innocent ways the catalyst
To injustice and inhumanity

We dance, to appease
Compete in stupidity

Obscured faces file our points
Numbers fed to the machine
Still we stand in line for the next show
The human spine liquefied
What are we, but stupefied
Dancers to a discordant system

We believe, so we're misled
We assume, so we're played
We confide, so we're deceived
We trust, so we're betrayed

    General CommentA prospective at the world: we are all drones, the protagonist too. A summary of the album.

    The music in the end, when the vocals have quit, is in fact the waltz, reminding the listener that this affects him too, he shouldn't just discard the album and move on with his life.

    Those were my perceptions on the album: as a concept album about the destruction and rewiring of an enlightened man, that enlightent then serving as the point of the album; that we are all just float with the stream, consumed by a vision of life laid out by those before us, already programmed and running, impossible to change.
