Inject and suppress the human feeling
Love, hate, and sorrow leads us to eradication
Mankind survives, to see another lifetime
What is the final price our people will be paying'

Our lives so colorless and ruled with false devotion
Destroying anything that triggers our emotion
The enemy is one who feels the world around them
Interrogated, now they're facing their own judgement

Destroying our stimuli Force us too defy all that is human
The serum keeps us pacified Stand to feel alive
Our instinct will take over Annihilation of our feeling
Emancipation our minds healing Determination
Defines existence eradicate with our resistance

If people awake they'll be free from this daydream
Human instinct will break through and keep us feeling
We will not medicate, their grasp will surely crumble
Take back humanity and devastate their power

    Song MeaningEquilibrium is a 2002 American science fiction action film written and directed by Kurt Wimmer. It stars Christian Bale as John Preston, a warrior-priest and enforcement officer in a future dystopia where both feelings and artistic expression are outlawed and citizens take daily injections of drugs to suppress their emotions. After accidentally missing a dose, Preston begins to experience emotions which make him question his own morality and moderate his actions, while attempting to remain undetected by the suspicious society in which he lives. Ultimately he aids a resistance movement using martial arts, which he was taught serving the very regime he is to help overthrow.
    The film co-stars Taye Diggs, Angus Macfadyen, Sean Pertwee, Emily Watson, David Hemmings and Sean Bean. While the film did not perform well at the box office upon its initial release, it has since gained a cult following.
