"Manichee" as written by and Marc Okubo Maxwell D Schad....
We should not expect
The worst from ourselves
Or it's all we'll receive
We should not descend
Below our own selves
We'll get trapped underneath
We lie in suffrage
We're treated as mistakes
Feeling defeated
With crippled spirits
But we refuse to break
Our hearts not depleted
No control
We're unsustainable
On the ropes
Fighting and capable
Standing at the edge
Are we still worth it
No control
We're non retainable
Lost in smoke
But we're not replaceable
Clinching to our pledge
We are not worthless
Weakness overwhelms us all
Tranquil thoughts will overcome

    My InterpretationFirst let's start with song's titles meaning - Manichee is an archaic term for Manichaean which is an adjective relating to Manichaeism - of or characterized by dualistic contrast or conflict between opposites. (Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness.Through an ongoing process that takes place in human history, light is gradually removed from the world of matter and returned to the world of light, whence it came. Its beliefs were based on local Mesopotamian Gnostic and religious movements.)

    I think this song inspired by Manichaeism is about the struggle in all of us to remain the best we can be despite facing the greatest of odds. To remain also spiritual & good even when surrounded or even taunted by evil (opposite forces). It's about never crumbling & being defeated no matter how tall the task may seem, always remaining centered & hopeful.
