Dying swans, twisted wings
Beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life
In this garden of fear
I have seen many things
In a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more
Bring this savage back home

Wilderness, house of pain
Makes no sense of it all
Close this mind, dull this brain
Messiah before his fall
What you see is not real
Those who know will not tell
All is lost, sold your souls
To this brave new world

A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world

Dragon kings, dying queens
Where is salvation now?
Lost my life, lost my dreams
Rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams, laughing here
Dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned
In this brave new world

A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world

A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world

Dying swans, twisted wings
Bring this savage back home

    General CommentHmm, I've listened to this song, and once i get intrigued by a song, I have to learn to play it on guitar, once that happens I need to understand the lyrics; so bear with me as a pull this out of my ass.

    Basically my point of view is that a "Brave New World"
    is a world where even though knowing the old world failed, it's still keeping march forward with so much courage. It's a world which you are brought in to and made into someones shall we say "guinea pig" to live in a setting where nothing is for sure. In this case Society is that someone who owns you, society and secrecy.You have no leisures nor rights to freedom, so looks have no importance, here everyone is the same: dying by the hand and ignorance of that which owns you. Separatism probably plays an elaborate schism too which explains the losing of love, and a mothers love. My vision of a new world as this also depicts science being a method of introducing life onto the world hence, mother love is just a myth. Home would probably be the rejoicing heavens, so "bring this savage back home" could be a plea for death. "Wilderness house of pain" since it's in my personal experience I'd say a house of pain would be a place where one could drug oneself to ease a pain; with wilderness attached to it, the drug usage could most likely be overwhelming. House of pain, a place to negate all your basic knowledge and everything you think is not, as to make "no sense of it at all". Once again the "close this mind dull this brain" is explaining the usage of drugs. "Messiah before his fall" to me means that this person didn't ever dream of drugging himself bu- omg... It is true. Back to the matter at hand. Leaving it as a last resort so his mind can't be changed he drugs himself and gets ready. Ok, so society is hiding something and that's what makes this place so unforgiving. People have no longer right over their life, basically their souls aren't theirs either. "Dragon kings, dying queens" Dragons; symbolizing either royalty and importance, high caste etiqutte, ferocious beings. Queens falling; all this means to me is that while leaders of society bathe in the pride of their work, women die inside for loss of their children. Proving this to be a sin, salvation is looked at as a far achievement "where is salvation now". Life is lost to inhumane reasons, and so dreams can only depict what is truly unruly impossible. (being as it is a dream can be achieved yet this setting is so harsh that hope can't stand a chance against oppression). "rip the bones from my flesh" comes to me as a statement of challenging sarcasm, like saying "you can take my life, my love, my freedom, well heck you can surely rip the bones from my flesh (ironic for I can't imagine bones being ripped from- flesh... it would be the other way around but this gives you the image of how far this society can go in to cruelty.)" "Silent screams-- laughing here" Screaming is a freedom, and so this society takes your right to this, covering it with laughs. "Dying to tell you the truth" I can imagine a rebel or a rumored crazy person screaming out the truth about the world, and so is sent to execution. "You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world"
    Your life is already decided for you, and you have no word in it, so you are damned for that reason. the last verse "dying swans twisted wings bring this salvage back home" (truly ironic just read) Ok so we have established that beauty here is not an issue nor a right, so our character is committing suicide OR just dying by the hands of secrecy society, and is letting out a last "prayer" bring this savage home... Heavens... So ok here let me pretend im the character.

    (Dying, on the ground eyes closed)

    So I've done all of what I could to escape this society and to help others know about this unreal reality. I tried to give the chance of precise knowledge of the world we live in... this brave new world?
    Brave it is and new too... but can it be called a world?
    Have I failed so miserably? Is there no other price?
    Yes there is... I've earned my right to faith.
    In this place I pray to be saved, to be taken to a place far yet so near.

    -Flatline-

    "Bring this savage back home" the last prayer. The earned right. The eternal prize.
