Easily my favorite track on the album, though Hypnotist comes close.


"show me how the robots dance
while we are celebrating this illusion
show me how to love and i'll show you how to beg
together we could jump through hoops"


The song expresses a wish to be dumbed-down, to be reduced to normality. To settle down, in less poetic terms. It's a nihilistic sentiment--nothing matters, perhaps nothing is real to begin with, but it's worth it to live out the illusion if you've got something (or someone) else to hold on to.

This is the contrast of depravity and pointlessness with a sense of redemption, and I think few people could find that completely without worth or interest.
