Crossing the line into the other side
Emerging as prisoners
To the emptiness of the time
To the left and to the right
From behind - They're out of sight

Plunging into a new found
Age of advanced observeillance
A world-wide, foolproof cage


Privacy and intimacy as we know it
Will be a memory
Among many to be passed down
To those who never knew
Living in the pupil of 1,000 eyes

Was it overlooked in front of all our faces?
Now, the mistakes and secrets
Cannot be erased

Viewing the blind complexity
By which laws were justified
To erase simplicity

To the left and to the right
From behind, they're out of sight

Plunging into a new found
Age of advanced observeillance
A world-wide, foolproof cage
Privacy and intimacy as we know it
Will be a memory
To those who never knew
Among many to be passed down


Living in the pupil of 1,000 eyes(echo)
We are enslaved now

    The new age in which we live, where everybody knows what you are doing at any given time. The song sepculates that this will extend to the extent where surviellance is a manditory aspect of everyday life, and that we will be ensalved to the government through our lack of privacy and individuality

    This song is about surveillance, about the people in power watching over the common man's every move, every word, every action, destroying privacy, intimacy and peace of mind in the process.

    The advent of high density information sharing through means such as Facebook and other social networks has given governments and big corporations power over our information like they never had before, and only they know what they mean to do with all that. Whenever their scams are discovered by people such as Edward Snowden and others, they'll attempt to take measures to make the person in question "disappear".

    Funny how Chuck managed to predict what the American government has been doing with the internet in the last few years.
