[V1:]
Disgusted by your weakness
You have no right to live
To know you is to hate you
But your life's yours to give

[Pre-Chorus:]
You monkey see, you monkey do
You're always doing what they tell you to
You're such a puppet on string
You don't get it!

[Chorus:]
I won't bow to something that I've never seen
I can't believe in something that doesn't believe in me
I'm not blood of your blood, I'm no son of your god
I've no faith in your fate
Still I find salvation

[V2:]
You think you have the answers to every last detail
In your eyes, you're the victor
In mine you've only failed

[Pre-Chorus:]
You monkey see, you monkey do
You're always doing what they tell you to
You're such a puppet on string
You don't get it!
You monkey see, you monkey do
You're always doing what they tell you to
You're such a puppet on string
You don't get it!

[Chorus:]
I won't bow to something that I've never seen
I can't believe in something that doesn't believe in me
I'm not blood of your blood, I'm no son of your god
I've no faith in your fate
Still I find salvation
Still I find salvation
Still I find salvation

    Lots of different opinions on here. The song is about whatever you want it to be. God, your wife, your company, your boss, whatever.

    Salvation is to be saved by god specially if you are suffering or feeling lost or unsafe. Salvation can also be defined as the state of being safe against evil.

    The song means there is no god. I agree. All you posters trying to distort the lyrics, just stop. Deal with it.

    Very late response, but bustass, you are very wrong. It is indeed, to every last detail. And you are wrong about the other part too lol. These lyrics are correct as far as that goes. ghostz, you're wrong as well. The only person who has made a "correct" correction to these lyrics is 'me'. (lol)
