Nevermore - Narcosynthesis

Hypnotize me, mesmerize me
Drain the color from my eyes
Patronize me, energize me
Change the world, internalize

How did it come to this,
Narcosynthesis
How did it come to this,
Narcosynthesis

Alienate me, learn to hate me
Crucify your ideals the flesh is the swine
We are the last ones and we're bleeding
For an unseen god

How did it come to this,
Narcosynthesis
How did it come to this,
Narcosynthesis

Turn my blood to sand
Lives fall through the hourglass and grow cold
What are you searching for?

Turn my dirt to gold
Time the healer the great concealer
Please salvage my soul

Victimize me, vilify me
Vilipend and amend the sins you condign

Vou are nothing and you speak for
All that never was

Turn my blood to sand
Lives fall through the hourglass and grow cold
What are you searching for?

Turn my dirt to gold
Time the healer the great concealer
Please salvage my soul

Vou are nothing and you speak for
All that never was

Turn my blood to sand
Lives fall through the hourglass and grow cold
What are you searching for?

Turn my dirt to gold
Time the healer the great concealer
Please salvage my soul

    It seems to me that the meaning of this song is about how our culture creates narcissism and celebrates it. The term narcosythesis can be interpreted and narco- as a prefix for narcissism and synthesis, form the greek "with" and "placing" to combine our purpose in this culture with narcissism, ultimately making everything about only ones self. A good example of this is in ads, and media theres a lot of flattery and patronizing to get you to buy their products, which can be inferred from the first verse.
