We are the insect
We are the insect, breeding
We are the insect
We are the insect, breeding

A fire burns
In the back of
The throat
Let it out, let it out
Before the
Choke

Dusk dismantled
Combustion's convergence with our existence
Dusk dismantled
We are the infinitesimal

Bursting inside out
Bursting from the inside out
Bursting inside out
Bursting from the inside out

I dig a hole
Through what's left of
My world
Searching for, something more
I turn it
Inwards

Dusk dismantled
Combustion's convergence with our existence
Dusk dismantled
We are the infinitesimal

I'm falling, I'm falling
In this colossal void
Each day that I spent digging downward
Built me up for a higher fall

Dusk dismantled
Combustion's convergence with our existence
Dusk dismantled
We are the infinitesimal

Dusk dismantled
Dusk dismantled
Dusk dismantled
Dusk dismantled
Combustion's convergence with our existence

    I think its part about the end of things. Talking about "combustion's convergence (an explosion) with our existence" sounds like a nuclear holocaust of sorts. Dusk being dismantled meaning an end to all things. 'digging a hole through what's left of [the] world' could either mean something about surviving in the aftermath or it could be a metaphor about how selfish we are and such a mentality leads up to our own end (via thermonuclear war or whatever). Seeing as how this theme is prevalent in a few of their other songs, i think its plausible that this song is about that as well. Just my take...

    I think this song is almost an analysis of everyday life and living in general.

    "We are the infinitesimal." Tells me that, we are indeed tiny, tiny minute beings who really have no importance in the overall picture. Much like the lyric:

    "We are the insect.
    We are the insect, breeding."

    This too somewhat resembles the infinitesimal side of things.

    As mentioned, I think this song is just explaining the limit of our seemingly pointless existence, and that no matter what we do, we will never achieve true importance.

    " I'm falling, I'm falling
    In this colossal void
    Each day that I spent digging downward
    Built me up for a higher fall."
