Disintegration constituents to decompose of the parts
A malformation utopia systematic unity can't be achieved

Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame
Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame

We are the deceived
Lost in the foreseen
We are the deceived
Lost in the foreseen

To wait for aforementioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed
Behold your fellow man through centuries of control
Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god

Disintegration constituents to decompose of the parts
A malformation utopia systematic unity can't be achieved

Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame
Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame

We are the deceived
Lost in the foreseen
We are the deceived
Lost in the foreseen

To wait for aforementioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed

Behold your fellow man through centuries of control
Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god


Behold your fellow man through centuries of control
Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god

To wait for aforementioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed

To wait for aforementioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed

    This song is from the point of view of the deceived. They are saying that after death, heaven isnt all that it's cracked up to be. That all of the things we hope for, even through bad times, we will never end up with, even after we die. "tell that the promised have been failed" means, we get our hopes up for going to a better place because we do the right thing, but we end up just a dead person with nothing. "behold your fellow man through centuries of control,
    Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god" could be saying that us as humans worship a god who we either have a poor perception of, or doesnt even exist. Or maybe it means we look toward to wrong things for leadership like the president and gov't. This song sounds great, but it's a very sad song about dead people telling us to wake up and smell the coffee

    Matt is forewarning us of a mass killing... & it's no coincidence he was born in japan... Where nuclear bombs killed plenty. Everyone needs to read,understand, & do there part to never let that happen again... I know i'm gonna do my part... Thx to trivium & all musicians & artists of the universe:). It's not a coincidence either that our presidents name rhymes with osama.wake up & smell the caffeine ppl.

    An awakening of the people who listen to this music and the message the song portrays is one that everyone should be concerned about. Humanities gone never to be returned. Its all down hill from here, unless humanity as a whole can make changes. This universal war of evil and good is our reality. Evil triumphs now but hope will restore balance. Hence the name, hence the name...
