Skinny Puppy – Use Less lyrics

Are we alone?

Mission complete

To the unknown

This is a story
This is so sorry

[Hard as a stone]
Sunk in to deep

Run out of air

Lung full of heavy
It's feeling heavy

Room for one
Fossil to break

Labor of hate
Who are we fooling?

What are we doing?

[In it on time]

[Proof in the meat]

Time to consume

Doesn't concern me

Under a flag free

Are we all completely useless?

Are we? Are we?

End is unknown

Sick and alone

This is a dream

Meant as a nice thing

Meant as a nice thing

So pause at the end
Cause the effect

Shorten the pain
Time for reflection

On to regret them

Are we all completely useless?

Are we? Are we?

Music Facts about Skinny Puppy and "Use Less" song

Use Less meanings

  • u
    To me this song is all about how we are headed towards destruction in Western society. Societal, environmental destruction is all around us. "Are we alone? Mission complete to the unknown" is reference to the hurtle towards eventual ruination of western society. Technology can't bail us out forever. "Time to consume" is reference to the inordinate amount of consumption in the west. I would like to see if anyone interprets the lyrics in a completely different manner.
