Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dismantling the clockwork that makes me the cynic
Pallet, wheel and click
The properties of my indifference
Reverse-engineering what makes it tick
Dissecting the fine-tuned mechanism
Rack and barrel, spring and pin
Its synchronous characteristics
To kill what makes it spin
Verse 2
Disassemble this machinery
Re-program these eyes, undo this design
Verse 3
Labelled and filed, each part indexed
Broken to pieces then thoroughly burned
Deconstruction of what I am
Buried to make sure he never returns
Taken apart, defused, blueprints turned to ashes
Eradicate the last remains, remnants of the insane
Verse 4
Disintegration, the destruction of me now imperative
To purge myself of this condition, complete this dissolution a necessity
Verse 5
Break this deceitful machine
Verse 6
A lie, what once I was, obsolete instrument
An outmoded contraption, a malfunctioning device
Verse 7
That callous self now extinguished, that malignant self now disused
That conceited invention to nothing now reduced
Verse 8
Complete disintegration, the destruction of me now imperative
To purge myself of this condition, complete this dissolution a necessity
Verse 9
Break this deceitful machine
