What I’m Listening To, part 3


The way these posts work is, I’m going to post the lyrics with my thoughts in between the lines like this.


Fear Factory – Expiration Date

You’re blind to what’s in front of you
What do you know about the truth


What do you know about the truth?  You really don’t know anything.  The only thing that I am certain of is that I know nothing.


Devalued as soon as we’re cast
We were never made to last


If we could be made to last, would you want to?


Just bodies made and fabricated
We’re fighting towards our life extension
We’re living for expiration

Under the surface we’re not machines
Under the surface we’re living dreams


Underneath it all, we’re sill humans even if we rarely treat each other as such.  We have dreams, wants, needs, fears, hopes, aspirations…we have all these things.  Under the surface we’re all pretty complex creatures.  We just don’t treat each other as well as we should.


Death lives just one breath away


We could die at any moment.


Somewhere my heart beats in silence
I made my way through the violence
Nobody lives forever


If you could live forever, would you want to?


“It’s a shame you won’t live. But then again, who does?”


Just let that line sink in for a bit.  Does anyone really live?  Or do we just go through the motions of our day to day lives until we die?


My endless will for resolution
Echoing since my creation
I’m living for my expiration


Closure.  It’s one of those things that we crave that we don’t always get when we want or need it.


Under the surface we’re not machines
Under the surface we’re living dreams
Death lives just one breath away
Somewhere my heart beats in silence
I made my way through the violence
Nobody lives forever
Under the surface we’re not machines
Under the surface we’re living dreams
Death lives just one breath away

“It’s a shame you won’t live.  But then again, who does?  All these memories will fade in time.  Like tears in rain.  Time to die.”
