lyrics

SO CONTAGIOUS MISINTERPRETATION - MASS IRRATIONAL
SUBJECT MATTER, SHATTERED, TATTERED
EMPTY SLOGANS FOR THE HERD
DESIGNATED MEANING - NO OBJECTIVITY
DISTRACTION TO PROVOKE REACTION
UBIQUITOUS AD HOMINEM - NOT AGAIN!

LINGUISTIC TREACHERY
SEMANTIC VIOLENCE!
WHAT THE MEANING REALLY MEANS?

WORD IS NOT THE THING ITSELF
DESCRIPTION IS NOT THE DESCRIBED
VERBAL GHOSTS SPINNING ROUND AND ROUND
INSIDE MY HEAD
IS IT POSSIBLE TO EVER FULLY COMPREHEND?
WHAT THEY CONTAIN?
THE TYRANNY OF WORDS RAGING MY HEAD

INDOCTRINATED TO RECEIVE
PERSUASION THRU EMOTIONAL APPEAL
BROKEN FRAME OF REFERENCE
DUE TO PRE-EXISTING PARADIGM
HOLLOW TO THE CORE
NON QUANTIFIABLE
TOO NARROW IN ITS CONSIDERATION
TO BE DEEMED AS VIABLE - RELIABLE!

LINGUISTIC TREACHERY
CONTEXT DEPENDENT!
THE MEANING OF MEANING?

THE TYRANNY OF..
TYRANNY OF WORDS RAGING MY..
THE TYRANNY OF..
THE TYRANNY OF WORDS RAGING MY..HEAD!

THE TYRANNY OF WORDS
OBSERVER IS THE OBSERVED
