Must be a great satisfaction to sit back and watch people discuss what the meanings to your songs are, with such intent to solve each song too! im not in a humourous mood today, just quite insightful =) so this is what sober is like.. woahh..

Edit: Remember the sentence in the CD case of DXM 2nd?

You mean the one that's the same as the one in the 1st print?
Unfortunately, I don't have the 1st print...

by the way... is hate the thing that's beneath the surface? ;)
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

Then there would be two songs about the same thing.

I don't think ghost and hate are the same thing.

Fury IS about a storm, comparing it to a mighty beast in the sky, hunting, doing stuff, yada yada yada... just read the lyrics (aforementioned link, or http://www.machinaesupremacy.com/lyrix/fury.txt ) and work it out for yourself, it seems obvious. It's sorta a metaphor, really...

Its not about a storm.

It's not?

It's about a storm, yes. Or more epically about the power of mother nature, as demonstrated by a storm. :)

I sense Reanimator is about ignorance; people who won't act, who just follow the masses and not see the problem. It might be political and against nationalism/trusting one's leader, or it might be against the general ignorance in our society.

I don't think I can get much more specific than that without over-analyzing, and it's also highly possible I've completely misinterpreted it already.

Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.

Rogue World Asylum is a social commentary on how our world is devolving.  "die mauer" is german for the wall... i see a lot of references to the Berlin Wall.  i think that its an extended metaphor for how we have been blinded by something (government?  media?  both?), and how this social and mental berlin wall is constraining us, but if we try hard enough, we can knock down the wall ("our future in debris"... torn down walls are considered debris).  the "She" in question is the world, i think, how its been blinded, as i said earlier, and how currently we are so convoluted that we "breathe death", in how we are totally oblivious, and how we are destroying the world and oruselves.

just my .02 on that song

Edit: Not going to go as in-depth on this one, but I Know The Reaper seems to NOT be about the act of fearing death, but rather about fearing the idea of being forgotten, or fear of the afterlife.

the fear of being forgotten pretty much = the fear of death me thinks.....

and the "she" talked about in rogue world asylum is probably the little word "freedom". it also talks about how it's damaged due to fear ,"as we search for what to follow in the >>night<<"

"She breathes death inside
as we keep trying to nurture her with lies
Now scorched her eyes are blind
Though given time she can recover if we try"

why "freedom", and not "the World" ?. the eyes are pretty much the word which give this metaphor more sense, and a theoretical thing like freedom you can nurture far easier with lies than "the world".... ;P
and well, "walls" are used as a symbol of the destruction of freedom, thats quite obvious, aight?
