about

Are we individuals?
And are we individuals -individuals in the sense of being unique? Are we? Or are we merely the result of our conditioning, of innumerable influences, of centuries of tradition? You may like to separate yourself as being of the West, and set yourself still further apart as being German. But are you an individual in the sense of being completely uncorrupted, uninfluenced? Only in that state are you free -not otherwise. Which does not mean anarchy or selfishly individual existence-on the contrary.
But now you are not individuals; you are anything but that. You are German, English, French; you are Catholics, Protestants, communists, something or other. You are stamped, shaped, held within the framework in which you have been brought up, or which you have subsequently chosen. So your life is predetermined. And every Catholic, every churchgoer, every person who belongs to any religious organization -his life is predetermined, fixed; therefore, he is never free. He may talk about freedom, he may talk about love and peace, but he cannot have love and peace, nor can he be free because for him those are mere words.

lyrics

LYRICS:
evolution,, on a planet , i cant call mine.
wasting time,, in a complex universe.
we walk in time,, piece by piece
we take what we define,, whats yours and whats mine.
complexity,, living in society.
walking alone,, through the sights we see.
we are individuals with our beliefs.
hypnotized,, from our degree.
but one day ill fly,, ill spread my wings.
ill show the whole world,, what im meant to be.
im a human,, im a goddamn living thing.
but im not really human,, if im just existing.
wasting my time,, in a complex universe
walking in time, piece by piece.
barely alive, on a planet.. i cant even call mine.
