Lyrics

A glaring neon glow illuminates this street Breathe in these human vapors, sweat and heavy heat Hi-tech cathedrals rise and fall in great ravines Colossal steeples to the gods in the machines

Broken body built anew Spirit lingers, torn in two Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery Political duplicity Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin Search my electric soul for the hidden man within

Your secret science conquers nature's cruel laws But inside your wires lie a million mortal flaws Electric sleep I dream inside my honeycomb I stay alive inside my hive of skin and chrome

Broken body built anew Spirit lingers, torn in two Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery Political duplicity Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin Search my electric soul for the hidden man within Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin

(Broken body built anew) Search my electric soul for the hidden man within Spirit lingers torn in two...)


Meaning

Inspired by Deus Ex:Human Revolution

"For the couple of people asking, this song is about Augmentations becoming the next 'great commodity'. In the past these have been things such as oil, coal & slavery - all of which have also been referred to as 'black gold'. This also ties into the game & video's colour scheme as well as Adam's struggle with accepting that he is becoming less of a human and more of a commodity the more he augments himself :)" - Gavin Dunne on his Youtube page.
