    That's a nice way to look the lyrics. That's a known technology effect called socialization of de-socialization, but i think the first one, more similar to prometeheus, fits better.

    Couldn't agree more

    +1. I don't get it, I also thought it was a joke at first. If you guys have the time and patience, enlight us please.

    All the lyrics are credited Romeo/Allen, except for "Electric Messiah", "Light Up the Night" and "Lords of Chaos" which are just Allen´s.

    Music for all, and for "all" I mean the twelve tracks, is just Romeo´s. That was a little bit disappointing. :( I could say why, but don´t want to turn this thread in another "Bitching Thread" :rolleyes:.

    FYI and FWIW, the full and official title of the original novel by Mary Shelly, if you include its subtitle, is actually "Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus".

    Bastards of the machine is like how people perceive that they have choice. The verses are talking about how you have a choice to be good or evil, to do right or wrong, but actually it doesn't matter because your life doesn't matter, because you are a bastard of the machine. You're just a human being who is no one important and your choices in life make almost no impact whatsoever.

    I feel like I would enjoy the album so much more if I spent a few hours mapping out a story for it.
