The Cave

from by Lifespent



The track's name is a reference to Plato's Cave. To keep it short, this track is about how the mass media and the actual system are built to make us always level down socially and politically, to make us think that we live in the best world there is. While they are enforcing us this vision, the powers that be take advantage of our apathy to pursue their own interests that do not concern and help most of the population.


Built to destroy the mind • Carefully engineered to blind • A tool to serve the higher • Fulfilling their desire • Power, control, violence, deception, breeds • hate, ignorance, jealousy and fear • Dehumanized and raised to never fall • The perfect citizen stands tall • I wonder if we’ll ever see the fire • Will we ever aim for something higher?
