2112 isn't really discussing specific political idealogies - a set of ideas to be used as tools to control people and make them do what you think they should - which is what both "right" and "left" are...

....which is exactly what I said. To clarify, "right" and "left" are no longer useful terms in describing political ideologies.

What total, total nonsense.
Just stop it already.

LOL.

Well, lyrically the song is totally different from where the idea came from ... but that's for another thread.

Now, what's Bytor and the Snow Dog about?

I was always thought it was about this nice girl Tor who swings both ways and her exciting adventures with her trusty pet huskey...

Never bothered reading the lyric sheet though... :lol:

(My interpretation was thrown into some doubt when I watched a DVD a while back of them performing sometime around Exit, and there were projection images that didn't seem to fit my story - the musicianship was STUNNING though, I must get that DVD :D)

I think we should do something easier like "Name of the game" or "Take a chance on me"

I'm a big fan of quite a lot of Japanese bands (admittedly MCM aren't one of them) and NONE of them ever make any sense. Bar maybe Gallhammer, but their songs basically go:

DEEEPRESSSIIIIOOOOOOOONNNNNN GGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

And just for completion it would seem both me and Denim are right if wiki is to be believed

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2112_(song)

an excert

Quote
Part seven, "The Grand Finale", is a grand instrumental concluding with the spoken words "Attention, all planets of the Solar Federation: We have assumed control". Some fans interpret the Grand Finale as the victorious return of the Elder Race, while others interpret it as the establishment of absolute power by the Priests who have finally destroyed the last dissident to their order.

My personal interpretation of Bytor and the Snow Dog is that it is about the male British musicians' angst driven need for Midol.
