about

This song is about observing and watching humans from a distance and
how the try and change to better themselves, only to fall short
You can change the way you look, act, own, or walk but in the end you are a predefined code and have to live within the limits life has given you.
The meaning behind #808080 is just simple HTML code for the color grey. You could fix yourself to be the brightest colors but in the end your set color code is grey and will always be.

lyrics

(Verse)
I watch as they move
they blur like a flame
leaving a trail
painted in gray
an ominous tone
the zero will never change

As speculation
I attest to the fad
our human conditions
becoming our masks
hopelessly waiting for
a purpose to append

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray

(Verse)
I watch from a distance
a separate plain
cold in perception
yet I'm warm in this state
as they grow
to better the machine

Building it up
the flesh and bone
a new messiah
to rewrite the code
when the creature
was strong enough to speak
he said

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray

(Bridge)
Next in line
step aside
you will find
Your number is #808080

Next in line
step aside
you will find
your number is #808080

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray
