"Mechanize" track-by-track guide by Burton C. Bell:
Bell: "The title track describes our world as the soulless program that it is.
Every part serves a purpose. There is no such concept as individuality within the
machine. We have carved our place inside the machine. We have grown banal
within our apathy. We have become mechanized."
02. Industrial Discipline
Bell: "The term was taken from the book 'The Third Wave'. It explains the path in which the industrial complex, and it's construct, initiated the
path of conformity. Everyone worked for the benefit of the machine, not for themselves. The discipline begins in mass education, determining time and
placement, superiors and subordinates, rank and file. Humanity has been disciplined to do the work for the machine, therefore becoming the
02. Fear Campaign
Bell: "It was not necessary to camouflage the insanity of the world of today within a science fiction setting. The world today has become the world
that writers predicted long ago. The controlling authorities are constantly, and successfully, utilizing the fear tactic to control the masses,
through misinformation and distraction. Fear is bondage. Fear is slavery. Fear is Hell. Fear is control."
Bell: "Change is an inevitable course in nature and humanity. This world has seen much change as of late, and it is true globally, nationally, and
personally. This is a true story of a personal struggle against a controlling and ineffectual organization. There is always a choice, and the choice
is never easy."
Bell: "Christianity has become a parody of itself. Through the ages, exploitation of myths, words, and the use of the fear tactic, have ruled the
masses. We have seen so much death and destruction in the name of a man made god that it means nothing. What is faith, but the belief in an archaic
superstition; an overwhelming fear to face reality of the world today. Invoking the name of Christ has become a common practice The original concept
does not apply. This is control through conformity and a false sense of morality."
Bell: "One molecule of oxygen can alter the course of the world. It can start the deterioration slowly through rust, or it can quickly incinerate
it's path. Either way, change is going to happen. This is about the trial by fire."
07. Controlled Demolition
Bell: "So many questions, so many lies, so perfect a destruction. All one has to do is consider the theories. Why is it so difficult to believe that
our elected officials are above destructive corruption? History has proved that absolute control through violence and deception is a common theme.
Consider the alternative thought, and you may see there is truth behind the False Flag."
08. Designing The Enemy
Bell: "Everything that occurs is a direct consequence of our own actions, creations, and manifestations. The machine that creates will ultimately be
our demise. It is coming, the future is here."
09. Metallic Division
Bell: "The rhythm of mechanical death..."
10. Final Exit
Bell: "Based on the organization of the same name. A group of individuals with enough compassion to assist those who are interested in
'self-deliverance' from their intolerable pain. Is it compassion that drives the ability to help one commit suicide? This is a statement about the
world in which we live, when the only cure for cancer, AIDS, MS ( and any other debilitating disease ) is death. Where is compassion to to assist our
fellow human being in their time of unbearable pain, to keep them alive without hope of survival? Where is the compassion to find a cure, or to
eliminate the diseases entirely? There is no profit in the cure... only pain and suffering."
