Through Explanation you See the Lyrics in a New Light
Nothing But Thieves - Unperson
We lose all control of our senses, so slowly Give them up until we're defenseless, so surely
This is not what you think it is This is not what you, this is not what you This is not what you think it is It's worse
Now my computer gets sad without me, it's scary It's turnin' off everything I believe in 'Cause it knows it's easy
'Cause I'm another unperson You created this mess You are the grand designer Revel in our unrest
And we're getting sick of your doublethink We see you all and now the walls are cavin' in And maybe I'm flawed, but I do exist My thoughts are mine, I didn't sign up for this
Now my spirit can barely function, it's ugly No longer fit for public consumption Well, I guess that's somethin'
'Cause I'm another unperson You created this mess
I'm just another clone of a clone I'm out here searchin' for some meanin' I'm all out of love, I forget what it feels like (yeah) And we all take orders comin' from above us And they won't leave me alone I'm just another clone of a clone of a clone
Nothing But Thieves draws a dark picture of what can happen when mankind does not know how to deal with technical innovations in a responsible manner: the individual with all his advantages and flaws is replaced by the clone who has no feelings and does not use its mind independently. Now the computer decides what you feel, believe or think. The individual is not even called a person. The narrator in the song tries to fight against all this: "My thoughts are mine, I didn't sign up for this".
However, the narrator cannot free himself from this situation because he knows that he will not be given any rest as long as he is defending himself against the loss of his human qualities. The song is to be understood as a warning to everyone not to permit that we will live in such a world.
