I'm giving my honest opinion here.

The beginning turned me off a bit, but also made me to believe it may turn into something epic.
It then turned out ok in the end. I liked the rap, beats and what not. But a song as a whole, I personally wasn't too happy. The song was good, but it's just not something that I'll listen to that often. It's a great song to have on the album, but I personally hope the rest of the songs aren't like that. It's just not a "listen to all the time" song.

Here's my approach to the lyrics....
Speech by Mario Savio:
"Theres a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part. You cant even passively take part. And youve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the aparatus and youve got to make it stop!"

To Save Face, How Low can can you go?
Talk alot of game, but yet you dont know
Static on the way, make us all say, Woah!
The people up top push the people down low
Get down, and obey every word,
Steady get in line if you havent yet heard
Wanna take what I got, dont be absurd!
Dont fight the power, nobody gets hurt
If you havent heard yet, then Im lettin you know
There aint shit we dont run when the guns unload
And no-one make a move, less my people say so
Got everything out of control, now everybody go!

Steel and bone, final blow
We the animals take control
Hear us now, clear and true
Wretches and Kings, we come for you!

So keep pace, how slow can you go?
Talk alot of shit and yet you dont know
Fire on the way, make you all say Woah!
The people up top and the people down low
Get down, and Im runnin it like that
The fun of the attack is exactly where Im at
Somewhere between the kick and the hi-hat
The pen and the contract, the pitch and the contact
So get with the combat, Im lettin 'em know
There aint shit you can say to make me backdown, NO!
So, push the button, let the whole thing go,
Spinning the whole thing out of control now everybody Go

Steel and bone, final blow
We the animals take control
Hear us now, clear and true
Wretches and Kings, we come for you!

Steel and bone, fire blow
Filthy Animals, beat them low
Skin and bone, black and blue
None of the sun shall beat unto you! (Sketch on this line lol)

From the front to the back and the side to side,
If you feel what I feel put 'em up real high!

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!

"...when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part. You cant even passively take part. And youve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the aparatus and youve got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people that run it, to the people that own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!!"

End with epic guitar, bass, beat, electro noise and Joe Hahn scratch attack....
