Similar to grindcore like Napalm Death, this song has a stethoscope on the visceral nexus between extreme Conservatism and extreme Liberalism.  That is, an intense perception of the dystopian segments of modern society, prior to the subsequent political interpretation of it*.  Wielding cutting clarity and a more gratifyingly emotional (liberal) reaction than metal, it perhaps puts itself in the shoes of a modern fallen angel Lucifer: the sensitive suburbanite kid who loses it all and lands mercilessly in the maw of the technological prole wasteland.  The graffiti-style band logo might give off a foul nu-metal odor, but I find it heightens the
atmosphere of modern hell.

*This is not to say Dystopia isn't a liberal band, just that they at least have their fingers on the pulse

Now as I listen in a more stable mood, it seems more neurotic and warped than anything :(...like its more in the shoes of a crazy bum than an ultimately sane suburbanite kid in a bad spot. Still, it warrants some attention as a high watermark for the pain, disgrace, alienation, and unadulterated torment that is capable of being experienced in this world, whether the experience is gratuitous and avoidable or not.

Dystopia was one of the few crust/punk bands who's music matched the words. The aesthetics of human=garbage are a high mark of that musical tradition.
