Hello jayswami. Sorry I completely missed your request for its interpretation. I would be more than happy to explain it.Originally Posted by jayswami
In the song 1,000 Eyes, Chuck refers to an imaginary future where the privacy of every single human being on earth is invaded by constant surveillance. Thus the reference to "privacy and intimacy will be a memory".
Furthermore he refers to the fact that due to this relentless surveillance, humanity becomes aware of its being monitored at a concious level and therefore do not do anything that they would not want recorded. This is referred to in the chorus line "Living in the pupil of 1,000 eyes". By this he believes humanity's right of freedom is curtailed by imposing upon the free will of the populace.
The focal point of the song is probably the question "Was it overlooked in front of all our faces?" by which he asks if we would purposely want the survelliance as a means of self-control and it was deliberately being overlooked by the majority of mankind. This is further supported by the line "a worldwide, foolproof cage".
The song ends on a pretty self-explained note "We are enslaved now" but is further emphasised by the fact that it is screamed with roaring double-kick drums giving the outro. Must be heard to be appreciated.
Chuck was definitely a fantastic musician. There's reason behind why I call him the greatest musician of our time.
