    Its about illuminati, obviously. He's not brainwashed anymore, he's awake. He understands that the world is controlled by illuminati / a corrupt goverment. "We are all illuminated", he refers that we all are brainwashed by illuminati.

    "We are all illuminated,
    Lights are shining on our faces, blinding"
    Again, he sings about how illuminati are blinding / brainwashing us. IMO: Its time to wake up and fight back!

    "Suddenly my eyes are open,
    Everything comes into focus, __oh__,
    We are all illuminated,"

    __oh__ - he sees how bad the world is, he understands. He's now awake, his not brainwashed anymore. He can see.

    He sings about this, trying to tell everybody whats going on in our world.

    It reminded me of Foer's "everything is illuminated", ironically

    I think this song is kinda decadent. It means, he is singing about how you find light in immorality or stuff like that, for example when he says dnt be afraid ov 2morrow,
    jst take my i'll make it feel so much bter 2nite. It is about not thinking twice, it tells you to enjoy the moment your way, get illuminated and then blinded by the light itself.

    He's talking about a man with horrible smelling gas.

    this song is about drugs. this stuff about the illuminati is false. he's talking about being on ecstasy.

    or he's with the illuminati being that they control all forms of media and pop culture. He's referring to his seeing the "light" he's illuminated, that would mean that he's been shown the way, seen their version, knowing their truth. Why would he be "illuminated" and going against them. He's probably referring to everyone else blinded who's not with them
