    i think it's about a man who was worshipped as a god believing he was one and as he dies he realizes the eternal life he thought he had was an illusion.

    It's about conforming to being "enslaved" by power through politics, greed, technology (presently social media, needing the latest phone / tv etc) -- and the singer asking himself WHY he "has to" be a "power slave" (ie is he expected to be like everybody else and be unable to live without protests / movements, technology updates, etc -- or if he can be a free-thinker and live how he wants to without being subjected to criticism or ridicule by the "followers"?)
