Feed The Machine Lyrics
Addressing those beneath from high above
Convincing his belief for what you love
Baiting every hook with filthy lies
Another charlatan to idolize
Is this suppression just in my mind? (just in my mind?)

It's anti big government. Great song.

Too be honest, it sounds anti-Trump/anti-Hillary/anti-corrupt leadership in general.

First off it's perfect for all you liberals blindly following corruption and attacking those who try to help. The hook describes all the globalist pushing their own agenda to further there cause not the people's. He asks himself if he's crazy and if this bs is all in his head because of how ludicrous the US has become. Then throws in the no more questions get back in line. It's the mentality of the left, if you ask questions they don't have answer and just try to demonize and destroy people with other beliefs (that's the "tolerant" left for you

The song is just anti authoritarian/totalitarian. It doesn’t attack either the left or the right. It’s intentionally vague so you can place your most hated politician (Trump, Clinton, Putin, whomever) in the role of the dictator.
There also may be some shots taken at collectivist thinking, given the constant repitition of the phrase “Get back in line” every time the protagonist (who seems to be a part of the “machine”) seems to have an individual thought of their own, and the line “Harvesting you to feed the machine” could be a metaphor for “Dying to help your cause”.

I feel like its about the holocaust.

It isn’t a certain person. It’s straight up just a anti-government song.

The song clearly is about following a person of high authority, and no one else has a say on it.
They always lie, as they say "Baiting every hook, with filthy lies." Well its another person to worship, even though we should worship God instead. They do not let you ask any questions. It is all about the one in charge, and not the public. Peace Out!
