Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Combichrist’s song “Without Emotions” offer a bleak view of life without any kind of emotion – love, hate or anything in between. Breath itself is compared to a clock – simply ticking away, with no purpose or meaning. The repetition of the lyrics “Without Emotions, Without Feelings, Without Love, Without Hate” further emphasize the bleakness of this existence, with no highs or lows, only the endless ticking away of time.


This song can be interpreted in a number of ways – as a commentary on depression or mental illness that leaves one feeling numb, or as a warning about the dangers of becoming too detached or apathetic to the world around us. Whatever the interpretation, the song is unrelenting in its bleakness and offers little hope for any kind of emotional resolution.
