Linchpin
Fear Factory Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Can't take me apart...
Can't take me apart...

See the light a new day has arrived for us
Genesis of our evolution
A linchpin holds within a means to and end
Can't you see that we are one?
[Repeat: x3]
Can't take me apart

No you can't

We see no end to the dream

[Chorus]
We will never see the end
We will never be the ned
All of my life I felt discarded
Never feeling a part of it

No you can't

Without me you will fade, you will not remain
We are one and though the same future machine
A linchpin holds within a mean to an end
Can't you see that we are one?

[Repeat: x3]
Can't take me apart

No you can't

We see no end to the dream

[Chorus]

No you...
No you can't take... [Repeat: x5]

No you can't take me apart

[Chorus]

We will never see the end
We will never be the end
All my life I felt discarded
Never feeling a part of it

[Repeat: x5]
You can't change me





You can't change me now

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Fear Factory's "Linchpin" reflect the theme of unity and strength in numbers. The song talks about the evolution of humanity in which an individual alone is weak but when united as one, we become stronger and unstoppable. The chorus emphasizes that this oneness will never end, and time nor circumstance can take them apart. The song tells us that a linchpin, which serves as the center of a movement or organization, is crucial to our unity, and without it, we will not remain. It emphasizes that they are all one and that they will never be changed or broken.


The song implies the importance of free will and the idea that we must take charge of our lives. We must not allow society or people to dictate our choices or to break us down. The repeated phrase in the song, "Can't take me apart," is about a personal refusal to be controlled or dismantled. The lyrics expressed the idea that they will not allow anyone to take away what they have built and accomplished. They will continue to move forward as one.
