Chemical Youth

Queensrÿche guitarist Chris DeGarmo told RIP magazine in October 1991: "This was about 20th-century youth, really; about living in the atomic age. 'Chemical Youth' was also a play on the technological/ecological aspect of the day we were living in at the time. It was a song about feeling rebellious. I don't know if there was really a general theme to it. It was more like a hodgepodge of all these little sentences that made up a modern-day picture: 'The leftist cry as the right subsides... hear me, the media mouth is open wide... success is our hunger, we need to feed.' Classic Geoff Tate." (thanks, DeeTheWriter - Saint Petersburg, Russia Federation)
Speaking to Circus, Degarmo described the concept behind Rage to Order: "If there's an overall theme for Rage for Order it may be technological indoctrination vs. human emotional response."
