Synthesized surface conceals the interior
America, land of opportunity, mirages and camoflauges

from Black Star – Thieves in the Night Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Synthesized surfaces conceal the interior”: We engage in consumerism to cover up who we really are and how we feel, wrapping everything in outward conformity so we feel like we fit in.

“America, land of opportunity, mirages and camouflages”:
The American Dream, the consumerist ideal, and other fabrications that the elite sell to the people are meant to conceal the true, deeply caste-bound nature of our society
