I can't explain the "41 reasons" to you, so it would be nice of somebody else explained it to both of us. But "Diallo" is probably referring to a young black man who was shot and killed by police in New York while entering his house. Undercover cops had stopped him for no apparent reason and as he was reaching into his pocket to pull out his keys they shot and killed him assuming he was reaching for a weapon. Keep in mind these were undercover cops therefore it can be assumed Diallo had no idea what they were trying to do.

They're one in the same, I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself.

Cool insight 'Machine Dissectional' - Cheers for that!!! So I guess by Zack saying no one followed Dialo to the grave. Would Zack be reffering to the fact that the undercover policemen followed him to his home. But no one ever followed him to his grave????

Yeah I'd be keen to find out what 41 reasons is in reference to as well.

I honestly like how Zacks lyrics are very complex and often fragments of a much larger puzzle. He writes great thought provoking work in such a creative and very original style. Love it!
