I know this thread is old as tots, but I decided to just look for a thread on the matter instead of making one...

Anyway, I heard that Effigy is about extraterrestrials and gray alien controversies. No?

It's about the USA's anti-Vietnam citizens burning the White House lawn. Tons of political imagery in the lyrics.
