I'm still trying to figure out theory but I've been trying to figure out what it's known as when you take a scale for example (C major) and focus on a different tonic like (D) but don't change any notes of the scale. Now I was wondering if this has to do anything with modes or is this just a complete misconception on my part.

i don't really understand your question but you can play the notes of a D scale within a C scale, you'd just be omitting the notes that aren't in both, but that makes little sense

Yeah you're talking about modes. D dorian mode has the same notes as C major, but the tonal centre is D.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums

That's exactly what a mode is.

However, before learning about modes, please make sure you understand the basics, intervals and the major scale, via my sig.

My attention was drawn more to your sig than your question m8. Lol
