I really want to just type out the lyrics of this song and have us all sit around for a conversation about it. Tackling hard subjects like narcissism and weapons of mass destruction, it’s clear that Pierce is willing to take on more than the conventional pop star fare.
It’s the age of INSANITY.
I find it extremely hard to believe that Pierce wrote and recorded this song BEFORE the pandemic, but I’m fairly certain she did. Incredible. The amount of prophetic insight here is spine-tingling, honestly. Musically, it’s a piece that will unsettle you deeply. It’s not meant to be a happy go lucky song, but the reflective lyrics about humanity’s inability to learn from our mistakes should absolutely hit everyone who hears it.
It’s “the beginning of the ending of the world.”
