First of all, thank you to everyone that shared their feelings for our last song and video, Brother. We make music ‘cause we love making music so we have to make it, but its really rewarding to know it moves you too. We feel your comments. That song was more personal than anything we’ve ever written, and it turns out a lot of you can relate.
This month's song is Blood in Paris, and it's a big heap of self-criticism, especially of my liberal ideology
Fail all our doves
Fail our halos
Punch down the racist
Adorn ourselves in slave clothes
Thats my liberal bullshit in short-- I'm quick to judge some redneck as a racist for his Facebook post while I'm wearing clothes made by child wage-slaves in Bangladesh.
Cognitive dissonance is a good phrase in psychology, a musical one: The inner-conflict of ideas, ideas that aren't harmonious with each other. There's a lot of dissonance going around these days, its a cacophony out there. I'm trying to bring more harmony to it by being more harmonious in my own ideas, and by making music.
