Thoughts on Songs with CHVRCHΞS
I think this song is a relationship one, as much as group one. What I mean by group is, I think it explores the authority like relationship building up inside hierarchical teams, and the almost sexual driven intensity that sometimes is observed under those circumstances.
Lately all songs I hear that have a mention on time, or on the perception of time even, they provide me with visiting some thoughts on the matter, like this is one which is kicking off with defining that the pace (of something) should increase. Faster, faster huh? What if time is but an illusion my dear?
