CHVRCHΞS Song Meanings and Interpretations
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?
These folks have their popularity rising rapidly and I'm happy, they seem to present a humble and focused on writting good tunes attitude; plus they're Scottish. Always a plus. I was confused with the "V" thing at first though, I thought they were in the Witch House genre. Settle for a artist comment instead of a song comment for a change.
I've witnessed that several times throughout the journey of life, one party going like "I'm going to clean out, to straighten up", having all sorts of trouble; being addiction, bad behaviours or prejudice. And they all finished their speech with "are you gonna be there?"
