So, I was working in the garage tonight, building my new workbench. Devin and a friend were skateboarding, and heard a song on the radio playing in the garage. “Dad… I love this song… check it out…
So, I start listening, and talks about riding on the bike with no handlebars. I can see why Devin likes it. Go ahead and check it out, then keep reading…
Intrigued, I get on the internet to find out who sang it, and a little more about it, and found the video. It’s quite fascinating, and can be taken many different ways.
I think it’s about how corporate america has really gone overboard, overtaking just about everything from the power of the atom, to the power of the voice…. until one-day, things have gone so far, you no longer have control, and things start going their own way.
One guy chooses the dove, or the peaceful direction. The other guy chooses corporate america.
I found it incredibly sad and troubling, that the guy who chose the dove actually dies at the end, by the hand of his friend (indirectly, of course). And the artwork, especially the gunshots and bullet wounds, were impressively profound!
That’s my viewpoint… but can be taken many different ways. For example, my wife just thinks it’s just about the choices we make. Others thinks its about current politics.
