An Infinite Delirium - Lyrics & Backstory

Updated: Sep 25, 2020

Verse 1


Set the stage

For a new story of power & glory

Turn a page

Scroll all day, forward and play

This web of lies is well disguised as news


Pre Chorus


Get your mind around what I have to say now

Take the bait, cut the debate now

Hear what I say, what I say, what I say

We’re going to do this my way, my way


Turn the news on, read my papers

Look at your phone, do you feel the danger

Hear what I say, what I say, what I say

We’re going to do this my way, my way


Chorus


Defy, my infinite wisdom

With your version or perversion of the truth

Feed of, my blind delirium

Replacing parts of me, with twisted parts of you



Verse 2


Burn away

Those who deny, my righteous point of view

Bow, obey

The few will see, they can be broken too

Reality is now what we make it to be


Pre Chorus


Get your mind around what I have to say now

Take the bait, cut the debate now

Hear what I say, what I say, what I say

We’re going to do this my way, my way


Turn the news on, read my papers

Look at your phone, do you feel the danger

Hear what I say, what I say, what I say

We’re going to do this my way, my way


Chorus


Defy, my infinite wisdom

With your version or perversion of the truth

Feed of, my blind delirium

Replacing parts of me, with twisted parts of you


Bridge


Chorus


Defy, my infinite wisdom

With your version or perversion of the truth

Feed of, my blind delirium

Replacing parts of me, with twisted parts of you


An Infinite Delirium - The Backstory


One of the phenomenons that is hard to ignore is the impact of propaganda, misinformation and sowing the seeds for ideas by those in power to manipulate the masses. It's been around a long time but never has it been as blatant and widespread and as effective as it is today. Look at the leadership of several countries today and there is a pattern. Observe the way narratives are created, the way they are targeted specifically at preconceived biases or existing weaknesses of people and how effectively mass media, social media is used to propagate these intentional narratives to solidify power and control.


As this pause created by the pandemic allowed everyone to take a step back and look at things from 'a wider perspective', this plague of deliberate misinformation, twisting of truth and propaganda is perhaps one of the toughest battles of our times. In recent times, I've come to see numerous people I know (or thought I knew) in different countries often echoing the ideology politicians in their countries are feeding through media without questioning or any critical thinking. These ideas are not formed through personal experience or real world experiences and interactions with other humans. They come from a crafted narrative purposefully designed to evoke a deep seeded emotional reaction or underlying bias and this playbook political tactic has created a state of delirium through media and communication channels. We're in times where truth is obscure. We're forming opinions and taking stands not based on what we experience first hand but what we're being fed through newspapers, tv and screens that we can not put down. In other terms, led into an infinite delirium.
