This is the song, see the lyrics on google, too.
My opinion is that Beck’s new song is an irony to our DAZZLING society, a critical attitude being afterall one of the main roles of a true artist. The message is clear: elephant ‘s in the room, boom boom… but we’re too busy to see it, well cause we’ve got a whole other set of preoccupations to make us BIGGER AND BETTER. Don’t get me wrong, nothing bad with self-development, if it comes from interior to exterior, if it’s not for others, if it’s not just to keep up with the Joneses and the Kardashians.
“Now we’ re pissin’ in the wind cause it’s so pine fresh”, ha ha ha, oh Beck, you are funny.
And another thing I particularly love is the introduction of the Wild West sounds and images into this song and video, I am a fan of Westerns, have just seen “The magnificent seven” yesterday, but that’s another story. Anyways this cool, urban cowboy just blows my mind and for me, he’s a worthy follower of David Bowie. There is hope!
Listen to him, dance to him and drink responsibly.
