Cut Copy, Oh mercy, Clue to Kalo and the list goes on. The Aussie’s have been pumping out great artist and bands like America Samoa produces NFL players – a lot.
I was thinking of the best way to explain this songs meaning and the only that came to mind was a line from Hypnotize that perfectly captures the songs essense.
Gon’ blast squeeze first ask questions last, that’s how most of these so called gangsta’s pass.” (Notorious B.I.G.. Hypnotize)
The older we get the more we think, rationalize and calculate everything before we act which usually leads to no action at all. The easiest way to lose is to be caught thinking while the world passes you by – “that’s how most of these so called gangsta’s pass.” Given that the nature of the world is endless possibilities you can imagine how lame it can be to get old and get trapped in this mentality. So while most people would call this a love song, I think it has a great meaning to do with capturing the innocence of youth, following your gut and constantly moving forward, enjoy.
Won’t stop till it’s over, won’t stop to surrender…”
