Who doesn’t love themselves some aggressive female vocals over an array of danceable 80′s electro pop sounds compiled together these days? I know I do. It makes me want to dance and wish I were back in high school all over again, this time as part of that group of goth kids that never seemed to care what anyone else thought as long as they had their music, cigarettes, and their sexual revolutions to encompass their days.
Diving into the lyrics of this tune, I realize that Sarah sees her world as somewhat of a Pleasantville in nature. She mentions raindrops hitting the ground in black and white, and “waking up to the sound of nothing, to insanity”, as she puts it. That “nothing” and “insanity” for me symbolize the mundane reality that some of you out there live, as well as the redundant nature of it all. As Albert Einstein so eloquently put it, doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results is insanity, no? As she reaches out for the red pill, or rather the knife to cut a hole with a la Alice in Wonderland style, she finds an escape and decides to step out into the night through it. It’s a night that’s set in a magical desert-forrest which resembles Burning Man and Zion [The Matrix] wrapped into one. Her images of sensual dancing are reminiscent of the rave Zion Party scene in The Matrix Reloaded alongside bonfires, magical kisses, and of course ― wolves. Lost in desire myself, the song provides a brief escape into a world that would be equally as interesting to watch on camera as it is to listen to.
