"In a World Completely Possessed By the Human Mind" as written by and Robert Baker Gordon Downie....
Just give me the news
It can all be lies
Exciting over fair or the right thing at the right time
Everything is clear
Just how you described
The way it appears, a world possessed by the human mind

Then I think I smiled
Then I think you said, "it's fine"
And quietly I dressed, in a world completely possessed by the human mind

We're in awe of no one
We've none of their fear
Fighting's goin' nowhere and we stay right here
Where's everything is quiet
A little super dangerous
In the shadow of the law and with colours of justice

Then I hope I smiled
Then I'm sure you said, "it's fine"
They got no interest in a world completely possessed by the human mind

Everything is quiet
A little super dangerous
Quiet enough to hear god rustlin' around in the bushes
Oh, but it was you
Girl, I was so afraid
You said, "you shoulda seen the look on yer face"

Then I hope I laughed
Then I hope I said, "it's fine"
And quietly undressed in a world completely possessed by the human mind

Oh it was you
Girl, I was so afraid
You said, "you shoulda seen the look on yer face"

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about the brainwashing we all endure everyday from our shady politicians and corrupt media and it is probably written from the subconscious level of a trauma based mind control victim.

    General CommentKnowing what we know now, I can't hear this song as being about anything other than Gord getting news from his doctor + dealing with the diagnosis with his wife by his side.

    My InterpretationI believe the song was written before Gord's cancer diagnosis, but has to do with his wife's breast cancer diagnosis. Probably relating to what he was feeling at the time, and how he went through his own set of emotions and fears, but just wanted to be there with his wife.
