[Intro]
Dopamine
On dopamine

[Verse 1]
We have been overrun by our animal desire
Addicts of the immediate keep us obedient and unaware
Feeding this mutation, this Pavlovian despair

[Pre-Chorus]
We've become
Disillusioned
So we run
Towards anything glimmering

[Chorus]
Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around, find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique voice among the many in this choir
Tuning into each other, lift all higher

[Interlude]
Dopamine
On dopamine

[Verse 2]
Willingly been re-wired by clever agents within
Looping our reflections, our obsessions draw us in
Fix and fixation, no sentience beyond

[Pre-Chorus]
We've become disillusioned
So we dive like crows towards anything glittering

[Chorus]
Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around, find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique voice among the many in this choir
Tuning into each other, lift all higher

    My InterpretationLike all APC's work, this track certainly must have to do with how our society, not just the USA, are addicted to the technology and "silicon obsessions". It's become so bad that people are literally getting fined FINALLY for walking blindly across streets staring at their phones and causing accidents... it's not just the drivers texting, there are so many people out there.. just lost, and now dependent on technology 24/7 and being "connected"... it's not easy to disconnect, but if given the opportunity... it would help heal this world, society, and times we live in.

    My InterpretationPavlovian despair, what an apt description of social media. But I don't read it as a rejection of technology, but a more a need to find balance, to be able to put away gadgets and experience life in the moment, to find the "sentience beyond."

    General Commentits definitely about societal obsession to shinny electronic toys and needing to have the next best thing, and the dopamine kick it generates because of the excitement? especially the current generation.

    Song MeaningLook for the path of the Four Noble Thruths.

    "find a way in the silence" and you will find out that "you were never an island".
