it's all i have to said about the song, and i agree whit the last post i tink they were talking about the brainwhas on those times but i will have to read that novels to see what to they were refering to
I think the song is speaking out against television and how brainwashed/desensitized people have become because of it. Much like doublespeak and the Government did to the people in 1984. I have not the Philip K. Dick book however, so I cannot explain that one.
The 1984 reference obviously is in reference to 1984 by george orwell, and the electric sheep may be from "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K Dick. This book was made into the movie "Blade Runner" I can't seem to find any connection with the lyrics and that book though.

simply put, brandon boyd is a genius. all of incubu's songs not only have an awesome sound, but the actual lyrics are equally as impressive.
I love this song! |
I think this is one of Incubus' best songs, actually. The sound is just phenomenal and the lyrics are fantastic---it's pretty different from their usual beat. I hadn't even realized the reference to the novel "1984" until my brother brought it home and we talked about it. You'd look at the "electic sheep" lyrics in a completely different way if you've read it.
Good song sorta reminds me of... |
Catchy lyrics, smooth beat, yeah it's a good song. Is the mentioning of 1984 and electric sheep refering to two certain books? I don't really know or listen to Incubus but I'm gonna check out their other songs after this one.
