If this sounds poncey, listen to the lyrics – “in this harsh reality, mass confusion” – and watch the montage; a man beating an octopus against a concrete floor, an Orthodox priest breathing deeply, a young girl smoking, a man swinging incense, a power station, a man writhing in pain covering his ears. And drugs, lots of people taking drugs.
