Rocket Dragon - My Interpretation
« on: July 04, 2012, 01:51:21 am »
Had a fluke of inspiration and came up with this:

I thought it was about humanity killing themsefves and the Demon is also the atomic bomb. Mostly I thought of it as a memento for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Yeah, that seems like another good way to see it. I also heard that it is about gunship or drone operators which also makes an awful lot of sense.
I'm probably too biased by my love for alien invasions to look at it objectively  :P

I think it has been confirmed that it was originally inspired by the Wikileaks video "Collateral Murder"  :) But yeah, cool stuff.
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica
:o brown chicken brown cow :o

Yeah. It's about a gunship pilot killing people. His faith in God gives him an ease of mind, so he can continue killing and feel righteous about it. Very much inspired by the Wikileaks leaked "Collateral murder" video. "The all seeing eye" is the high-tech helicopter which can't be spotted until it's too late. I understood it instantly after I read the lyrics (considering the video is also sampled in the title track of the album). I think this has also been confirmed to be the meaning of the song by Gaz/Robert, if I'm not mistaken.

Anyway it's quite interesting to read interpretations by different people.
