"Galaxy Brain" - A lockdown fairy tail


With all this extra time we were given in 2020, The Mechanist decided to set a plan in motion that would lead to a steady stream of musical content creation. This plan was to become completely self sufficient. With Pitch Black Audio already getting a reputation for quick turnaround and high production value, we thought why not take the plunge to committing to 100% self produced works.


Enter "Galaxy Brain", the first release of 2021. This track was recorded, mixed and mastered by Les and Sam (Pitch Black Audio) and the artwork and video was created by Sam Butterfield.


The lyrics of "Galaxy Brain" are a social commentary on the people who blindly follow conspiracies.


Lyrics

You are the flesh and bone of this plague

Spiralling thought engulfs all, directionless

Consumed by rumination

Paranoid mass eats away at the the logical


Entangled in mycelial decay

Leeched of sense, repurposed

Disseminate

Parasitic notions to overcome

Rewrite and usurp the susceptible flock


Deified


The cult of the dreaming eye


Wither to the rot

Salve your confusion, as acuity is lost

Contorting and constricting every host

The grand design to undermine and advance the decline


Your third hand opinions are packaged and sold

Predictable patterns, you do as you’re told

Lapping up all the shit that you’ve been drip fed

Seeking it out just to immerse yourself

Every tragedy breeds a thousand fantasies

Rotting all reason until all that’s left are fallacies


Critical thought declines

The credulous stand beguiled

By conspiracy, malice and lies

They’re slowly eating away at your mind


Fabricate dodge and evade

Never the same

Shift the blame Inconsistent

You can’t explain Insight feigned

Fabricate dodge and evade

Never the same

Shift the blame

Inconsistent

You can’t explain Insight feigned


You turned to me and said you saw the light

As I gaze at a broken man who burned out his eyes

Repeating your refrains as you rejoin the sightless choir

Treasured for that “open” mind until your use expires

Critical thought declines

The credulous stand beguiled

By conspiracy, malice and lies

They’re slowly eating away at your mind
