One of the first media things that actually made me really think

Hey, Now i'm not sure if this had already been discussed or if even its in the right place so please move if its wrong.

But I heard this song on the radio today and for some reason I just really liked it however it didn't really hit me what it was about until I watched the video.

Its called handlebars by Flobots and can be found here

Its just quite a obvious out there opinion of whats going on at the moment, I was quite surprised to see such a strong opinion of the world today, Its not quite directed at the NWO directly but more the government but The way I read it it seems to be expanding into a NWO. There are also some good good examples of imagry in the video such as the way with the picture of a dove (symbol of peace) being demolished.

As I said it might have been discussed and might be in the wrong place and you might not like the song but something I think that needs showing.

Peace out.

Hopefully lots of people will actually see the video or actually get the jist of the song, I bet thought lots of people will have varied ideas of what the song is about though

100 views and 2 replies? I hope people just don't think i'd advertising a band lol.

I watched the video again, and I think that ts trying to show that everyone has to make decisions, the beginning choice of the two friends with one going towards the dove signpost and one going towards the C symbol, capitalism perhaps?

Then throughout the video there are signs of the capitalists crushing the peace. The Black bird taking out the white bird, As movie symbolism suggests that black is the colour of evil and white being the colour of good. (not an opinion on race to clarify). The wrecking ball taking out the wall with the dove symbol.

Also down the route of the C the large building thats the heart of everything completly dominiating the landscape and dwarfs the other buildings.

It shows a rise of the little people fed up with being crushed which ultimatly ends in the main character being shot as he stood up to the oppression. Could this possibly be showing us that if we stand up we will fail? The look of shock on the mans face who took the C route might also suggest that the people in power will one day realise what they are doing to us.

It would be interesting to hear others opinions on the subject.

Thanks again!

it's a pretty good song, wonder how many people thick it's about uni-cycling.

i like the style of animation in the video, it's very layered in symbolism. nice.

I heard it for the first time on a road trip with my family. It was a different remix though, with more of a rock sound. But we all were sort of laughing when the handle bars part started, and as the song progressed the family got into more of a silent thinking listening state. It was great.

If you really want to get your doors blown off about the NWO, read some David Icke books. He's a Brit too.

Yeah I have looked into the david ike stuff, he used to play football (soccer) I think one of the best places to start when looking into the NWO is the movie zeitgist, if some of you haven't already seen it its a must see movie, it makes me so angry and upset watching it just because you realise how bad it actually is.

I'm glad some bands are looking into trying to create some more meaningful messages

Really blatant videos if you ask me, but I like the song and its pretty intelligent.
