In this world of underground bands like Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Black Angels it has been cool to reference horrible scenarios ironically. Cults does it up right, though. Does the name "Cults" and the content of this video send up any red flags? Just curious what ATS has to say about this, what I think is an amazing video.

It doesn't send up any red flags with me. In fact, I think it's an incredibly positive video, especially because it uses the people of Jonestown. For me, it gives a perspective of the hope these people had at the beginning.

Here are the lyrics:


I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and stop to see your day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away

I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and make it light all day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and not care where you lay

Well I know what's good
Exactly cause I have been there before
Yeah I know what's good
Exactly those things night cannot behold

I really want to go out
I really want to go outside and stop to see your day
You really want to hole up
You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away

I think it's good to go out
cause if you don't you'll never make a memory that will stay
I think that you should wake up
I think I want to live my life and you're just in my way

Thanks for the lyrics. I agree with you.

This music just doesn't seem to be talked about.
Some posters worry about Kanye and Miley. And something hidden. But this video gets to the crux of it all, in my opinion.
