"Wild West" lyrics:
Anonymous artist NEO 10Y interlaces activism with music, and it's causing a commotion.Considering the volatile digital age we're living in, that's what the world needs right now. NEO 10Y's experimental artistic expression in his new song "Wild West" is a product of the chaos that ensues from a dependence on the world-wide web. He imagines a "dystopian post apocalyptic reality when the internet is turned off," a concept one-fourth of the world's population has never experienced. "'Wild West' is about addiction to technology and how [we] almost need to learn to live in 3D again, as humans," he tells BreatheHeavy.com. "A lot of my lyricism is inspired by conspiracy theories, my brain sometimes feels like an episode of Black Mirror; 'Wild West' is definitely a product of that... It's a commentary on the state of the Western world and the privilege we have to hide behind technology to avoid human engagement. It's personal as much as it is philosophical." Earlier this month, NEO 10Y made waves for his three-part film that centers on “killing” Trump from the public consciousness titled NEO 10Y v. NIHIL: The Kid That Killed Trump. It resulted in threatening letters and a report to the FBI for sedition, which he admitted was "scary and weird," so for his protection his face is masked. "It allows me to express myself politically in ways I wouldn't have been able to. I also wanted the artistry to speak for itself; art not ego." The takeaway? "Trade in your luxuries and check your privilege; otherwise we will end up in an inevitable civil war of subsets." Listen to "Wild West," which is also available on iTunes and Spotify, below.
Poetic license and a narrative or three Genius enhancement living underground for me No one in LA walks except a vagabond When they turn off the box, you'll tell me it was wrong Aux enfants de la chance (To the fortunate/lucky kids) Your future's in the wild Wild West Et tu neglige ma réponse (and you neglect my reply) Magnetic in the wild Wild West Chui tranquil mais je danse (I'm quiet but I dance) Cinematic in the wild wild wild Wild West Don't turn us off Don't lock us down We cannot fly or go get high Don't lose your fi-ight The day the net dies. Welcome delusions of society forlorn Trading Tom Ford and Dior for a uniform Your GPA, it don't matter anymore You fucked it up with your regressive stance on war Aux enfants de la chance (To the fortunate/lucky kids) Your future's in the wild Wild West Et tu neglige ma réponse Magnetic in the wild Wild West Chui tranquil mais je danse Cinematic in the wild Wild West Don't turn us off Don't lock us down We cannot fly or go get high Don't lose your fi-ight The day the net dies To fight the Lies your human side Bitter old men circumvent pride Don't lose your fi-ight The day the net dies Folk songs to feel like you are blue Torn vocal chords And silence too...
