The video touches on the current problem in the U.S. regarding mass shooting and political divisiveness in the country. They said of the new clip:
“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years. Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions.
More guns or less guns isn’t the question. The real question is, why are we killing each other?”
Vocalist Johnny Hawkins continues:
“The ‘villain and victim’ narrative in media is so seared into our brains that we can’t see straight. The media has become our God and we have become its bitch.
We are blind to human solutions because our emotions have been glued to political problems, and it has paralyzed our progress.
Most of us know that mental health is the cause of mass shootings, yet we are obsessed with talking about the symptoms and gridlocking ourselves in political battles without proper action.
It’s time to find solutions… it’s time to focus on mental health.”
