A friend told me about a relative who was essentially addicted to watching a certain news network. This network conveys a world of violence, conspiracies, and spreads general misinformation. This person became clinically anxious and depressed, needing therapy but not doing well. So this song is about that phenomenon, how people spread fear and suspicion through misinformation, for their own power and profit. It has a terrible effect on peoples’ lives and destabilizes the entire culture just for the advantage of a few.
The song is available on all streaming services, and if you do not have a music service, you can access the song on YouTube: https://youtu.be/lXT1ewe2Q9M
