Lyric Slide: Racing the Rats, Inheriting Lies
As we work to bring this project to life, we’re sharing what we can for now. Though they’ve not yet been properly recorded, the Mutineer songs have long since been written. And in fact, the lyrical theme and tone of the songs pretty much set the way for what the band name and project would become.
This lyric is from a song called “Redundancy.” It’s one of the key pieces, thematically, of the whole project. The song is an observation of how our generation (I’m 41) and those coming up behind us are now actively questioning what we’ve just taken on faith to equal the “American (or in our case, Canadian) Dream.” Interpret it as you like.
