“You had better wake up and understand that there are people who are guiding your life and you don’t even know it.”
So says Political Philosopher Jordan Maxwell at the end of the clip. Maxwell and others like David Icke, along with the events of September 11 and subsequent ‘War on Terror’ were the major influences on the themes of this track. The idea that we are all under 24 hour digital surveillance and having our every movement, transaction, interaction tracked and logged is not as far fetched as Orwell wrote in 1984.
For the clip we decided to ‘track’ Cog as they went about their lives and show what could well be happening to any of us.
The only problem was COG’s fans were unaware of the clip we were making and at times thought the band really were under surveillance leading to some interesting confrontations with our unfortunate DOP.
