I knew there was a reason why I love Nico Jaar’s music so much.
For me, this song is about the futility of political borders; or rather, visible, territorial ones. Then, is it any wonder territorially-sovereign-monpolistic-majoritarian-democratic states suppress informational signals? Inquisitive minds will get my drift, but I’ll add a fuller interpretation to this post when I get the time.
For now, meditate on these lyrics and let your mind wander. “Space is only noise if you can see” – whatever could that mean?
