about

“Take Flight”, another collaboration between Life on Planets and David Marston, grapples with the state of politics in the US, as well as in a wider global context. The song commences poetically with the lyrics “Indecision clouding up your vision, Two evils they fight for just one seat, relentless deceit.” Written by Phill Celeste of Life on Planets around the time of the 2016 US election, the song reflects the growing feeling of powerlessness amongst many people in a decidedly broken political system. Celeste experienced a heavy sense of disillusionment in politics and felt an urge to address the question of whether people truly have a say in the political process, or whether they have been fooled by an illusion of Democracy. His lyrics continue, “Today, we might not have a choice, tomorrow we might not have a voice, we can keep up the fight of we can make love all night, let’s take flight”. He expresses a dire need for escape and respite, even if momentary, from a world where money and greed trump humanity, and where propaganda and dishonesty are commonplace.
