dominicwilliams86 Some excellent chord progressions on this track and Ivan has really kept the instrumentation tight. The solo is suitably grungy with just a hint of retro early 1990s. I can see this track as the ending credits music to a film.

about

The album kicks off with “Amnesia” which could almost be mistaken for Soundgarden with its simple but effective distorted power chords in the intro.The rhythm in the verses and the 70’s organ intertwined with the guitar demonstrate the heavy influence of the 80’s on Ivan’s music. It is hard to not like this track, the lyrics are a definite political statement about the fear that has been foisted upon people since the tragic events of 9/11, and the confusion that resulted. The black and white film clip is a testament to Ivan’s creative sensibilities, it contains some cool surfing wipeouts which could distract you from the track’s political element, but oddly enough only tends to cement it into your consciousness all the more. The chorus poses a question to the listener, and presents the challenge to examine oneself inwardly. For a song that has so much going for it musically, you can’t help but admire the craftsmanship that went into the lyric writing to not only have you tapping your feet to it but to also be thought provoking at the same time.

lyrics:

lyrics

terrified of what you'll be
hypnotised by what you see
dignified by who you are
mystified by what will be

herbicidal remedy
suicidal tendencies
sterilised by what you've seen
not surprised by what has been

how can know who you are
how can you know where we really came from
it's time you found out just what this life is really for
how can know who you are
how can you know where we really came from
it's time you found out just what this life is really for

how can know who you are
how can you know where we really came from
it's time you found out just what this life is really for
how can know who you are
how can you know where we really came from
it's time you found out just what this life is really for
