A Modern Myth Lyrics

Play "A Modern Myth"
on Amazon Music

Did we create a modern myth
Did we imagine half of it
Would happen in a thought from now

Save yourself
Save yourself
The secret is out
The secret is out

To buy the truth
And sell a lie
The last mistake before you die
So don't forget...

    I think this song is about how we make a lie, go by it just so we can keep our sanity.
    I think the guy finds out the lies are fake and that he never really had a reason for him to live.

    ANother thing, he is finding the truth that we humans say (Get the myth part) and how it happens right now (Modern)
    SO it basicly states that people all around us our living our lives made up of lives, to not go insane

    Also that people have truths, things insane, so we go just by lies.

    Just out of curiosity, which music video are you speaking of? I tried to find an official music video for this song but I don't think they ever made one for it.

    M Says: Its About the fact that we as humans create a lie for ourselves..Living in that lie keeps us sane..If you take the music video into account it kinda makes sense..The dude in the video has found the truth behind the lie.seeing that every thing he had believed in was fiction he found no other reason to live...

    Thats at least what I thought..

    An ignorant humanity is trapped in the depths and not even aware of its own limited perspective. There are invisible truths lying under the apparent surface of things which only the most enlightened can grasp. It reminds me a lot Plato's Allegory of the Cave...
