It's hard to be born into a world that's crumbling. It's an existential crisis that has wormed its way into the collective consciousness of every generation: "what if it all ends, right here and right now". The only difference between those generations past and us is that we very well may actually be here to see it all.
And we may not, which is comforting. However, it really does seem like we're just that close, doesn't it?
But after all this, who's to tell us that ignorance is bliss? Maybe the bliss can come from the knowledge- knowing that it's all falling apart. Revel in it. Things are changing and they are changing fast. Why not cope the only healthy way the modern world has given us? Sway and dance and thrash into the unknown.
Blast this mix and let the melodies of dissonant joy and lyrics of impending chaos move you to love our collapsing world. From Roy Orbison to Soundgarden to Childish Gambino - groove to the best of the doomed.
After all, there's not much left to lose.
