Therapy? unveil their lyric video for “Success? Success Is Survival”!

Alternative rockers Therapy? have revealed their official lyric video for the track “Success? Success Is Survival”.

Therapy?

Not afraid to speak about injustices, vocalist Andy Cairns explores some of the nature in the lyrics commenting:

The song is about the growing divide between the haves and have-nots.” And the societal views in the track “Vladimir Lenin said, ‘Capitalist society, is and has always been horror without end’. The opening line of the track is “the cream of this country, rich and thick”. And is paraphrased from Samuel Beckett to describe his patrons at Portora School for Boys in Enniskillen (i.e. rich, entitled).

This then leads into the pre-chorus “that’s the order that’s been set, we’re expected to accept”. This looks at how a ‘caste’ system is increasing. The second verse contrasts this with imagery of desperate immigrants who regularly risk their own and their children’s lives to cross perilous water.

The title and chorus of the song comes from Leonard Cohen. Asked in an interview in the early 70’s what his definition of success was he replied “Success? Success is survival.”

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands and labels. In parallel, I also worked for other magazines and webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
