I mean, liberate yourself... by following the step-by-step instructions laid out by our marketing campaign?
Well, I just meant that it didn't have those kinds of undertones.
I think it's hard to say if they're actually trying to make a statement. Judging from the lyrics and the general theme, I think they definitely are saying something about society and politics and whatnot, especially in "Survivalism" and "Capital G." I don't think that's the main aim of the marketing, though. That part of it just strikes me as part of a story.
