Myopia was written in response to short term thinking from people in power. Another track that justifies the word ‘disillusionment’ in the album title.
Initially, the lyrics explore the trap of making selfish decisions that in turn, leave other people in worse off positions and exploited. Another running theme is about profit being a priority above duty.
The big closing moment that finishes this track is in regards to our climate and the mess we are making of the planet and whilst positive strides have been made, there is still a lot of lip service, empty promises and unsustainable processes going on.
The use of the word ‘Prudence’ has declined in the last few years but I think it should become fashionable again.
I certainly wish that we all behave in a way that is more prudent and less myopic.
