I'll show you that God

Yes! It's literally the exact same sentiment, just expressed in a different (worse) way :facepalm:

It's just ok. Seems like they were trying to make an uprising 2.0 that can be played in movies, TV, and sports promotions. Trying to repeat a past success.

I do miss that

It does make me wonder how the CW connection came about, and if it was written with it in mind.

Whenever I think about the song it eventually transitions into Lady Gaga's You and I :LOL: the chord progression is one chord off and they have similar tempos.

You know the times you were criticising Revolt for inciting to rise up in a silly way considering the band's background?
Well, there's also a phrase in Dig Down that goes like this:
"With a gun to your head / You must find a way".

Reading the Dig Down lyrics, I think the two songs are different in a significant way.
Dig Down, as clumsy as it still is, is saying that you have to try and find hope no matter how bad the situation is. You can't just give up. And as much as I suck at that, I do agree with it.

Revolt on the other hand states that the answer to all life's problems is being positive, by thinking differently one can shape the world around them. It pretty much paints people who face hardship as bringing it on themselves, or at least allowing themselves to be victims, through not having the right mentality. When this is a very real political position, it becomes a little frightening (and reprehensible,) when applied to even just the topics the song brings up.
Dig Down doesn't really seem to present "finding faith" as an answer to the ills of the world, but rather a necessity to avoid giving in to depression, and at least implies that it's not as simple as Revolt would have you believe.

That said, the big reason Revolt's childish chorus lyrics irk me (other than the lame Tea Party mentality) is simply because I think the song sounds really good, and they're a black stain on something I want to really enjoy.
The song would have worked a hell of a lot better in the original "reversed" Drones story where someone was optimistically na´ve about changing the world, or being above it, and then ends up being crushed under the weight of the problem. I really like the idea of Revolt/Defector into Mercy.

THIS is so spot on

Dig down just didn't make it into Drones. Now on to something completely different please.

Except Matt wrote Dig Down just a few weeks ago.

?

On Twitter, he said they finished it 7 or 8 weeks ago.

5 seconds into Dig Down, I thought "Madness"

10 seconds into Dig Down, I thought about this forum's inevitable reaction. Uh oh.

Can't really say that i want to keep listening to the track after the 2nd or 3rd time. Pretty dull song unfortunately. B-side material.

If they plan to play sets this summer with Dig Down, Madness, Dead Inside and (God forbid) Undisclosed Desires, it's going to be quite the monotonous affair.
