On Wednesday (September 2), the explosive new project was officially released and it's literally the perfect song to scream and let out some of that excess energy you have from sitting around the house all day.
The pair sing in the chorus: “Obey / We hope you have a lovely day / Obey / You don't want us to come out and play, away na-na / There's nothing to see here / It's under control / You're only gambling with your soul / Obey / Whatever you do / Just don't wake up and smell the corruption.”
“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand,” YUNGBLUD said of the song's theme. “They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all.”
Oli Sykes also explained: “We consider ourselves free but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like s*** ain’t f***** up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”
“Obey” is part of BMTH's four-part album, Post Human.
