Walking the Plank with Eyes Wide Open

Been getting a number of musician Gotye's songs stuck in my head lately. I heard Eyes Wide Open lots of times before realizing it had an environmental message. Check it:


Gotye talks about the song in a "making of" video:
Eyes Wide Open is a dystopian vision that probably couldn't be more at odds with the place I recorded it. My parents have a beautiful block of land on the Mornington Penninsula in Victoria and its one of my favorite places in the world... maybe its some kind of subconscious fear of loosing a place like that in my life, like some weird sense of inevitability that indirectly inspired these apocalyptic musings.
