This is the video for "Ozymandias" which appears on the new album. The title refers to a sonnet written by the English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. It is considered one of Shelly's best works. In antiquity, Ozymandias was an alternative name for the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II. The theme of this song, as in the poem by Shelly is "we are vain and we are in trouble". On October 7, 2014, President Obama declared at a DNC Fundraiser that "There’s a sense possibly that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it." This is the general feeling that is starting to set in in the west. Yet, rather like Ozymandias, we try to take comfort in the little empires that we have built or the wealth that we have amassed as individuals or as a nation. But Ozymandias teaches us that those things will not protect us, nor will the bring us significance now not honor us when we are gone from the earth. Where then shall we take refuge? That is the point of both the poem and the song. We cannot hold on to the things of the world but rather need to hold on to the things that are not of the world: the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. https://vimeo.com/106884266 ...
