Title track del nuovo album dei Metric

Canzone sull'arte del dubbio e sul come il dubbio serva a salvarci dalle menzogne dei politici che spacciano la guerra come autodifesa.

Metric Emily Haines


Another big word that has recently become pretty important to you is the word “doubt”. I mean, you’ve dedicated an entire album to it: your new record “Art Of Doubt”. Is doubting a human property that is more positive or more negative?

More positive. I would say it’s the origin of science and the arts and poetry and everything we know—because we’ve questioned: What’s in the sky? What is the world made of? Doubt and questioning are the heart. That’s where all the good stuff happens.

[...]

You know, views are shifting all around the world and politicians are exploiting fear. So, in fact, it’s the opposite of doubt. It’s that they’re like exploiting a sort of arrogance or a sense of entitlement in people as opposed to a sense of looking and examining at the world realizing you’re just one part of it. I feel like the world is really in a questioning moment, but I think we could use a little more doubt that these leaders have our best interest in mind they’re scapegoating a certain group of people. I think that’s a good sign that somebody is full of shit. You know, they’re like: “I’m gonna scapegoat that guy and then cut taxes for another guy!”

Blossoms fill the trees that line the

Where did all your worries go?
Now I guess we'll never know
How you hit the
Well, how you hit the

You said "don't let your heart give out"
No, I won't let my heart give out
You said "don't let your breath run out"
No, I won't let my breath run out

Well it's true, I push too hard I guess
To use whatever fuel is left
At it's best it's all the art of doubt

Well, I really don't know how we call this peace
'Cause it's a goddamn shame about the wall to wall wars
Pleading self-defence but the story's old
Now there's worth that we're told
There's a promise on the way, yeah
I don't believe what they say

You said "don't let your heart give out"
No, I won't let my heart give out
You said "don't let your breath run out"
No, I won't let my breath run out

Well, it's magical, your meaningless
Habitual, mundane excess
At it's best it's all the art of doubt
Doubt

Now we gotta take it upon ourselves
Next time the kick drum starts
Drag your mind from the gutter babe
All this isolation's sinister
So be kind to yourself
There will never be another you
There's just nobody else that's you

You said "don't let your heart give out"
No, I won't let my heart give out
You said "don't let your breath run out"
No, I won't let my breath run out

Well, it's true, I push too hard I guess
To use whatever fuel is left
Yeah it's true, I push too hard I guess
