    LYRICS:

    Are we crazy
    Living our lives through a lens
    Trapped in our white picket fence
    Like ornaments

    So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

    Aren’t you lonely
    Up there in utopia
    Where nothing will ever be enough
    Happily numb

    So comfortable, we’re living
    in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot
    see the trouble, trouble

    So put your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on

    Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we’re free
    Drink, this one’s on me
    We’re all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm
    To the rhythm

    Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we’re free
    Drink, this one’s on me
    We’re all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm
    To the rhythm

    Are we tone deaf
    Keep sweeping it under the mat
    Thought we could do better than that
    I hope we can

    So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

    So put your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on

    Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we’re free
    Drink, this one’s on me
    We’re all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm
    To the rhythm

    Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we’re free
    Drink, this one’s on me
    We’re all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm
    To the rhythm

    It is my desire
    Break down the walls to connect, inspire
    Up in your high place, liars
    Time is ticking for the empire
    The truth they feed is feeble
    As so many times before
    They greed over the people
    They stumbling and fumbling
    And we about to riot
    They woke up, they woke up
    the lions

    Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we’re free
    Drink, this one’s on me
    We’re all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm
    To the rhythm

                Love the atompunk aesthetic. Nice blend of 1950s pleasantville sentimentality with modern day social issues.

                                                It's sort of like when you go "hey, can we hire Michel Gondry?" and they go "no, too expensive, also said he didn't really want to do a Katy Perry song" and so you go "well what if... what if we just spent everything on production design and VFX?" and the people in the production design department go "no way, really?" and they go "yes way!" and then you get this, which I rather like despite what I just said being true.

                                                                                    I think the meaning of this song is a call to attention on all of the danger society really is. It forces people to be what they aren't, to make them "Normal and perfect", or to make them fit "In the rhythm." Overall, societal standards from the past century cannot be held, because they're outdated and wrong now. They mentally and emotionally stunt a lot of people, and it affects all of us, whether you know it or not. The manly man, the womanly woman, those figures still haunt us.

Pensé que quizá "encadenados al ritmo" podría significar que la música también nos controla de alguna manera, o que nos acostumbran a ciertos ritmos y así venden (like el reggaeton, que es todo igual).
