From Ruud Fieten

Mad Dogs in the Sun is the slow burning fever dream of a soldier in a war torn and dystopian world. The story is told from the perspective of a soldier who has gone to war, his head filled with imperialistic propaganda. As the war rages, he finds out his enemies were told the same lies as he was. The chorus is an outcry to his lover who he longs to be with again. It’s a melancholic folk rock song with beautiful lush sounds and 70’s vibes. The songs starts out as a slow burner and completely combusts when the chorus comes in.

Sound: Warm, Organic, Beautiful, Romantic, Dystopian, Chaos, Indie, Powerful, Bittersweet, Psychedelic

Lyrics
Oh my god, we’re in perpetual war
So I guess George was right, welcome to ‘84
Oh my god, there’s blood on my hands
So I guess I’ll have to wash it off
Before I spill it on the promised land

And with the passing of the days
We let our morals fade away
And in the morning I’ll be with you
And it’ll be a different day
When all these mad dogs in the sun
Are all fading away

You aim to divide
You aim to rule
You stir up your lies
And feed them to the fools
I want to take that false flag
And paint it white
But I sold my soul to them
Along with my rights

And with the passing of the days
We let our morals fade away
And in the morning I’ll be with you
And it’ll be a different day
When all these mad dogs in the sun
Are all fading away
