darkDARK about 'Cult'
"Cult" stands as a pivotal piece within the overarching narrative of the sci-fi concept album “Ghost Complex.” Delving into the depths of a thought-provoking theme, the song explores the disturbing rise of the cult of personality in our increasingly image-driven world. It sheds light on the deceptive nature of appearances, unmasking the profound emptiness that can lie behind a manipulative individual's facade. Drawing parallels to the haunting gaze of psychopaths, the lyrics paint a vivid picture of eyes that peer beyond everything and everyone. In the larger context of the album's storyline, "Cult" unveils one of the primary catalysts for the downfall of the fictional world of "Ghost Complex"—a pervasive reliance on fallacies leading to catastrophic consequences. Inspired by films like "American Psycho" and “Wall Street,” the song boldly confronts the overwhelming influence of the cult of greed, reigning above all other considerations.
