Drab Majesty – 39 By Design

’39 By Design’, the first video from Drab Majesty’s second LP: ‘The Demonstration’. Remembering the 39 that ascended to the Next Level, now 20 years ago. Inspired by Heaven’s Gate, the video proposes the idea of ‘what if they actually ascended?’ and is a faithfully accurate rebuilding of the infamous infinity projection shot that frames Marshall Applewhite in one of his final address speeches regarding their imminent exit to the “Next Level”.

Lyrics:

When you walked alone to leave your life at home
You really wanted to die
And if you hoped to hold the key to eternity
You really wanted to die

Can’t count your blessings saying goodbye
Did you really watch your desires resign?
In the case of a wanderin’ eye

When you fell to Earth and lost the love to love
You really wanted to try
Can’t count your blessings saying goodbye

39, by design
Did they beam you up into the lights in the sky?
If you could take a polaroid of your life
Would you cry?
Would you make them stare into the whites of your eyes?
(Eternal point of view)

And when you came to turn the hands on the sands of time
You really wanted to die
And then you showed them all you fell
It was so hard to break the spell
You just wanted to die
Can’t count your blessings saying goodbye

39, by design
Did they beam you up into the lights in the sky?
If you could take a polaroid of your life
Would you cry?
Would you make them stare into the whites of your eyes?
(Eternal point of view)

Really just a roll of the dice
When truth or lies will make you cry
Really doesn’t make a lot of sense
Too tense to recompense
(The end we’ll all be cleansed)
