“AIM” – MIA

Leave a comment Standard

You have to constantly redefine who you are.

-M.I.A.

M.I.A. is a woman who crosses borders and concepts. The last album she released, “AIM”, is her most mature and interesting work.

Freedom, ‘I’dom, ‘Me’dom
Where’s your ‘We’dom?
This world needs a brand new ‘Re’dom
We’dom – the key
We’dom the key’dom to life!

Translation: Don’t focus on your life (I’dom, Me’dom) as if it exists in a microcosm. Instead, you should extend your concern to the surrounding people (We’dom). What benefits the entire group uplifts the individual as well.

Don’t you wanna
Tell me if you’re gonna
Put down your armor
Promise no more drama
Throw my hands
Say this is people power
Throw up my finger and I’m taking on the Tower

(Alright, she released this song as a single, and it isn’t on the album. The video is excellent, and the song is a good representation of the songs you’ll find on “AIM”.)
