Pacha Magazine:“You’re the truth not I…” Which Placebo line holds the most significance?
Brian Molko:The one you’ve chosen is a fine example as it is a direct message to our fans. In song and on stage I speak my truth, but I have no delusions of grandeur that mine is absolute. There’s enough ambiguity in my writing for our fans to find their own stories in our songs. I also really like the line: “We can build a new tomorrow, today,” from ‘Speak In Tongues’. I sincerely believe it’s a call to arms to build a more tolerant future. But the change has to start within ourselves first; we all have the choice to live our lives with more compassion and kindness. I see it as karma – the more you give selflessly, the more comes back your way.
