I think about lyrics from this song at least four times a week. Is it my mantra? Does a mantra have to be comforting / uplifting or is it alright if it makes you question your entire identity? Whatever the answer, it's important to me & has greatly impacted my ethos. Taste (+ most other Animal Collective songs) challenge my preconceived notions about myself & how I relate to the world.
Am I really all the things that are outside of me? / Would I complete myself without the things I like around?
How do you feel about the song? What are your answers to those questions? What does Taste say to you about your identity? Will this form how you perceive the people around you? I know Animal Collective can be divisive, but I hope you gave it a chance! Tell me your thoughts!
