“Akira” focuses on hysteria which is expressed by a fast tempo and sudden changes in the music’s rhythm. The lyrical content draws from the 1988 film of the same name and makes parallels between the uncontrollable transformation of Tetsuo, who slips into madness, and everyday feelings about stress, anxiety, fear, and more.
