Weapon of the Future

It could have been another Violet Hill or Politik with a theme like that.I was quite astonished when I heard Chris say the inspiration is supposed to have come from a book about strong women in adverse / dangerous life situations. Because to me (and I say that as an objective criticism, this is not Newplay-bashing or something) the lyrics and disco-dance tune suggest the theme being "let's have fun now/new love/life is for enjoying/YOLO-attitude" rather than empowering women....
I would have expected a more serious (and by all means upbeat, but less light-flowing) song about a subject like the one Chris supposedly was inspired from, but well...
Although, with that said you can't really trust anything Chris says anymore.
