The Love Story behind “Society”
Meet Danny and Lauren of Borderline Delusion
Danny Brooks and Lauren Rhodes, members of Borderline Delusion, unfold the meaning behind their song “Society.” Touching on heavy subjects, Danny initially wrote the song in honor of his grandfather, a Holocaust survivor. Meanwhile, Lauren brought her desire to use music as a platform for mental illness awareness, and thus “Society” was born.
“Well, mental illness, it is a lot better than it was before, but it’s still very very stigmatized, so it’s not something you bring up in casual conversation…My goal is to make my music a way for mental illness to speak for itself.”
– Lauren Rhodes
“Love is more than an emotion…it’s a passion for life.” Lauren
