Από το άλμπουμ των Dead Can Dance [Lisa Gerrard και Brendan Perry], Spleen and Ideal, 1984 …περισσότερο για τους στίχους
Ακολουθώντας τη διάθεση του οικοδεσπότη.

From Dead Can Dance [Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry] 1984 album, Spleen and Ideal …also mainly for the lyrics.
Following the host’s mood.

◼︎

❝ In times of great vexation,
When one must choose between what’s right and wrong.
Freedom, so they say,
Amounts to the choices you have made
Through all the arbitrary rationale concerning liberty.
Freedom, I must say,
Exists within unconditioned minds.
Reason has come of age.
How can you be satisfied with things the way they are,
When all that surrounds us now, and so much more,
Remains inside the keeper’s dark embrace?
The insatiable thirst for power has made
Idols out of mortals, gods into clay,
Soldiers into heros, children into slaves,
All damned.
Desires,
Their hopes betrayed.
Who will suffer the laws
That State can decide your child’s education
Unless you pay the price?
Who will suffer their laws?
Who will suffer their minds?
Who will suffer their words?
Who will suffer their designs?
Who will suffer their laws?
Who will suffer their minds?
Who will suffer their words?
Who will suffer their designs?

…food for thought.

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
