Lately I’ve been busy drumming and working and haven’t listened to much music, however with the recent WOMAD festival, as well as an introduction to last.fm, I am rediscovering music… and it’s like sitting down and having a long chat with an old friend.
Sometimes it’s how the beat feels, and sometimes it’s the lyrics… but there is something so fundamental about music, that it makes me wonder how some get by without it.
In sitting with my ear plugged in to my PC, listening to last.fm, I was intrigued with the lyrics from a song called “Mass Destruction” by Faithless. I have included some of them below. I am finding that I enjoy new music as well as old… which is somewhat a relief as I was always afraid that the saying “If it’s too loud, you’re too old” would one day apply to me!! It probably will, just not yet!
Why these lyrics? Because I worry about this world, and if you haven’t already read my post on this year’s Blog Action Day, then you should at least publicise this one cause – the environment!
LYRICS – MASS DESTRUCTION
Chorus: Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you’re soar away sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruction
You could a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
