about

The world is on fire, both metaphorically and literally. We need to change things, but will enough of us wake up?

lyrics

Carved out a hole to let the pressure out,
it bled red into the sky.
Tension so thick no wonder our home is,
ready to try and shake us off.
We put our hearts on sale,
bought out by the quick lies.
Quick became the new slow,
too slow to see the signs of the end times.

'cause we can see each other, but we can't touch.
What a weight, what a bind, what'll become our crutch.
It's always a sign of the end times,
when they make love a crime.

Carved out our caves and they stole all our children while we slept.
Our eyes were open but distracted by the lights,
stationary giants slumbering targets.
They've turned us all against each other incase we do arise,
and any hand that reaches out the help or mobilise will be shot down, called out, by a sibling still knee deep in sleep.
Sign of the end times, when they make love a crime.

Falling asleep at the wheel, has become normalised
Getting sucked into a screen, has become normalised
Turning a blind eye, has become normalised
Blind faith in the word of your master, has become normalised
Shouting over each other, has become normalised
Anger over patience, has become normalised
Dehumanisation has become normalised
Detention centre homes, have become normalised
Genocide has become normalised
War, has become privatised
Dumbing down of the nations has become normalised.
Dictators in sheep's clothing yes, they have all been normalised.
Rewriting history for good PR, normalised.
Modern day slavery, has been normalised.
Brutality at the hand of those meant to protect us, the law enforcement has been militarised.
Disregard for human life, has been normalised.
Mob mentality, has been normalised.
Supersize starvation, has been normalised.
The punishing of sooth sayers and rebels, normalised.
Hunting for sport, has been normalised.
Seeking validation by the monster, yes normalised
Winner takes all democracy has been normalised
There's no need to conquer us if were already divided.

They've turned us all against each other incase we do arise,
and any hand that reaches out to help or mobilise will be
shot down, called out by a sibling still knee deep in sleep.
Sign of the end times, when they make love a crime.

about

Gilan London, UK

Somewhere between the pit of despair and the gentle calm, there is a tightrope dance happening. It forces me to walk this line everyday.

I intend to wring it by its neck and force it into song.

Join me on this journey.
