This Is So Relevant Today

October 11, 2008
This song is from The Moody Blues album, Seventh Sojourn (1972) and I think it sums up just how the world is today…
 
LOST IN A LOST WORLD
 
I woke up today, I was crying,
Lost in a lost world
‘Cos so many people are dying,
Lost in a lost world.
Some of them are living an illusion
Bounded by the darkness of their minds
In their yes it’s nation against nation
With racial pride, sad hearts they hide
Thinking only of themselves, they shun
The light. They think they’re right
Living in their empty shells
 
Oh, you can see their world is crashing
Crashing down around their feet
And angry people in the street
Are telling them they’ve had their fill
Of politics that wound and kill
Grow, the seeds of evolution
Revolution never won
It’s just another form of gun
To do again what they have done
With all our brothers youngest sons.
 
Everywhere you go you’ll see them searching
Everywhere you turn you’ll feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answer
We’ll look again, come on my friend
Love will find them in the end
Come on my friend we’ve got to bend
On our knees and say a prayer
 
Oh you can feel the world is pining
Pining for someone who really cares
Enough to share his love
With all of us, so we can be
An ever loving family
Have you forgotten we’re all children
Children from a family tree
That’s longer than a centipede
And started long ago when you
And I were only love…
 
I woke up today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world,
‘Cos so many people are dying
Lost in a lost world.
