about

Our societies have suffered crisis upon crisis. Sometimes we can’t help them from happening, but most of the time they’re just a result of human ignorance and sloth. Humans are rational beings and we are able to change our lives and behaviour. Whatever brought us down can be changed and/or brought to justice. Somehow we passively keep on following the same paved paths of the class/caste system we so eagerly want to oppose. Always remember that we are rational beings and that we are capable of doing a lot more than we’re doing now.

lyrics

Another hectic year has passed
We’re rebuilding residues
Recovering from the darkness
That turned our states into ashes

Picking up our good old lives
Keep ignoring the castes that brought us disaster-
Following the lines of our outdated classes
And I wonder
Are we but animals?
Are we just animals?
Animals?

Waving red flags on our shores
Our brains don’t need any more
Lies to starve our empathy
Or grow more indifference

Hey!

Another hectic year has passed
Rebuilding more crises’ ruins
No recovery from endorsements
That took our health and our sources

Picking up our good old lives
Keep ignoring the castes that brought us disaster-
Following the lines of our outdated classes
And I wonder
Are we but animals?
Are we just animals?
Animals?

We own more rhetorics
To answer these immoral choices
Can we throw this wheel around
And learn how to share again?
And
Learn
How
To
Share
Again?
