the life within

erschienen am 08.07.2017


Wir leben in stürmischen Zeiten.
Nicht nur klimatisch.
Wir leben in Zeiten, in denen Mauern zu wachsen scheinen.
Nicht nur in den Köpfen.
Wir leben in unsicheren Zeiten.
Nicht nur finanziell.
Wir leben in Zeiten, in denen der Hass seine unberechenbare Fratze zeigt.
Nicht nur an G20 Tagen.
Wir leben in einsamen Zeiten.
Nicht nur, wenn man allein ist.

Zusammen sind wir stark.
Wann haben wir das vergessen?


Als ich diese Woche einen neuen Song schrieb, ahnte ich nicht, wie gut er zur Stimmung dieser G20 Tage passen würde. Er heißt „The life within“ und stellt die Frage, wann wir die Balance verloren haben in diesem Leben in stürmischen Zeiten.

hier das Video zum Song

The life within

Anyone can see we need a change
in a world that is cultivating rage
where humanness is cruelness
ignorance is right
when have we lost the balance
between wrong and right?

Anyone can see we need to go
beyond the black and white
and see the other side
is there somebody paying
paying with his life
for my comfort zone
my peace and my quiet?

Let’s open doors and tear down fences
leave a trace and open up
the space and time between us
and the life within
the corners of the word
outside the corners of our minds
to silence out our prejudices
and speak up to our pride
let’s start connecting humanity
let’s start reflecting equality
let’s start connecting you and me
and let us be

Anyone can see we need a change
in a world so encumbered by hate
Where money is power
ego wins the fight
when have we lost the notion
of wrong and of right?

Anyone can see we need a break
from the noise, the news, the world , the hate
how to find freedom
if we don’t unite
in our lonely search for a meaningful life?

Let’s open doors and tear down fences
leave a trace and open up
the space and time between us
and the life within
the corners of the word
outside the corners of our minds
to silence out our prejudices
and speak up to our pride
let’s start connecting humanity
let’s start reflecting equality
let’s start connecting you and me
and let us be

Oh stop for a minute before you go
out in anger and judge what you don’t know
oh stop for a moment before you make up your mind
and cement your opinion for the rest of your life
how can we learn to see
that someone else’s difference is no threat to you and me
that it won’t endanger our singularity?
