Lost in a Lost World

I had a few things that I was going to write about today, but to be totally honest, the weather was just too perfect today to let the rest of the world spoil it.

But, the world is still an overwhelming place when you pay it too much attention, and sometimes I need help in tuning it out.

Probably my favorite band for decompressing is the Moody Blues – I used to keep the entire 4 disc anthology in my car in the dark ages before a phone that connected to the car and played music. My favorite song for decompression is “Lost in a Lost World”. Although when I listen to the song now, I marvel at how little seems to have really changed since Mike Pinder wrote it in 1972. And so, even though it may seem like an odd choice for peace and tranquility, it works for me.

Perhaps it will for you as well.

I woke up today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
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 eyes it’s nation against 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, can you see their world is crashing?
Crashing down around their feet
Angry people in the street
Telling them they’ve had their fill
Of politics that wound and kill

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 see them searching
Everywhere you turn you feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answer
Well, look again, come on my friend

Love will find them in the end
Come on my friend
We’ve got to bend
Down on our knees and say a prayer

Oh, can you 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 we forgotten we’re all children?
Children from a family tree
That’s longer than a centipede
Started long ago when you and I
Were only love

I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world

So many people, so many people, people
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people, people
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people, people
Lost in a lost world
