Lost in a lost world

Too much information overload over the past few days (weeks?) has left me feeling the need to gain some perspective.

Last year, I’d shared the Moody Blues’ Lost In A Lost World, which is one of my favorite decompression songs – not sure why, really, but it helps me focus my thoughts, so I’m sharing it once again, while I try to find some words of my own for Sunday’s post.

Pax vobiscum.

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

— Michael Pinder 1972 – performed by the Moody Blues
