This is one of the most powerful songs I’ve ever heard. The instrumental and vocal buildup takes place wonderfully, but what I really meant with the word “powerful” lies in the lyrics of this song. I could say much more about it, but I’ll let these guys do the talking and you to do the thinking.
“So I’m writing to apologize for all the horrors committed in my name,
Although that was never what I intended, I feel I should take my share of the blame.
All the good I tried to do was corrupted when all the religion got into full swing,
What I thought were quite clear messages were taken to unusual extremes.
My teachings taken out of context to meet the agendas of others,
Interpretations taken to many different ways and hidden meanings discovered
It was You that built the towers
It was You that invented bombs, and the fear that comes with them
And it was You that invented money, and the corrupt economic systems
You invented terms like just-war and terms like friendly fire
And it was You that didn’t know when to stop digging deeper, when to stop building higher
It was You that exhausted the resources I carefully laid out on this earth,
And it was You that even saw these problems coming but accredited them little worth
It was You that used my teachings for your own personal gain
And it was You that committed such tragedies, even though they were in my name
So I apologize for any mistakes I made, and when my words misconstrued
But this apology’s to Mother Nature, ‘cause I created YOU”
You can purchase the song (or album) from BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. And in case you’re wondering, yes, I did purchase Dan Le Sac’s album :).
