Young people get a bad time of it.
I won't defend all the stuff that small groups get up to, but I will defend the fact that they are left trying to find their way in a world they are inheriting that is, for want of a stronger phrase, not the ideal.
Nothing But Thieves sum up quite a lot of that.
Of course the real trouble makers, the real disturbance in the force, are those whose eyes are being opened, and are starting fires designed to bring about change...
... They're the sort I'll never apologise for. Let's help them burn down the things that are making the rest of us live like animals.
Sometimes songs just get an "AMEN!"
This is one of those. And I think it speaks for itself as a song... I'm not sure what I can add!
Anyone else feel it?
They say that ignorance is bliss.
Sometimes we'd rather close our eyes and have everything go away.
Perhaps if we sleep things will be better when we wake. Someone will have magically fixed the problem.
I guess this song just draws together the thoughts that I've already had with "Bridge over troubled water" and "Eyes of a child".
