Lost In A Lost World

This is a song written by Mike Pinder, formerly of The Moody Blues. Essentially it is a protest about tyrannical governments but to me it also relates to recent events witnessed here in the UK!

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 and angry people in the street,
Are telling them they’ve had their fill of politics that wound and kill
Grow, 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’ll see them searching
Everywhere you turn you’ll 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
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.
Oh, have you forgotten we’re all children
Children from a family tree that’s longer than a centipede
And started long ago when you and I
Were only love…

I woke up 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

    Mike Pinder’s words certainly stand the test of time, no?
    It’s not just the UK.. it’s all over the world. These are frightening times, to say the least. I’m glad I found your blog. Very intelligent postings; rare these days.
