Delicious Grace - Chaos and Shame
on: December 27, 2018, 19:31:19
Hello everybody. I usually don't write about this particular subject but I couldn't help it. Here it goes a political statement about something really wrong. Take it for what it is.

Lyrics:

Em Brasília 19 horas...

To find chaos and shame
You don’t have to go this far
Just take a look
Everything is falling apart
 
To find chaos and shame
You just have to turn on the news
The president is dead
That shouldn’t have been so cruel

You may find hope
In a blind spot
The lies are laying down
And you people has been cursed

Get out of my way
You’re the one to blame (Shame! Shame!)
I sure don’t need your greed
And you can’t ask for mercy

chorus:
There’s no way to run
There’s no way to go
If I saw you
Standing so close
There’s no way to know
There’s no way to go
If I saw you
Standing so close
 
To find chaos and shame
What happened to progress?
You’ve betrayed the nation
With your promises

To find chaos and shame
Just pull the trigger
Your time is up...

chorus:
There’s no way to run
There’s no way to go
If I saw you
Standing so close
There’s no way to know
There’s no way to go
If I saw you
Standing so close

Para o povo liberdade
Para o Brasil democracia

Wow. Seriously heavy stuff @alcapone_dudu . The guitar solo that takes this song out is a visceral extension of the lyrics. You are definitely hitting hard with this and well done for that.

Thank you @Leonard Scaper for taking the time to listen to this song. It means a lot you liked some of it.

We're going through some heavy things here in Brazil politics-wise. That's my duty as a songwriter to manifest my dissatisfaction reagarding those matters.

There's a lot of that going around right now it seems.  I just listened again from that perspective.....you really do bring that emotion to the listener through both the music and the lyrics.

Throughout history, music has been a very good way to express this kind of dissatisfaction and even to gather folks together to make changes.

Your song describes a very painful social and political reality in your country, but perhaps you have not realized that your story is transportable to many other countries, with more or less violence, a story that portrays the stupidity of ambition, something that Every day grows more, or at least that's what they show us.

Good explosion of emotions.

Feliz Año Nuevo.

Yes! It's very cheesy to say but music is still one of the most powerful tools human race have.

Thank you for the support.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to my song. I'm very glad you liked it.

I'm aware that this a ''universal'' type of song right now. We're living in strange times as I like to call it. The elements in portuguese is to focus a little bit towards my country because I write in english and to make the two things work is difficult for me.

Feliz 2019 @Mora Amaro La Loba!
