"On With the Song"

    Many victims of the hell that surrounds us have been forced into fights against what harms us, instead of being able to freely continue with our own lives. This fight is reflected in this song, as it is in some of my writings.
   Mary Chapin Cartenter's older songs reflect a deep, genuine heart that focused on healing, like what was expressed in her "House of Cards" song. Many who focus on healing the Heart of humanity have been being targeted, in various ways, by those who appose such progress and those who blindly follow them, and I think Mary is one of those targets. Our world is so filled with covert wars and negativity and inconspicuous destruction of human beings that its sometimes hard to keep a focus on the good and the Light and the Hope for freedom to be restored. Under the influence of technological mind control, too many of our fellow human beings have been roped into, and blindly follow, dark forces that pretend to be good. The parts of this song that I really like are, "This isn't for the ones who would gladly swallow everything their leader would have them know, bowing and kissing while the truth goes missing... This isn't for the man who can't count the bodies, can't comfort the families, can't say when he's wrong, playing 'I'm the decider' like some sort of Messiah, while another day passes and a hundred souls gone. No, this is for the ones who stand their ground when the lines in the sand get deeper, when the whole world seems to be upside down, and the shots being taken get cheaper. This is for the ones that I see above me. . . Light for the world and hope for the weary."

I hope Light and Peace and Heart and Hope
and Freedom grow and wipe out the wars.
