    Monday Live

    A clear blue sky, today we can see the mountains...

    Today's song is mirroring my thoughts of this weekend.

    I've been playing this song for a very long time, I haven't played it for a while, actually last time I played it was in South Africa, it was a song I played with bands live, and even did a version here at the time (2018); I never really paid too much attention of the lyrics, but today more than ever this song seems fitting.

    It's a song from Gnarls Barkley, called Crazy, the lyrics are just very well written and have a deep meaning:

    And when you're out there without care
    Yeah, I was out of touch
    But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
    I just knew too much
    Does that make me crazy

    I was trying to find a quote about madness that I've been looking for a long time and once again, Mr.Spock had the answer:


    "I just knew too much" speaks to me, we live in a world where we are supposed to not pay attention to what is going on, stay in a constent state of bliss, don't ask questions! The truth, or at least a version of it, can be very overwhelming, and push a lot of people to insanity, it can make you losing touch with other people, it can be a lonely road, and it doesn't seem to get better with time. It's quite the opposite, as you will start losing patience with many lost ones oblivious to others alterior motives.

    And I hope that you are having the time of your life
    But think twice, that's my only advice
    Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you
    Who do you think you are
    Ha ha ha, bless your soul
    You really think you're in control

    Again, a reference to the bliss when you are just "having the time of your life", when you decide to make decisions that will affect your life in the short term; you might be able to go on a holiday, the restaurant, go see the game, have a beautiful life for a short period of time, but what did you just give away in the long run?
    I think that's how people give up their rights, we give them an illusion of choice, and they "really thing they're in control" of their lives, whereas all the problems, reactions, solutions, were already decided for them in advance.

    My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on the limb
    And all I remember is thinking I want to be like them
    Ever since I was little
    Ever since I was little it looked like fun
    And it's no coincidence I've come
    And I can die when I'm done

    Now it's rare to have a 3rd verse as important as the first one, in many cases, the songwriting quality dindles the further we progress in a song, this isn't the case for Crazy.

    This verse is about your mission on earth. How far are you ready to go to defend what matters to you? Would you give your life for it? Who are the real heroes of this world?
    We thought we would never have to ask ourselves these types of question, but in all honesty, maybe that's what it means to be a man or a woman today.

    If you're reading this in the future, as a case study for what happened around the year 2021, this is what happened, we started thinking a lot about you guys, and what we are about to give you. I hope it's not all fucked up! I also hope that a place like Hive made a difference, as we managed to band together and form a strong community.
