The Ways We Go
Millions of people have to fight daily for their survival. The song is a tribute to these brave world citizens, and a reminder to all wealthy citizens that they owe their prosperity in part to these exploited people.
This song is dedicated to the brave South African people – citizens of planet earth. Let us overcome the barriers of nations and languages to fight for the interests of peaceful people.
I have to go before the sun is rising
I will be back when moon is out
My way is muddy from the rain
There’s desperation in my brain
Maybe I get some money
Would like to meet the taste of honey
The mine is deep and dark
No time for sentiments
Oh, I’m a lucky man, when I’m not shot on my way
Or being robbed one time a week, when I get my pay
Let’s turn serious – this is only my nightmare
But I know it’s reality somewhere
Don’t you feel the pain?
Don’t you taste the rain?
Let’s dance to forget
Let’s forget the regret
Our dreams are made of gold
We stay on hold
I ask you: Don’t you feel the pain?
I ask you: Don’t you taste the rain?
Let’s dance now to forget
And let us forget the regret
Your dreams are made of gold
You should still stay on hold
I have to go before the sun is rising
I will be back when life is gone
Fight for Empathy
After the story of “Spaceship Entprima” and the stage play “From Ape to Human”, the Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts were free for a new task. The decision was made for a permanent, socio-political task – the fight for more empathy in this world.
Empathy logically excludes racism, fascism, injustice, greed and all other evils of human behaviour. And when we speak of fight, we include determined resistance. We will not leave our children a world worth living in if we allow ourselves to fall permanently into romantic transfiguration or meditative retreat.
Nevertheless, every person needs a balance for his soul. If we respond to hate with hate, we will fail miserably. But we are many! If everyone does his part in daily life to improve the situation, we will win.
Make sure that you always remain powerful in your mission and avoid confrontations that harm your soul.
Exploitation of other people
The song was written in thoughts of South African miners.
Exploitation is not a purely economic phenomenon, but a state of mind. In principle, it means putting oneself above others. This has been contrary to all the principles of the United Nations Charter and most of the constitutions of democratic countries. So there is no lack of rules, and therefore exploitation is a violation of the rules of coexistence accepted by the majority of people.
To rise above these rules is therefore a crime against humanity. But why does it happen all the time anyway? It has to do with struggle for survival and competition. Neither of these can be eliminated by decree, since it is deeply rooted in our history of development as living beings. And at this point only the principle of balance can help. Unfortunately, balance is a laborious act.
However, we should use our human capacity for thought to compare the toil of balance with the experience of infinite suffering in wars and other confrontations. The result should be clear. The Second World War lasted nearly 7 years and cost millions of people their lives. How many negotiations could have been conducted in that time?
Or take a business model from the economy as an example. We have developed powerful computers that can analyze business models precisely. What if we use benevolent figures in the placeholder for employee compensation that are actually enough to survive? Is there a profit left? If not, take the time to develop the model further and further until it works without exploitation. This should not be too much to ask.
The shortest path always has the highest price. Don’t be lazy! A good education should not be seen as power but as responsibility. Support the people who want to face this responsibility and not those who promise a quick improvement. That is always a lie!
