Swing Your Heartache (life's not a rehearsal)

This song seems to echo what has been going on in our time and world for a while now, in anticipation of the 'Apocalypse.' I'll let the lyrics speak for themselves.

Lyrics to Swing Your Heartache
By Young Galaxy

We do not believe that love is free
cause anything worth fighting for doesn't come for free
we believe in time that you will see
how a war might save us
how a war might save us
we believe in time that you will see
the institutions of the world will only serve to enslave us.

it's time for you and i to face the signs and realize that living's a battle
for all the times we cried and told the lies and realized life's not a rehearsal

come on babe, swing your heartache
come on babe, swing your heartache

we have learned that hope does not come cheap
we all must sacrifice in the name of our beliefs
we believe in time that you will see
the frontier is misery
the frontier is misery
what do you think it is that makes us free?
a life without boundaries if you question everything

it's time for you and i to face the signs and realize that living's a battle
for all the times we've cried and told the lies and realized life's not a rehearsal

come on babe, swing your heartache
come on babe, swing your heartache

here's something that you should know
getting older doesn't always mean you grow
turning from the shadows following behind you
to stare at the sun can easily blind you
the only way to learn, you're not afraid to die
could very well involve risking your life
despite the contradictions that these worlds imply,
you've got to live on, live on, live on.

come on babe (repeat to fade)

Disturbios en AndrĂ³meda - Sobre un mar de ilusiones (Disturbances in Andromeda, On a Sea of Illusions)


I am posting this video since it deals with things of a mystical and Apocalyptic nature. And it is very symbolic of things going on in the undercurrent of our world today. For example, whatever title you want to give it, the figures in this video seem to symbolize the 'enlightened one' perhaps, the lighter colored figure with the long snout like nose and the hair extruding from its head. The black panther looking creature is obviously the enemy. And the sad damaged looking figure seems to me to represent humanity beaten down, and needing to be rescued. Take it as you will. But if you listen to the lyrics, it is about saying goodbye to this world, going to another one, and ultimately redemption. It is very fitting to the Apocalyptic themes abounding these days in anticipation of '2012' of whatever lies around the corner. Some believe that the Jesus Christ will return and 'Rapture' everyone away, some believe in a worldwide catastrophe culminating in worldwide destruction, some believe in War, some believe that the Aliens will arrive and either destroy or save Humanity. Whatever is the belief, I believe we are on the verge of something very new and different perhaps. The Mayans' belief of the 2012 'end of the world' may not be a literal end, but more of a beginning. It could be an 'end' yes, of the current world system, but I believe that something new will occur, although it will be like nothing we've all been expecting or imagining. But that is the good part.
