For a new year

We say good bye to 2019 and say hi to 2020 with another Iron Maiden song, Blood Brothers; as you know, our traditional new year song is from Iron Maiden always; Up to Irons! 😉

Here it’s lyrics:

And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you’d expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of me
Just for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned?
Not if you’re taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burnt
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

There are times when I feel I’m afraid for the world
There are times I’m ashamed of us all
When you’re floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad
Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate’s own hand
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

When you think that we’ve used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we’re living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers

And yes, I think all we are blood brothers. 2019 is already telling us not to be too hopeful for 2020. From the beginning, this century did not promise much. But perhaps, like the elderls say, “the darkest hour of the night is just before the dawn.” I guess that depends on the intensity of the darkness. So we don’t know how dark it is right now. Lets hope peace on very this day for the new generations of planet earth! They all need this!

While we wait 2020, my all earthling friends, WD and I wish to all you healthy (as mind and body:)), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!

Happy New Year!

  2. New Year greetings, to you, too, Migo!

    I’ll wait until the clock strikes 2020 to play our ‘Blood Brothers’ anthem.

    Yes, indeed, it will be another year and mountains more of stress and suffering for most everyone on this football that we call planet Earth.

    And yet, and yet, there are signs of things beginning to stir in positive directions:

    Over the last month, on average, each week, over 500 cities world-wide have had significant protests, mainly led by the young. This is has involved multiple countries simultaneously making it unique in history.

    At the very least, it would appear, if the stirring isn’t yet at its core truly progressive, that a mass rejection of things as they are is slowly coming to a boil everywhere.

    Here’s to hoping, then, that the smug bastards on top will find reasons to be a little less smug in 2020!

    • Already human beings are not going up before hitting the bottom. Let’s hope those youngs unite all around the planet. We support them with our anthem: We’re blood brothers, we’re… I am already singing:) Happy, peaceful and healthy new year to you my earthling friend!
