This is the last song from “The Standing Man, 1st chapter” album. The curtain is lowered till the next chapter of the trilogy, and everything ends ok and seems to open towards a better future. Nothing seems to prevent our protagonist from being free. The sky is blue, white clouds, and it’s a windy but fresh weather. The horizon shines. There’s a path that leads away, and Dave Miller is on the run. We hope everything goes well for those who still believe in freedom. It will be a matter of waiting to see what happens.
Despite Sallust‘s (86-34 BC) quote: “Few men desire liberty: The majority are satisfied with a just master”, a lot of you want to be free, at least as far as being able to decide about your lives and actions to take. So this song, the 9th one from “The Standing Man” album, it’s for you bravehearts.
It’s time to leave everything behind. All the chains, everything that oppresses you, that doesn’t let you be. The faith for a new beginning will found in the beyond, far from borders, away from the stalking and pressures. Time to believe in something better.
Welcome to “Climbing High“; the 8th single from “The Standing Man, 1st chapter” album.
This song suggests the possibility that, perhaps, this System be educating us to attain consequences (Being worth millions, possessing power, being successful, influential, admired, fat cat in assets, etc…) without the need of striving to causes. Which from its conception would be unnatural, since it goes against a basic physics law; Cause and Effect. It cannot happen inversely; tsunamis cannot happen before the earthquakes. So, we cannot hold a consequence as a target without a cause first.
Our protagonist understands that “the error” in the Utopian Capitalist Neoconservative nurturing that he has had, settles down in the fact that consequences are chased by Humanity and not causes. The danger of not holding a cause in life, would take us to look for the easy and shorter road toward the consequences demanded by this sick society. What will happen then? Well, what happens whenever we act without direction, without focus, without causes (As Hitler prays once: “Truth doesn’t matters, but victory…”); “the end will justify our means”. And it’s here where we will go deeply into corruption, to theft and murder.
The natural focus is a cause. If you hold a cause, you will fight to be -and make- the best for it without asking for any in return. But then, after years of studies, experiences, and hard work, you will get what you deserve: maybe success, admiration, respect, or money, or even power. Maybe the most important consequence: be trascendant (be alive, be still here, after death).
Here is the 7th song from the album called “The Standing Man, 1st chapter”.
Time to break the shackle that the system has put us in perpetuity, and release those other chains loaded with guilt; secured by ourselves after years of indoctrination in order not to fail others. We do not owe anything to anyone, except compassion and solidarity for those who remain enslaved. David Miller begins to be aware of all the power he has, and always had.
Ps: Indoctrinated to live in Dualism, through School Education (intelligent or ignorant), Religion (good or bad), Political Ideologies (left or right), the Competitive System based on results (successful or loser), the Banking System of the loan and the debt (rich or poor), the Lords of War (brave or coward), from the Mass Control through Media (updated or obsolete), and above all through the Social Construct Judgement, through Guilt, by not complying with its Success Expectations (innocent or guilty. “So, you will have to born again”: the Arcane).
Today you will listen the sixth song from “The Standing Man” album, and the 1st ballad of Thy Station, which talks about Sally; the cosmopolitan –and competitive– city devoted to the luxury and superficial pleasures of Dave Miller’s world. The song talks about the rupture between our protagonist and the collective ideal that the system proposes to its inhabitants. The break happens as if it were a love-and-hate relationship.
