about

The odds of any of us, as individual persons, actually having come into being seem to be almost impossibly small. Both your parents had to survive long enough to procreate, each of their parents had to do the same, and so on back through countless generations. If any one link in this genetic chain had fallen victim to war, disease, accident or disaster before passing on their genes to the next generation, you wouldn’t exist. To me, this is pretty mind blowing and, on occasion, pretty overwhelming, too – what a debt to owe!

lyrics

I feel the weight
Of ancestors on my shoulders
Like their doom depends
On the choices that I make.
Observations from far horizons oppress me
I cannot bear these expectations – set me free!

One hundred generations,
A hundred thousand souls
Long for continuation...
Can you feel them watching you?
Can you feel them watching YOU?

Heavy is the burden
Of forlorn hopes and forgone dreams
Passed down to me
Through the genes of time.
A waterfall echoes through the ages (deafens me)
I can almost feel their exhortations – leave me be!

One hundred generations,
A hundred thousand souls
Long for continuation...
Can you feel them watching you?
Can you feel them watching YOU?

I feel this weight
Ancestral weight
Crushing me.
