Greece: The Debt Crisis, the Eurozone and a Lost Generation
by on June 27, 2015 in Greek Press

“Better to die on your feet than live on your knees” – Aeschylus

“One of the greatest disservices you can do to someone is to lend them money that they can’t pay back.”

In response to the Debt Crisis in Greece: The song “Run Away” from the album, Synemotion:

A wake-up call to the frustrations of our crisis-laden youth in these trying times of austerity, lack of opportunity, wasted talent and false promises. With irony and mocking sarcasm her performance reveals her “lost generation’s” total awareness of the futility of quick fixes (jobs with no future) and false idols (media’s portrayal of success and pop culture) — cutting to the root cause of our world’s self-destructive and power-hungry motivation — which is unconsciousness of true values.

Lyrics:

TRIALS

And so you said, go on without me
Can’t leave you this time,
Whispering retreat will keep us safe,
Is there a way for us to banish fate?
Get out of this place.
Get out of my face.

Can’t we make it through, these raging fires?
Never-ending wars.
Only sad endings, no one wins.
Is there a way for us to find our fortune?
Escape this time.
Escape our lives.

I know we have to go.
We won’t survive these trials.
Let’s be honest with ourselves.
Only take what’s now to fool our hearts.
Self-destructive world.
Silent sleeping souls.

Walking down the stream,
Falling down, but I feel… heat.
And I, I feel free,
But I am sure,
I’m in captivity.

I know we have to go.
We won’t survive these trials.
Let’s be honest with ourselves .
Only take what’s now to fool our hearts.
Self-destructive world.
Silent sleeping souls.

The sound means darkness,
Darkness and headlights,
Life became exacting,
And we became an addict in the throes of a cure,
Everything just seemed to be perfectly composed,
Yet I can hear time gunning down the turnpike
Placed under the spotlight,
Pretend we are in power,
Act upon and with our dance,
But little do we know
We are the show.

I know we have to go
We won’t survive these trials
Let’s be honest with ourselves
Only take what’s now to fool our hearts.
Self-destructive world.
Silent sleeping souls.
