i need another place, will there be peace?
i need another world, this one is nearly gone.
still have too many dreams, never seen the light.
i need another world, a place where i can go.
during chaotic times like these, when a mind can feel so overwhelmed by anything in its way… the lead track from antony & the johnsons new ep another world stands out as absolutely stunning in all its simplistic glory. with a bright light and soft touch of piano keys, a calmness casts a shadow through the sound and allows antony’s sincere lyrics to powerfully shine. it seems difficult not to let in the melancholy meaning of everything that life keeps overcoming but somehow within the tears, a sense of optimism appears.
“I wanted to mark this moment very clearly in my life.
I love and feel so anchored by the natural world,
which gave birth to me, which supplies and supports my life,
this experience of color and light and aching beauty.
But the world is changing so fast now.
is a song for the present but also a song for the future.
What have I lost? And what is to come?”
