Musical Monday on a Sunday: guilt and mercy

I have varied tastes in music. Sometimes it is the lyrics that really grab me… sometimes it is the tune… and occasionally (rarely) it is the video. This particular song/video has components of  hope and sorrow.  I find some of the images disturbing, but really? That is why they were included.  The band wanted us to stop and think about what we are doing — and what we have already done — to the world, to ourselves and to one another.  I think they ask, is there forgiveness? Can we forgive ourselves and start again? Will we make better choices in the future?

Saturday night

sleepy slivered moon
watched over by silent star
lays back in dark sky
