ad astra per alia porci


losing my religion

I lost it a long time ago.

The sense of uncertainty and vulnerability that pervades this song speaks to me in various ways. As with most art,  there are layers of meaning and this song bears various meanings for me.

As I grew older, appearances and reality diverge more and more, and the idea of the world being an essentially benevolent place is replaced by a more realistic conception of the world as essentially ambivalent to human life. Speech is politicised as human interaction is laced with the poison of power plays between jostling competing humans.

Oh, it has quite a nice tune too.
