Thirty Years Of Farming Lyrics
There's a little white note on a gate by the road
That a man put up yesterday
And when we saw it we all ran out
Just to see what it had to say
And when we read it our eyes filled with tears
And they fell to the cold hard clay
Something 'bout a mortgage
Something 'bout foreclosure
Something 'bout failing to pay
Oh, and on the post by the general store
They've put up a little sign
An auction sale, day after tomorrow
At the end of the Lincoln Line
Thirty years of farming
Thirty years of heartache
Thirty years of day to day
Oh, my Daddy stopped talking
The day the farm was auctioned
There was nothing left to say
Oh, my Mama's tears fell freely down
As she walked amongst the flowers in the yard
And every number the auctioneer called
Was like a blow to her precious heart
And every number the auctioneer called
Meant another thing was sold that day
Till everything was auctioned
And we stood there watching
As they loaded it and drove it away
Oh, and on the post by the general store
They've put up a little sign
An auction sale, day after tomorrow
At the end of the Lincoln Line
Thirty years of farming
Thirty years of heartache
Thirty years of day to day
Oh, my Daddy stopped talking
The day the farm was auctioned
There was nothing left to say
At the day's first dawning
We awoke this morning
There was nothing for us to do
Nothing in the granary
No hay in the mow
No cattle, no tractor, no tools
So we loaded up the car
With the clothes that we wore
And the few things we managed to save
Mama read from The Book
We took one last look
And then we drove away
Oh, and on the post by the general store
They've put up a little sign
An auction sale day after tomorrow
At the end of the Lincoln Line
Thirty years of farming
Thirty years of heartache
Thirty years of day to day
Oh, my Daddy stopped talking
The day the farm was auctioned
There was nothing left to say
Oh, my Daddy stopped talking
The day the farm was auctioned
There was nothing left to say

Well, I did not know where else to put music review/analysis so here ya go:

THE CASTLE IS BURNING!
08/09/2020
PMTV Channel on Music, Democracy and Housing

And again PMTV Channel is in touch , a channel about interesting songs and meanings hidden in them. As before , we will show what traces the reality around us leaves in music, and try to color our gloomy reality.

Image

It was Churchill , right? He once said that "democracy is the worst form of government, if you don't count everyone else" ? Yes, he is. Although, on the other hand, what is the difference, in general, who said this phrase? Another thing is important - it can be understood in different ways. For example, agree. This is the simplest. Or you may disagree that, admittedly, it's not difficult either. Or you can agree partially. For example, stopping in the first half? Like, yes, democracy is fucking disgusting. Churchill himself said that. Dear historical figure. True, in this case there will be a lot of nuances.

Let's start with the personality of the author himself. Churchill is a figure both historical and sweeping, but not respected by everyone. At least respect for him is a controversial thing. Well, if only because the fat man did not like the common people (simple and deep, one must think) and, therefore, he did not like the people's power in all its forms and manifestations. Therefore, Churchill could not fail to call democracy (the rule of the people) something terrible. However, according to his own words, it turns out that so far humanity could not come up with anything better. How so? Nothing like that, if you allow yourself a simple trick.

Democracy, for the opponents of people's power, is, of course, a most unpleasant business. But at the same time, the word is already very fashionable, in demand, and trump. Everyone needs it, this democracy. And in order not to lose face and, God forbid, political points, all we need to do is to appropriate this democracy in order to tweak it later. Correct. Edit. Corrupt. And “give” this deception to the people, saying generously: “Oh, your democracy. And you can’t with her, and without her too. Anyway, there is nothing better. Keep "... The people are holding. He breaks into a happy smile and enjoys the civil liberties that democracy guarantees: goes to rallies, signs petitions, votes, thinking that it really decides something. Well, of course, this is democracy, the rule of the people. However, few of the people understand that an insidious mass deception lives day after day.

Image

“Sorian, but Democracy is Changing” is sung in the song “Democracy” by Killing Joke . We have already mentioned them once. In their 1996 song, the group describes in simple terms the result of the Churchillian deception, a democracy that is being changed in front of the source of power, but the source of power does not notice anything:
“You have a choice, we are your voice.
Red, blue or yellow.
We will make fun of the greens.
A new five-lane highway will appear
On which you will not have a referendum anyway ”.
Then it is about “funny handshakes and insider dealings”, with the help of which real “democracy” is created. And how can we not recall the recent news about the adopted laws on deforestation near Lake Baikal for new routes and roads? And remembering how not to ask the question: who, let me ask you, decided all this? You? I AM? Whom did we shake hands with and with whom did we negotiate? Yes, it seems to be with anyone. What does this come out of? Someone makes important decisions for the whole country for us, that is, even for us?
“I'm on a poster and a badge
Or pasted across the ballot box.
No value, no purpose
Do not reflect my deepest thoughts and desires.
Education in outdated skills,
Industrial psychologists
Planning campaigns paid for by big business. ”
All the right hands have already been shaken, all profitable deals have been concluded, all useful votes have been taken into account. And where in this corporate opera the place for the most numerous part of the troupe called "the people" belongs is absolutely unclear. But all the same, they will continue to convince us that all this is democracy. Even slightly altered in an interest that we'd better not guess. And to exclude such a possibility, the source of power must be as uneducated as possible. It is foolish if we abandon euphemisms. How else to explain the optimization of schools and other measures to kill education? No, education, of course, will remain. Only not for the deep people. Over time, an online school with a promisingly overwhelming Internet class up to the fifth (God forbid) will fit him. He knows how to write, read, count, he will be able to get a job, he will draw a cross-tick in the bulletin,


By the way, about the mortgage. Do you have it? Are you ready to help the construction business of a great power solve the housing issue, taking advantage of a looming historical moment, which the president suddenly spoke about? How, not yet? So hurry up! New square meters will not buy themselves. All this, of course, is absurd, funny and sad. With the current pace of construction of multi-apartment residential complexes for every taste and color, it is still possible to rent an apartment, realizing that even this is much wiser than mortgage bondage, and at the same time to hear about the historical chance (finally!) To solve the housing issue ... In general, that's all they understand everything perfectly. They understand that the housing issue will be historically "resolved", as usual, not completely and necessarily at our expense.


Here are they “empty houses in the Promised Land - a luxury they cannot reach”, as it sounded in the song of the Irish band Therapy? “Success? Success is Survival ” . Yes, now we definitely live in a European way. This means that the living space is filled up, but there is no one to live on it anyway. Is it London, one of the richest cities in the world, where there are more empty houses than homeless people? When will Britain be given its historic chance to solve this damned housing issue?

Or maybe this will be a new historical chance for deep peoples around the world to see their light, strike a match and set fire to castles, master's castles, built by people's hands?
“You know, there is no great lord in the castle -
Just a court retinue and her guards.
And we still plow their fields
Dreaming that one day we will become like them.
We build their iron fleet
And we guard their golden mountains,
Hoping that they will intercede for us,
But they won't.
Let's burn their castle! ”
Image

In the song “Burn the Castle” by the New Model Army band , debt-ridden, drunk with alcohol and fear people believe that a certain lord in a high castle owns everything that ordinary people create. The people polish the master's armor and guard his wealth, hoping that at the right time the master will protect him, but no, he will not. Having understood this, the people finally make a decision: the castle should burn.

And this decision is truly democratic, if we still remember the meaning of this word. People power. People's power. The people's will, the people's decision is in the interests of the people. Not gentlemen in castles, not financial structures, not large corporations, but people. The very people who are “YAM”. The thirst for unification of which is more noticeable with each new scandal, new calamity, new tragedy. But the union is still convulsive, hysterical, blind and therefore useless. But the trouble is the beginning. And even though while “YaMy” are still in the pit, sooner or later, the deep people will nevertheless come out of their depths, say their word and do their job. And it will be a real, clean and correct democracy for fear and destruction of the Churchills, Trump and other zeroers. Because the castle is on fire!
