Note : A kind soul embedded the song in a reply to the thread further down.

Europe already knows this song well but it's just now hitting the US. I'm absolutely in love with it. It's called "Prayer in C". It's by a French Israeli duo called Lily Wood and the prick but was ripped by a German electronic artist and remixed for mass consumption.

It has multiple layers of meaning and manages to be both very simplistic and complex as well as subtle and blunt simultaneously. One of the meanings which is not so hard to catch is highly relevant to the world's current state of affairs. Love it or hate it, I thought I'd share as the first time I heard it I was blown away by the haunting, melancholy nature of the song.

Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you


See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you

See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, our hands will get more wrinkled
And our hair, it will be grey
Don't think I could forgive you

And see the children are starving
And their houses were destroyed
Don't think they could forgive you

Hey, when seas will cover lands
And when men will be no more
Don't think you can forgive you

Yeah, when there'll just be silence
And when life will be over
Don't think you will forgive you

Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you

See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, you never said a word
You didn't send me no letter
Don't think I could forgive you

See, our world is slowly dying
I'm not wasting no more time
Don't think I could believe you

Ya, our hands will get more wrinkled
And our hair, it will be grey
Don't think I could forgive you

And see the children are starving
And their houses were destroyed
Don't think they could forgive you

Ey, when seas will cover lands
And when men will be no more
Don't think you can forgive you

Yeah, when there'll just be silence
And when life will be over
Don't think you will forgive you

I'm a noob. Can you do it? I didn't think it matters since we all have internet if we're on here. It's a simple google search away
. I put the lyrics for those who can't listen to something with sound right now.

Meh. I guess I am used to the real music of the 70s and 80s. Played by real musicians on real instruments with real singers.

The words are okay, but the music is terrible.

Not for me.

It happens. Music is perhaps the most personal in taste of all entertainment on par with reading. It's why I'm not big on music. People's opinions tend to be set in stone, myself included.

Below is a quote from a blog post about this song from someone in Belgium...


So I looked up the lyrics, and it turns out to be indeed some kind of prayer, but one to an absent, or maybe even non-existent God that lets evil happen. In the first verse the addressed one is blamed by the singer for ‘never saying a word nor sending a letter’ and will not be forgiven for that. The rest of the song gets more apocalyptic about life ending (both individual lives as human life and all life on Earth), and the addressed one will not be forgiven, not by the singer and not by starving children whose houses are destroyed. And when men and later even life will be over, it will not even be able to forgive itself.

I’d say that this is quite a bitter prayer, not? There’s a lot of anger directed to some god of sorts, for not letting anything know, for not saving this world, for the coming demise of humanity and life on Earth… It seems like the addressed one is either absent or disinterested as some deistic deity that put the world together and then took off its hands, or even completely non-existent. I always found it strange how some people talk to a (to them) nonexistent God and get very angry with it sometimes. As if they would have wanted some kind of God to exist, that isn’t there.

A prayer in C to an absent God
