Song of the Day: Halsey – Control

Fly

This fly waited perfectly for me to take a picture of it. Such a nice fly.

I have The Late Night Show w/ Stephen Colbert to thank for today’s song of the day. He had Halsey on his show and she played New Americana which made me notice two things. First, she sounds great live and two, she is very much speaking to her generation, the Millennials.  Although I believe we can be whoever we want and I don’t rely too much on labels as I think labels diminish individual humanity, and I know just saying that would throw me under the Millennial label. The song spoke to young people and her voice was enchanting. This morning I listened to her whole CD to see if she only had one good song or many. Turns out I like most of her songs! Score for discovering new artists! So instead of choosing New Americana as the song of the day, I have chosen Halsey – Control. It brought to mind the question that plagues my generation: Who is in control? With so many systems broken, so many corporations doing whatever they want, shootings happening regularly, college prices continually rising, the 1% continuing to siphon the money to themselves…. There are many things that people in our time could be afraid of. There will always be something to be afraid of, no matter when we are born. We can’t escape the awful energy. The thing to remember is that, even when it seems like we have no control or options… we are the ones who can tip the scale. The masses, the wonderful people, when they/we unite for the common good, that is when action takes place and social positive change happens. We cannot be afraid. We are the ones holding the reigns. So to those who are struggling to keep the wool over our eyes to keep us from moving and acting, Goddamn right, you should be scared of me. Be very worried. We might just have a social revolution.

“And all the kids cried out,
“Please stop, you’re scaring me”
I can’t help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?”

Here are the Lyrics
