about

This song is dedicated to Bezos, Musk, and all other billionaires that wake up with enough capital to solve world hunger, but instead decide to spend money on a immoral space race.

The song is the hymn of a future civilization, one in which billionaires left to space, ironically leaving a better society behind. Without billionaires, humans learned to reconnect (religare in Latin — religion, in English) with Earth, celebrating nature and its cycles.

lyrics

Thursday night
We celebrate the ones we love
We praise the goddess
And our ancestors above

And when we see
Young faces full of smiles
We close our eyes
Accepting all our trials

On the Friday, the day after
We hear the laughter
We hear the rumble

And the rain falls from the sky
Our spirits high
Our spirits humble

On the seventh day
We finally take a rest
New life is in the ground
And the season’s blessed

We hear the stories
Of the founders of our nation
Long lost memories
Crossing generations

Sunday night we burn the effigies
The frail identities
Of those that left

On a senseless quest to space
A fruitless race
A thoughtless theft

Monday we all sit in silence by the fire
Wondering how things could be different
Tuesday we share our words of wisdom
Wednesday we break down the walls of our prison

Thursday night
We celebrate the ones we love
We praise the goddess
And our ancestors above

And when we see
Young faces full of smiles
We close our eyes
Accepting all our trials

On the Friday, the day after
We hear the laughter
We hear the rumble

And the rain falls from the sky
Our spirits high
Our spirits humble

Thursday night
We celebrate the ones we love
