Music of the world 008: Freedom is a state of mind

Freedom
Chords of Truth
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Styles: Folk/Americana
Chords of Truth brings songs with simple lyrics but such depth which will make you think as you want to hum along. This song Freedom will definitely make you think about Freedom. Everyone talks about freedom. Everyone wants freedom. Everyone is fighting about freedom. What is freedom to you?  Chords of truth sings about freedom with a perfect blend of music.
Freedom is Freedom is Freedom is oh ya Freedom is undefined
No one can tell you what it means
because it’s a state of mind
Listening to this song back to back, I think of Freedom.
Even when you are bonded physically in some situation of your life, you could be free. It’s a state of mind. Your physical freedom could be limited but not your mental freedom. And the physical aspect is only transient. Isn’t it? If freedom is a state of mind, what are you fighting for?

The other song which caught me is the song ““Wonder”

I wonder bout the people who can’t seem to see
through their preconceptions that they cling to for life and death
even if it conflicts with what they know deep down to be reasonable
for our progress, for our culture, for our future

It makes me think about Manipur, my hometown filled with conflicts, anger and hatred, such hatred where the people continue fighting with each other showing their power within what they could control. But deep down I am sure when darkness strikes and insomnia seizes you, you do think about the daily wage worker, the old women vendors who had to leave the vegetables they grew over time, fleeing with fear and chaos created, the laborers and the whole lot of people who suffers at the cost of the Bandh you have enforced for your protest, to get justice. And then you convince yourself that you are doing it for our progress, for our culture, for our future. You want to be reasonable but are you?
