Red Hot Summer reflects on the rising threat to democracy and human rights in our world today. We see confrontations in the streets in the US, in Hong Kong and in parts of Europe, where the authority uses military force against their own people. People guilty of nothing else than standing up for their basic rights. This threat is real, it is a venom and it cannot be ignored. The title relates to the ”Red Summer” of 1919. Google it.
This is a song about change. Due to disease, political instability and digital overload of facts and lies, there is a new normal that we are supposed to adapt to, and it’s based on fear, force and mistrust. But who is really normal in this world? Who fits in and who is cast out and trampled? Is life in constant fear really living.
The Price You Pay
The Price You Pay is a song based on the love of the US – what it used to stand for. It's a call to fight for justice, stand up for equality, respecting knowledge and speaking up for those that don't have a strong enough voice. We watch in horror and disbelief as all those things are being torn down one by one. The time will come when we all in the world community will have to pay the price of letting egomaniacs make a mockery of democracy. Hatred is not the answer. Peace, love and understanding is.
This is a Wake Up call to all those who are asleep at the wheel while our planet and our society is heading straight for disaster. It is a call to rise from your TikTok-influencer induced zombie life and stand up for something you believe in.
