I got a message from Zallaz while I was about to board a plane London-Bangkok yesterday night (London time) telling he had sent this awesome tune. 11hours later I arrived to Bangkok, around 4pm (Bangkok time) and now it's almost midnight here and we have finished it. Quite weird way of doing things... but I think it was absolutely worth it, for many many reasons. What happened has touched us all.

Comments more than welcome, as usual.

the lyrics:

something's happening, something's happening
and we don't know what it is (bis)
there's chaos, there's confusion
and we don't know what is for (bis)
he was on that plane, she was on that train
and they have done it again, yes, they've done it again

I can't believe it, can't believe it
but it is what it is (bis)
what's the purpose, what's the reason
for doing something like this (bis)
they have mothers too, they have brothers too
they have lovers too, but this is what they do

it's stupid, it's so cruel
to do something like this (bis)
and it's not over, it's not over
it will happen again (bis)

but the thing that they don't know
is that the world will never surrender
and the thing that they don't know
is that the world will never surrender
life will go on (3 times)
because the beauty is that they survived

sugar licker Artist Lili for picking up '7/7' and running with it thank-you, the most tragic of subject matters.

For all the people who's lives where cut short or injured last Thursday needlessly my thoughts are with you.

zallaz

(Powermac99 and all the iComp team to place '7/7' in 'Spotlight' words fail me, Thank-You)

Lil, very appropriate words and tone, a detached feel of the horror of yet another senseless event caused by wrongheaded, deluded individuals.

Musically, I like what zallaz did with the drums and the halting structure.

This piece is jaggedly raw & soothing at the same time. The lyrics & their repetition are very stream of consciousness - but more as if they weren't meant for an audience... It's almost like being inside Lili's head & listening to her digest, then rationalize, then formulate a way to cope with the events.

It's an impressive piece – one that's hard to "rate" or "judge" objectively. How do you rate "performance" or "creativity" when someone has pulled their skin back to offer you such an immediate view of their emotional state?

Thanks for putting it (& yourself) out there for us, Lili.

7/7 is/was a track 'in the moment' like a photograph.

some weeks later more incidents in London and across the UK.

Lili's back safely in 'Planet Ohio' after many air miles. Lili's lyrics captured that 'moment' it's the line '...it will happen again' has been proved 'prophetic'.

the good will out, and Lili's underlying positve message that concludes the track is very pertinent.

All 5 for your creation! All zero for the terrorists... But come to think of it... maybe 1 to them, for they made you do this creation... and so the world tumbles along in a stream of creation..... destruction.. creation.... destruction.. like the breathing universe...

This was pretty good. It's an original way of approaching this kind of song. Personally, though, I feel that the vocal approach lacks the neccessary soul and passion that people relate to in these songs. It casts a very pessimistic look at the situation. If I had a relative who died on 7/7, I think this would make things worse. Instead of being uplifting to victims, I feel it aims to effect terrorists and make them feel guilt. Anyway, it's good, but it could be a lot better. Keep it up, guys! Peace + love.

Unfortunately,
I think that the lyrics answer the questions for you. Just as countries drop bombs in order to secure the "security" and "liberty" of their citizens, and mothers and fathers send their little boys and girls off to wars to fight for "America" and England, to kill kill kill mothers and daughters and fathers and brothers by the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS -- cheered as heroes and brave soldiers, so too these men and women that set out to comitt these acts are comitted to a cause that they feel is justified, and that is to kill in defense of what they believe to be precious. ALL dogma is dogma, no matter what religion. Intrinsic to the Scriptures [ of judaism, of islam, of christianity] one finds the sanction of killing ... so let us not condemn before we can radically transform our minds ... what happens when the tears dry up? do we keep bombing in revenge? what happens when the corpses are cleaned up off the streets? do we continue to ignore the poverty and despair that fuel these ideologies of self-implosion via explosives? I am not willing to take the easy way out and just condemn all of these acts... as hateful as they are, a condemnation stops short of a solution. hate propogates hate. war is only in our minds. hate is in our hands. our feet. our mouths. it is where we spend our money. buy our clothes. it is in our political process and justice system.
